So Let It Be Written: Hollywood Developing Two ‘Moses’ Movies

Friday, November 19 by

Hollywood is going old-school. Actually it’s more like Old Testament. Both Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox are developing films based on the book of Exodus, which contains the story of Moses leading the Jews out of Egypt. Seems like a smart move considering Bible movies are like cat nip for flyover states.

At Fox, Bill Collage and Adam Cooper are penning the screenplay for ‘Untitled Moses Project,” while at Warner Bros., Stuart Hazeldine and Michael Green are writing Moses. Clearly, Warner Bros. is off to a better start in the name department. But considering that Collage and Cooper were the brains behind the Olsen-twins movie, New York Minute, let’s not count Fox out just yet. (Vulture)
