Ridley Scott To Direct Second Greatest Story Ever Told

| Filed under: Brad PittFilm FlickersGwyneth Paltrow

Ridley Scott Will Make A Moses Film

Move over Charlton Heston, there’s a new prophet in town!

From aliens terrorizing spaceships to self-empowered women driving their convertibles off a cliff, Ridley Scott has dealt with a plethora of different plots during his days of directing.

But now, on the heels of the successful Prometheus, he aims to tell a different kind of origin story.

According to Esquire, Scott’s next film will be Moses!!

And it won't be a biopic of Chris Martin and Gwyneth’s progeny, LOLz!!

This could actually be an action-packed Bible blockbuster!!

From oppressed Israelites fleeing Egypt, to entire seas being parted, and even heavy tablets inscribed with behavioral guidelines being carried up and down mountains — sounds like the makings of a decent Summer movie!

So who will he cast in the lead role??

Brad Pitt? Clint Eastwood? A holographic Heston? Chris Tucker???

U tell us who should play the part!!

    Someone tell that girl she looks like a drunken stork. ALL YOU WOMEN on the red carpet — we think you look like idiots when you stand like that! Don't you look at the pics yourself? Can't you see how stupid that is?

    Either Mandy Patinkin or Ian McKellen would be good as Moses… except Mandy is totally _owning_ his character in Homeland — and it would be wierd not to see short, hairy-footed little people running around Ian.

    Didn't they already do a remake of the 10 commandments a few years ago? I think it was a mini series? I don't think anything can compare to the Charlton Heston version, it's a classic and a tradition to watch it in our house every year. I'd be curious to see what Ridley Scott can come up with, but most remakes stink!

    The awkward moment will come when he writes into the story a scene in which Miriam shaves her head, joins an all male military academy and fights an alien in space.

    Now this would be very interesting.
    Nobody has attempted to tell the story of the Exodus since 1959 & Cecil B. DeMille's
    "The Ten Commandmants" sure they've tried telling it via animation but not via a
    full film feature with live actors/actresses & a cast of thousands of extras????
    What studio would even back something like this????
    It may even have to be a multi studio film???
    And who would you cast as Moses??? Harrison Ford?
    Also I would hope that the only special effects that Ridley Scott would use are for the
    Plagues & parting of the Red Sea~ nothing else Please. Stay true to the Biblicial Story.
    Let the casting sessions begin.
