Holy Moses! Fox Breaks Ten Commandments With New Bible Pic

by at . Comments

The Red Sea is going to part again soon, but this time in... an action movie?

Moses 300

20th Century Fox is digging up the Ten Commandments to bring back the "biblical epic" genre with a retelling of the classic Moses story, Variety reports.  This time, though, the Old Testament will meet with new school action aesthetics, as the studio plans to tell the story 300-style.

The script will be written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, who recently completed a scripted retelling of Herman Melville's Moby Dick for director Timur Bekmambetov at Universal. Moby Dick was also pitched as a 300-esque actioner. 

Congratulations, Zach Snyder! Thanks to you, kids all around the world are going to think everyone in the Old Testament was sexy, ripped and half-naked! Let's not even get started on the plethora of historical inaccuracies that are sure to be introdu- oh, right, it's the Bible.

King Leonidas: My heart is broken for your loss.
Captain: Heart? I have filled my heart with hate.
King Leonidas: Good.

The world will know that free men stood against a tyrant, that few stood against many, and before this battle was over, that even a god-king can bleed.
