Moses Parting the Red SeaAfter The Passion of the Christ was released to a fanfare of 1m at the international box office, there was massive speculation that Hollywood would start to remake as many Bible stories as they possible could. Well, it’s been over five years since Mel Gibson’s movie retelling the last days of Jesus’ life was brought to our screens and it now seems that the wait is over for the next Hollywood Bible story.

Peter Chernin, recently moved from Universal Pictures to Twentieth Century Fox and Variety are reporting that his first movie will be a “300”-like re-imagining of the story of Moses.

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

It’s been 53 years since we saw the likes of Charlton Heston play the part of Moses in The Ten Commandments and it’ll be great to see what Fox can do with CGI and 3d at their disposal. Not that I’m saying it’ll be in 3d….. although how cool would it look to part the Red Sea in 3d! I’m getting a bit excited already!

More info as we get it……
