Film Synopsis:

For his first significant film project acquisition, Peter Chernin (the former chairman of Fox News Corp) is taking on a project of Biblical proportions.

20th Century Fox has made a preemptive acquisition of a pitch to tell the story of Moses in 300 style. The tale will start with his near death as an infant to his adoption into the Egyptian royal family, his defiance of the Pharoah and deliverance of the Hebrews from enslavement.

Chernin will produce with Dylan Clark, who recently moved over from Universal to become president of Chernin’s Fox-based film company.

The script will be written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, who make this their followup to a high-level deal they made to reinvent Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, with a graphic novel feel, for director Timur Bekmambetov and producer Scott Stuber at Universal.

The Moses story will be told using the same green screen strategy as 300, so it will feel more like that pic or Braveheart than The Ten Commandments, the 1956 Cecil B. DeMille film. by Michael Fleming (Variety)

“The director recently sat down with “Esquire”, and when they casually suggested they’d like to see him direct a movie based on a Bible story, he revealed he already has one moving. “I’ve got something else in the works. I’m already doing it. It’s called ‘Moses.’ Seriously, seriously. It’s going to happen,” he said. “I probably shouldn’t have let that slip out. I’m not supposed to say anything. It’s definitely in the cards, though. What’s interesting to me about Moses isn’t the big stuff that everybody knows. It’s things like his relationship with Ramses [II, the pharaoh]. I honestly wasn’t paying attention in school when I was told the story of Moses. Some of the details of his life are extraordinary.” by Kevin Jagernauth

    I hope Mr. Scott, doesn’t blow it. A film on the dramaturgy of identiy firming and the leadership challenges of Moses could be awesome. O r it could appear to be bogus.

    I for one like most of his films, & I loved Gladiator, American Gangster and Black Hawk Down. However as a Jew I was was very turned off by His Kingdom of Heaven film, a few years back. It exuded a tad too much sophistry and in this film. cinemagrapic visuals were fantastic, but the story line and plot points were personally offensive to me.. The philosophy of the film seemed to celebrate a facile and unctious nihlism. The movie was devoid of Jews, and it seemed far too appeasing and almost apologist to maximize market penetration potentials and magnetize eye balls on the screen in Arab movie submarkets, to capture Arab ticket sales.

    Now I know it was a modest money maker for you, but it could have been a far better film and made much more of an equity yield.

    In the case of his Moses film, I hope Mr Scott, consults with many rabbinic scholars this time in his finalizing the script. Since Mr. Scott and Mr. Speiberg are about to release two Moses themed movies within short time of each other, it is my sincere hope that both films can find success, although the competitions for religious epic movie going cash flows is going to be a sight to behold in future Box office Mojo reports.

    I suggest that. Lord Sir Jonathan Sacks , Chief Rabbi of Great Britain should be the first rabbi that he regularly consult with to firm up all the meaning possible in the content that he is going to create and then final edit from his shooting script, before it is released

    Secondlly, he might also want to speak to me. Why? My own expertise as a Torah student is indeed both imagist and very scholarlarly. Added to this, is my expertise as a Managerial consulting economist in the real estate and community development industry turned entertainment industry economist and student of cinema

    Most importantly, I am also a dramatist/ screenwriter., I who will hopefully soon fund and Co-Executive Produce a modern era set of 5 Biblical tales and graphic non fiction novels on the lives and times of FDR, Harry Truman. David Ben-Gurion, Menachem Begin and Winston Churchill, from 1893 to 1953. .See My Linked in, Twitter, Facebook, and Skype Profiles for further information on me..

    Happy Chanuka & Be weli
