Legendary director Steven Speilberg had reportedly shown his eagerness to bring the life of Moses on celluloid. A few months ago, Warner Brothers had approached the filmmaker to direct Gods and Kings.
There are reports that Steven Speilberg is likely to seal the deal with Warner Brothers. It is simply because the legendary director is a master in handling this kind of subjects. Adding to that his track record of making films on Jewish heritage is also good. Moreover, being a mega-budget film, the director is also considered as the first choice for directing the project, as his films have always guaranteed the returns.
Reports claim that Steven Spielberg recently read the script written by Michael Green and Stuart Hazeldine. However, the movie is not an upgraded version of 1956s movie The Ten Commandments. The planned project is inspired by the 'Book of Exodus' and some of the tales from the 'Old Testament'. It is the story of Moses from his birth till death.
Meanwhile, Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn has been declared as the highest opening animated film in India. The film has collected nearly Rs 7.35 crore at the Box Office in its first weekend.
