Spielberg Bible Film – Steven Spielberg is looking to adapt a great book for his next film, the Bible itself. The director is reportedly eyeing a Warner Bros project called “Gods and Kings,” which chronicles the life of Moses as told in the Old Testament.
Movieline reports that Spielberg is very interested in directing “Gods and Kings,” which follows Moses from a baby in a basket on the river, through parting the Red Sea and leading the Jews out of Egypt, to receiving the Ten Commandments.
The project would not be the first for Spielberg with a Jewish theme. The director helmed “Munich,” the story of the 1972 massacre of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics. More famously, Spielberg received an Oscar for best director for his movie “Schindler’s List.”
In a career of more than four decades, Spielberg’s films have covered many themes and genres.
Steven’s early science-fiction and adventure films were seen as an archetype of modern Hollywood blockbuster filmmaking.
In later years, his films began addressing such issues as the Holocaust, slavery, war and terrorism. He is considered one of the most popular and influential filmmakers in the history of cinema. Spielberg is also one of the co-founders of the DreamWorks movie studio.
