Dougray Lands Moses Role In Tv Ten Commandments

LATEST: Scottish actor DOUGRAY SCOTT will recreate CHARLTON HESTON's biblical MOSES in a TV miniseries remake of epic THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.

The ABC two-parter will also feature British actor NAVEEN ANDREWS, MIA MAESTRO and movie great OMAR SHARIFF.

Veteran TV movie producer ROBERT HALMI is the brains behind the ambitious remake.

He plans to use biblical texts and historical research to make the $20 million (GBP10.5 million) Moses story as authentic as possible.

Halmi says, "I felt that this is the first written document of law, morality and order for the human race, and we completely ignore it.

"I think it's time for the younger generation to revisit this biblical tale as they must realise the importance and consequences of the Ten Commandments."
