Spielberg Eyeing WB’s ‘Gods And Kings’

Looking at his career, you would imagine that someone like Steven Spielberg would have gotten his hands on a biblical project at some point, right? Well, until now, that hasn’t been the case.  Until now, that is.

Twitch is reporting that WB and Steven Spielberg have gone from laughingly chatting about to deeply discussing the likelihood of the latter jumping aboard the former’s upcoming film, Gods And Kings.  The film will be penned by Michael Green and Stuart Hazeldine, and will tell the story of Moses, from the man’s birth up until his death.

Now, before you freak out as I did when first hearing this, remember, Spielberg has both Lincoln and Robopocalypse set to shoot prior to anything else, not to mention a Tintin sequel that may take precedent if he both decides to actually helm it (what would be the third film in that franchise following Peter Jackson’s upcoming sequel) and if it even happens.  So overall, while it is indeed a really great story, and a film that both fits Spielberg’s style perfectly and itself sounds intriguing, it may be awhile before something comes of it.

What do you think?

  1. I’ve been hoping for another ‘Moses’ film ever since the awesomeness of The Prince of Egypt from DreamWorks Animation. I definitely hope Spielberg pushes forward with WB’s ‘Gods and Kings’! Hopefully they will bring this movie the forefront instead of letting it steep on the back-burner.
