- GODS AND KINGS
Warner Bros. reportedly wants Oscar winner Steven Spielberg to direct their biblical epic Gods and Kings, which recounts the Old Testament story of Moses.
"There haven't been formal meetings yet, but Spielberg has read the script by Michael Green and Stuart Hazeldine," according to Deadline. "Getting Spielberg is a long shot on any film because his deal is complex, his dance card is always full, and Warner Bros would have to be willing to share the picture with DreamWorks. Still, I've heard there will be a discussion."
Co-screenwriter Michael Green is also the creator of the upcoming Spielberg-produced ABC series The River.
Spielberg's next pic, Lincoln, starts filming before year's end.
