David vs. Goliath Gets Updated

Scott Derrickson (“The Exorcism of Emily Rose”) is set to direct “Goliath”, a new family adventure film adaptation of the classic bible story David vs. Goliath, for Relativity Media says Heat Vision.

The story follows a young Shepard named David who is set on an epic chase to save his own life and the lives of his people when the fierce warrior Goliath begins tracking down a foretold king of the Israelites.

The film’s described as a period piece with contemporary sensibilities and a stylised (ala “300”) look. John D. Payne and Patrick McKay penned the script.
