Are we going through a new sword and sandals period? We are soon to be gifted with Darren Aronofsky’s take on the Noah story, Ridley Scott is in talks to do Exodus at Fox, Paul W.S. Anderson is taking on Pompeii, and for a long while Steven Spielberg was attached to Moses film Gods And Kings. Now we learn that Spielberg is dropping out of the picture in favor of Robopocalypse, because big robots are much more interesting than the Old Testament. What’s more, this year’s Oscar winner Ang Lee has expressed some serious interest in the project.

Gods And Kings will follow baby Moses to full-grown, tablet-carrying Moses to aged Moses, with all the fun times in between. This can only mean that it will incredibly long, because there’s a lot that happens in that man’s lifetime. The film is being scripted by Michael Green »
