Yes, I know the title makes no sense seeing as how God denied Moses the Promised Land, but bear with me here.
Any article that mentions Moses, Moby Dick, and 300 is well worth a look. The skinny being:
Twentieth Century Fox will develop a retelling of the story of Moses, from his near death as an infant to his adoption into the Egyptian royal family, his defiance of the Pharaoh and deliverance of the Hebrews from enslavement…in a post-apocalyptic wasteland
Ok, I added that post-apocalyptic bit. Though the truth isn’t any more ridiculous.
The article also mentions that the same scripwriters attached to this Moses project also worked on a Moby Dick that “was pitched as a “300”-like reimagining of the Melville story as a visually stunning action piece, and the story of Moses is conceived similarly.”
I didn’t add anything to that quote by the way. Sometimes Hollywood makes me question my sanity….and not in the good way.
