The Scorpion King is a 2002 film starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Michael Clarke Duncan, Kelly Hu, Steven Brand, Ralf Moeller, and Grant Heslov, and is directed by Chuck Russell. It is a spin-off prequel to The Mummy series, following the story of Mathayus the Scorpion King, the character who was featured in The Mummy Returns.
The events of The Scorpion King take place 5000 years before the events in The Mummy Returns, and shows Mathayus' origins and how he rose to power as the Scorpion King. The name itself is a reference to an indisputably real king during the protodynastic period of Ancient Egyptian history, Scorpion II.
The Scorpion King was the first film where The Rock played a lead role, following on from his big-screen debut as a peripheral character in The Mummy Returns.
The Godsmack song "I Stand Alone" featured in this film, which is heard in the credits.
A prequel to the film, The Scorpion King: Rise of the Akkadian, is expected to begin filming in October of 2007.
