Spielberg in Talks for Moses Biopic

Steven Spielberg is in talks to direct a movie about the life of Moses.

The film, “Gods and Kings,” is based on a script by Michael Green and Stuart Hazeldine. According to reports, Spielberg has entered formal talks with Warner Bros. to be the film’s director.

Spielberg, 64, an Academy Award winner for “Schindler’s List” and other films, also is known for his involvement in Jewish causes, particularly through his work with the Shoah Foundation, which collects video testimonials from Holocaust survivors. Spielberg reportedly also had a hand in the decision to produce “The Prince of Egypt,” a 1998 animated film loosely based on the Book of Exodus.
