Hiddleston Wanted For The “Ben-Hur” Remake

Loki himself, British actor Tom Hiddleston, is reportedly the top choice to lead Timur Bekmambetov’s remake of “Ben-Hur” for MGM and Paramount Pictures

The new adaptation of Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel focuses on a falsely accused nobleman who survives years of slavery to take vengeance on his best friend who betrayed him but both have to choose between retribution and forgiveness.

Hiddleston is reportedly considering several projects at this point and is currently shooting Ben Wheatley’s “High-Rise” alongside Luke Evans.
