So, they’re making the chariots and chestboards classic “Ben-Hur”.

Fair enough. It’s been a while since the last one.

And I don’t know about you, but when I think oily musclebound protagonist my mind also goes straight to this guy….

Yep, according to Deadline, ‘Loki’ Tom Hiddleston is being courted to drive the Chariot. Not exactly who most picture when the word ‘Toga’ is mentioned, but nevertheless he can probably yell. And stuff.

MGM, Paramount and Timur Bekmambetov are behind the new “Ben-Hur”, which hits theaters Feb 26, 2016.
