*Two strong female leads* *Two male leads* *Body swap madness in contemporary New York and exotic ancient Egypt*

Obsessed Egyptologist, Leo Warren, has made it his life's work to find ancient-Egyptian princess 'Nefi' Neferneferure. He finds it, interrupting a 3,000-year-old argument between Nefi and her guardian, Lord Idu, on the nature of love and whether looks matter more than character and integrity. Leo is so overjoyed at finding his long lost princess that even Alison, hard-nosed New Yorker girlfriend, gets jealous. But worse than that, Nefi falls for Leo and uses her own prayer of reincarnation to possess Alison's body so she can steal him, consigning the furious Alison's soul to Nefi's musty old shroud. Lord Idu, commanded by the gods to guard Nefi, is horrified and alarmed when the crew empties the tomb in the nick of time, saving them from underground flooding.

Nefi, Idu, and Alison (in Nefi's coffin) go in display in New York City, where Nefi (as Alison) hits on Leo relentlessly to make him more romantic, but he's not good at the boyfriend thing. She doesn't understand how he's so obsessed with a decaying old bag of bones. To him, Alison's suffered a breakdown and he wants to offload her at her parents' and see a shrink.

The gods are shocked. Anubis commands Lord Idu to get Nefi back in her coffin pronto, but Nefi absolutely refuses to co-operate. Alison's ghost goes full poltergeist and spooks the exhibition visitors. The museum management freaks out and closes the exhibition early. Desperate to take mortal form so he can go after the princess, Lord Idu 'borrows' a capybara from Central Park zoo, and Nefi is forced to shelter him in Leo's apartment to dodge the animal pound van. Leo finds out, so Idu uses his reincarnation prayer to steal Leo's body and puts Leo into the capybara. Nefi finally recognises that loyal Idu is the love of her life, and they are united in Leo and Alison's bodies. Idu gets a fit of conscience and restores Leo to his body. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking. The cargo flight to take the coffins back to Egypt leaves shortly. Idu is trying to make the flight, and Nefi must decide whether to die a mortal in NYC with Leo, or to return to Egypt and immortality with Idu.

Script withdrawn for rewrite. Ha ha. It happens.
