Mel Gibson may have his critics but he is, if nothing else, a born survivor. The American-born Australian-raised actor/filmmaker has been a part of the Australian and American film industries for some thirty years. The classically trained actor made an impact on movie audiences in the original Mad Max and cemented his reputation as a movie star with starring roles in two Peter Weir films, Gallipoli and The Year of Living Dangerously . His first attempts at international success met with mixed results despite critical acclaim for The Bounty , The River and Mrs. Soffel , but then came a third "Mad Max" and the first Lethal Weapon and the rest, as they say, is history.

Deadline is now reporting that he is finally close to a deal to helm the epic film. The project is described as “a Braveheart-ish version of the Moses story." It will reportedly feature Moses "coming down the river, being adopted, leaving his home, forming an army, and getting the Ten Commandments.” Even though the Red Sea parting would look cool in 3D, filming is not currently planned in 3D.
