Spielberg Wanted For Moses Epic

Warner Bros. Pictures is pursuing Steven Spielberg to direct their upcoming Moses biopic epic “Gods and Kings” reports Deadline.

The story chronicles Moses’ entire life span from birth to death using the Book of Exodus and other Old Testament biblical stories for reference. Despite the obvious similarity to “The Ten Commandments”, this is reportedly NOT a remake of that Cecil B. DeMille classic.

Michael Green and Stuart Hazeldine have penned the script which the helmer has reportedly read, though no formal offer is yet on the table and the chances of landing Spielberg are quite slim. Dan Lin and Matti Leshem are producing.
