Yet another movie about the Maccabees in development? August 6, 2014

pablojosebarrosoDeadline and other websites are reporting that Mexican producer Pablo José Barroso (For Greater Glory, etc.) has announced a number of “faith-based” movie and TV projects. The one that catches my eye is a live-action film about the Maccabees, the Jewish rebels who defeated the Greek Syrians in the 2nd century BC. At least two films about the Maccabees have been proposed in recent years — one by Mel Gibson and one by Bruce Nash — though nothing has come to fruition so far. There is no word yet as to who might be writing or directing Barroso’s film, but I’ll post more details if any come along.
