Vin Diesel, the star of Hannibal the Conqueror, will also try his hand at directing the story, Dark Horizons reports. "I’m going to direct it. The studio thought it couldn’t be done for under 200 million so we went into soft pre-production and I found put I could get the budget down to 50 million. The process excited me so now I’m going to direct." The film tells the story of the great general who had a skill for surprise attacks. Diesel also stars in the forthcoming "The Pacifier."
