Steven Spielberg - Steven Spielberg In Talks To Direct Moses Movie

Steven Spielberg is in talks to direct new religious movie 'Gods and Kings'.

The legendary filmmaker has reportedly opened negotiations with Warner Bros. to helm the movie, which follows the Biblical story of Moses from the Old Testament.

The script - which has been written by Michael Green and Stuart Hazeldine - charts the prophet's life from birth to death and focuses on his quest to free the Jewish people from the oppression of the Egyptian civilisation and will include the key moments of his mission, including the parting of the Red Sea to lead the Israelites to the promised land and receiving the Ten Commandments from God.

Dan Lim and Matti Leshem are currently in place to produce, but the 64-year-old Jewish director is expected to bring in his own crew to work on the project.

It will not be the first time Moses' incredible story and the tale of the Exodus has been brought to life on the big screen.

Charlton Heston famously portrayed the religious leader in the 1956 film 'The Ten Commandments', while Sir Ben Kingsley played him in the 1995 movie 'Moses'.
