Not The Father's Moses

Plans are in the works for Steven Spielberg to produce a remake of The Ten Commandments. However, Spielberg's Moses will hardly resemble the Biblical portrayal of Moses. Spielberg's Moses will be predominantly a war-like figure, instead of the humble leader the Bible tells us he was. See here.

Moses is not the only Old Testament figure that is going to receive the modern Hollywood treatment. Russell Crowe has signed on to play the role of Noah. Rumor has it that the those producing the film are less interested in the religious significance of Noah's story than as portraying Moses as the first environmentalist. So, there you have it folks. We have Hollywood appropriating a historical figure from the one true religion to serve environmentalism, just one of the many religious alternatives to the Gospel.
