More Bible Stories: ‘Methuselah’ Movie in the Works

Could we be seeing the return of the Biblical epic?

Warner Brothers just ordered a rewrite of the story of the oldest man in the Bible, Methuselah, Variety reports.  They assigned “I Am Legend 2” penner Arash Amel to do the rewrite.

According to the story, the movie “follows a 1,000-year-old man who has used his time on the planet to develop an unparalleled set of survival skills.”

So a geriatric adventure thriller?

Methuselah joins Noah, David, Moses, Mary Mother of Christ, and Christ the Lord in film preproduction.
