Morgan Freeman and John Huston Join BEN-HUR Remake

Morgan Freeman
John Huston
As previously reported, "The Bible" producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey are working on a "Ben-Hur" remake for MGM and Paramount which will be directed by Timur Bekmambetov ("Wanted"). The new version is said to be more faithful to Lew Wallace's novel than the 1959 classic, and more focused on the Biblical aspects of the story. Now, we have the first casting reports for this project. Morgan Freeman ("The Dark Knight") has signed on to star as Ildarin, the man who teaches the slave Ben-Hur to become a champion-caliber chariot racer. Also, John Huston ("Boardwalk Empire") is set to star as the titular Judah Ben-Hur. Production will begin in Europe early next year and the film is scheduled for release on February 26, 2016.

EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS Featurette Showcases Epic Production

exodus-gods-and-kings-featurette

The first behind-the-scenes featurette for Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings" has been released. The making of video offers a look at the production and it looks just as you would expect: epic. Of course, with Scott at the helm of a project like this, you won't get anything less than that. I just hope he can successfully tackle the religious aspects of the film. The film stars Christian Bale as Moses, the Old Testament prophet who rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton) and takes 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt. The cast also includes Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, Sigourney Weaver and John Turturro.

"Exodus: Gods and Kings" opens in theaters on December 5th.

The first images for Angelina Jolie's drama "By the Sea" have been released via Entertainment Weekly. Jolie has taken the role of writer, producer and director for this project in which she also stars alongside real-life spouse Brad Pitt. The film's story takes place in 1970s France and it focuses on Vanessa (Jolie), a former dancer, and her husband Roland (Pitt), an American writer, who travel the country together as their marriage is falling apart. The cast also features Mélanie Laurent, Niels Arestrup and Richard Bohringer. The film is currently filming in Malta and will be released sometime in 2015.

In an interview for EW, Jolie spoke about the film:
"I chose to set By the Sea in the 1970s, not only because it is a colorful and alluring era, but because it removes many of the distractions of contemporary life and allows the focus to remain squarely on the emotions that the characters experience in their journey."
