Ray Winstone to play Saul in ABC’s Of Kings and Prophets

Ray Winstone to play Saul in ABC’s Of Kings and Prophets March 5, 2015


Ray Winstone is going back to the Bible. The British actor — who played Quintus Arrius in the TV version of Ben-Hur and the villainous Tubal-Cain in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah — has signed on to play Saul, the paranoid first king of Israel, in Of Kings and Prophets, the ABC pilot that is being written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, the original writers of Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings.

Deadline reports that the pilot, which could lead to a full series, will be filmed in South Africa and directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff, who also directed the pilots for the TV shows Chicago Fire and Hostages. His other credits include the screenplays for The Day after Tomorrow and Traitor, the latter of which he also directed.

Incidentally, speaking of David-and-Saul-themed projects, Tim Chey’s awful-looking David and Goliath has a new trailer. It doesn’t really merit a post of its own at this point, so see the update to my post on the earlier (and now deleted) trailers.
