Moses story set for the big screen

January 26th, 2012 by bash Comments is reporting that Steven Spielberg is set to direct a movie based on Jewish leader Moses.

The film, which has the working title Gods and Kings, would be a “Braveheart-ish version of the Moses story” with Warner Bros hoping that The War Horse director will film it with the gritty realism he used in Saving Private Ryan.

The last big production about the Moses story was directed by Cecile B. DeMille back in 1956. The Ten Commandments starred Charlton Heston in the lead role and dramatised the biblical story of the Exodus, in which the Hebrew-born Moses, an adopted Egyptian prince, becomes the deliverer of the Hebrew slaves.

Warner Bros wants to start production sometime in March or April of 2013, the website said.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
