It's a "scream of grief frozen in marble." It's also one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. Now, Ben Kingsley plans to show us how the Taj Mahal came to be built.

The Associated Press reports that Kingsley will produce and star in 'Taj,' a period epic budgeted at $25 million to $30 million. He'll play Shah Jahan, the 17th century Mogul emperor who spent 22 years building the monument as a shrine to his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died giving birth to their 14th child.
