Beginnings Of A New Trend? Story Of Moses To Get ‘300’ Style Makeover

Moses

The trades are reporting that 20th Century Fox has made a deal to acquire a pitch that would see the story of Moses from the Bible being retold using the highly-visual green screen styles that were used in the filming of Zack Snyder’s 300. The movie is expected to cover all of the chapters of the life of Moses, including almost dying as an infant, standing up to the Pharaoh, freeing the Hebrews from slavery, the plagues, and of course, the parting of the Red Sea.

The script is being written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, who recently wrote a new take on the classic tale of Moby Dick with a graphic novel vibe to it that is being developed for Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov.

The question now becomes: is this the start of a popular new trend in taking classic and biblical stories and giving them the graphic novel flavor? A movie about Moses using the look of 300 would of course be beautiful, but would it be nearly as entertaining, or would it just become The Passion of the Christ filmed entirely on green screen? You know it’s not going to be ultra-violent or anything like that; just a visual treat.

No word yet on when this project may begin production, or who will direct and star.
