Ridley Scott going back to the Bible again

On the same day that the first trailer for his Moses movie Exodus: Gods and Kings, starring Christian Bale was released, director Ridley Scott has announced another Biblical epic.

Scott, Exodus producer Peter Chernin, and 20th Century Fox are working together for a movie about David, the boy who fought Goliath and grew up to be the legendary king of Israel.

Jonathan W Stokes, who penned the script for the Benedict Cumberbatch project Blood Mountain, is writing a screenplay that will focus on David’s reign as king, following his early battle with the giant Philistine.

Ridley Scott may direct and produce the film, depending on his work schedule. If it comes to it, he will leave the direction to someone else.
