The real King Nebuchadnezzar (630-562 B.C.) ruled Babylon for fifty-seven years and was known for recovering lost provinces to the kingdom and restoring and rebuilding all the temples throughout his empire. According to the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament, Daniel interpreted dreams for Nebuchadnezzar, but unlike the story in the film, the incident in the lions' den occurred after the fall of Belshazzar under King Darius. Hollywood Reporter news items include Guy Zanett, Don Garrett and Joseph Mell in the cast, but their appearance in the final film has not been confirmed.
