'Moses' by Ridley Scott Coming

Ridley ScottERIC SPITZNAGEL: You know what would be awesome? You need to make a film adaptation of a Bible story.

RIDLEY SCOTT: Oh, yeah.

ES: Maybe the Virgin birth? No movie's ever told that story with enough gloopy, viscous afterbirth.

RS: No, I've got something else in the works. I'm already doing it. It's called Moses.

ES: You're kidding.

RS: Seriously, seriously. It's going to happen.

ES: With all apologies to Charlton Heston, that sounds like it's going to be the most amazing film about Moses ever made.

RS: It is. I probably shouldn't have let that slip out. I'm not supposed to say anything.

ES: Who am I going to tell?

RS: It's definitely in the cards, though. What's interesting to me about Moses isn't the big stuff that everybody knows. It's things like his relationship with Ramses [II, the pharaoh]. I honestly wasn't paying attention in school when I was told the story of Moses. Some of the details of his life are extraordinary.

Side Note: This isn't the only Moses project being developed though. Warner Bros. is working on one called Gods And Kings which Steven Spilerberg is supposed to direct. [GeekTyrant]
