The Ten Commandments (TV miniseries-off Topic)

I had to report this news though it is off topic for this Blog....it comes from The Hollywood Reporter:

ABC and producer Robert Halmi Sr. have cast Dougray Scott, Omar Sharif, Naveen Andrews, Mia Maestro and Linus Roache in The Ten Commandments, a big-budget four-hour miniseries that retells the classic biblical tale of Moses, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Production on the Hallmark Entertainment special effects extravaganza, whose budget is estimated at more than $20 million, is slated to begin May 23 in Ouarzazate, Morocco. The premiere of the two-part epic, written by Ron Hutchinson after months of biblical and historical research, is targeted for next season.

Robert Dornhelm is directing the project, which will present the story of Moses and the Israelites' exodus from Egypt in 13th century B.C.

Scott will portray Moses while the Oscar-nominated Sharif (Lawrence of Arabia) is on board to play Jethro. Lost co-star Andrews will portray Menerith, Roache (The Chronicles of Riddick) will play Aaron, while Maestro (Alias) is set as Zipporah.

The Ten Commandments follows the dramatic story of Moses from his narrow escape from death as a child to his noble feat of freeing the Israelites to his great miracle of parting of the Red Sea.

I hope they do this well....You have to have balls to re create a movie that was done by Cecil B. DeMille which starred Charlten (go get the gun honey) Heston as Moses. Dougray, You'll have your hands full, expecially with a budget of only $20 Million Dollars .
