Laurence Fishburne will adapt, direct and star in an adaptation of Paulo Coelho's "The Alchemist"

"The Alchemist" is the title of the next film project that Laurence Fishburne will work on. Besides directing, he also will adapt and star in as well.

An adaptation of Paulo Coelho's "The Alchemist," the film centers on Fishburne's role, Santiago, a well educated who had intended to be a priest.

A desire for travel, however, prompted him to become a shepherd instead. He's contented, but then he dreams twice about hidden treasure, and a seer tells him to follow the dream's instructions: got to Egypt's pyramids, where he fill find a treasure. Santiago makes it to the pyramids and there learns where his fortune is actually to be found.

Shooting on the film will take place next year in Dubai, with Jordan as one of its locations.
