The Ten Commandments Never Get Old

Charlton Heston is probably rolling over in his grave today with the news that 20th Century Fox is going to do a new movie based on the life of Moses. Then again, the Bible never really gets old, right?

Variety tells us this about the film:

Twentieth Century Fox will develop a retelling of the story of Moses, from his near death as an infant to his adoption into the Egyptian royal family, his defiance of the Pharaoh, and deliverance of the Hebrews from enslavement.

So is it me, or does this seem like a strangely old fashioned film to make? Everyone is just using 300 to describe their project in the hopes that this will garner some excitement for the project, but it seems unlikely that people will be lining up around the block for a Biblical biopic.

Then again, you cast Gerard Butler and who knows how much interest will build. Once some casting news comes down the pipe we'll have a better idea of whether or not this has potential.

Adam Cooper and Bill Collage are going to write the script, and they recently wrote a script for a remake of Moby Dick for Universal. Let's hope these dudes know what they're doing -- Moses is one guy whose life story you don't want to screw up, for a lot of different reasons.
