Steven Spielberg Close to Deal to Direct Moses Epic

Deadline New York is reporting that famed director Steven Spielberg is close to committing to an epic about the life of the Biblical Moses, a much needed update on Cecil DeMille’s  legendary 1956 film “The Ten Commandments.”

“But this film is as far from a remake of the Cecile B. DeMille-directed epic as you can get even though they cover similar ground. Instead Warner Bros wants Spielberg to direct it with the gritty reality of Saving Private Ryan, which is considered a masterpiece redefining battle movies. ‘There have been glossy versions of the Moses story but this would be a real warrior story,’ an insider tells us.”

Add another to the longish list of Biblical epics in the works.
