Warner Bros is developing a film about the Biblical King David.

The second project of its kind in the works, the film will be based on Rabbi David Wolpe's new book David: The Divided Heart, reports The Tracking Board.

"David is the most complex hero and anti-hero in the Bible," Wolpe told Variety. "He's a man who was a warrior, a prodigy, a poet, a king who united the nation and a man close to God who sins.

"I cannot imagine a more cinematic figure from the Bible."

Ridley Scott is developing a film based on the famous battle between David and Goliath with 20th Century Fox.

The veteran filmmaker's latest project is Exodus: Gods and Men, which tells the story of Moses's escape from Egypt, and will be released in December.
