Steven Spielberg would’ve been hoarse after this pitch (sorry, bad “War Horse” joke).
The Oscar Winning filmmaker has convinced Warner Bros to let him make a biblical epic about Moses.
An insider tells Deadline that “Gods and Kings”, is “a movie like a Braveheart-ish version of the Moses story…Him coming down the river, being adopted, leaving his home, forming an army, and getting the Ten Commandments.”
The film won’t be in 3D nor will it be a glossy pic, the insider tells the site.
“There have been glossy versions of the Moses story but this would be a real warrior story,” we’re informed.
Production would start sometime early next year.
