Egypt Islamic body wants Noah movie banned

Egypt's top Islamic body says the big budget Hollywood biblical epic Noah, starring Russell Crowe, was irreligious and should not be screened in the country.
Al-Azhar institute, one of the region's main Sunni Muslim authorities, said the movie, slated to open in Egypt on March 26, violated Islam by portraying a prophet.
The film has already angered some Christian institutions in the United States, with Crowe's reportedly unconventional portrayal of Noah.
Al-Azhar can play an advisory role on censoring movies and books in Egypt, but does not have the final say.
