    Qatari company comes with 150 million $ budget 3 part Mohammed film.
    Qatari+Turkish company come with 50 million $ movie about Mehmet the Conqueror and 25 million $ for 30 parts TV series.
    Both films in English.

    The last movie about Mohammed was "The Messenger" with ?Quinn?.
    It's decades old.
    I would like to see more of such big-budget projects.

    The Mohammed film is with the producer from Lord of the Rings and Apocalypsenow

    In February 2012 will come another production about Mehmet into cinema.
    The director says, that movie will be 170 minutes long and they already have 100 minutes shot. The missing 70 minutes is the siege of Constantinople, for which they are still seeking an appropriate location.

    The 100 existing minutes have been shot in Ataköy (nearby Istanbul village), where the 'Housing Development Administration' (TOKI) has built the various sceneries of movie.

    The movie music will come from Hans Zimmer (The Gladiator).

    There are used about 2.500 costumes, which were designed by Canan Göknil. She is chief-costume designer of Istanbul Metropolitan Opera. And 3.500 metal armours.
    The siege will consist of about 20.000 statist figures.

    The film will be available in 8 languages.

    The movie is shot with 4 parallel cameras, and the siege with 11 cameras for which Czech production studios are helping.

    ‘Fetih 1453’ Türkiye’nin en çok izlenen filmi olacak!

    It would be nice to see the blight of Asia on film.

    At the age of 21, Mehmet spoke 8 languages.
    He has published one of the oldest documents on religious freedoms affecting Christians.
    His decree regarding Franciscans living on Ottoman territory:

    Smart politician. I wonder what his political motives were, what were the inside and outside forces dictating this move on his part.

    When he conquered Constantinople, he did not abolish the Orthodox Patriarchate.
    Instead, he widened the Patriarchates authorities to something like a "grand duke" over all Orthodox believers in the Ottoman Empire.

    This is what the Ecumenical Patriarchate's website says:
    History | Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople

    Except under the Devsirme (conversion of young Christian boys to serve in the 4 imperial institutions), there was no forced proselytization.
    The Patriarchate served as earthly authority for the Christians in the Empire.
