What a day!

Great stuff!

The Book of Judges will be made for approximately $5 million (mostly camel rental – ha!  Just kidding, it’s an awesome story.  One of the best books of the Old Testament!)

As for The Book of Habakkuk (we call it ‘Haba’ in production meetings), I’m fairly certain $300 million is the biggest movie budget in the history of motion pictures.  Others may have cost more to produce (i.e., Avatar, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, etc.) but none have announced their budget at the BEGINNING as $300 million.  Just imagine where this one will end up (kidding again, Khan Manka, Jr.!).

And it will all be on the screen.

You may ask why we’re taking such a huge risk.

To us, this is a much safer bet than something like Tae Kwon Doug which cost only $45 million to produce but will barely make back $1,500 if it’s lucky.

We just know in our gut that there’s a lot of money in this God stuff.

A lot.

So we’re willing to roll the dice.

And if all works out – there are plenty more books of the Old and New Testaments to keep this machine running!

Check back here over the next few months for updates on casting, locations and, in general, how everything is moving along.

    Sounds like the ctreiria for the casting department is banking on name brand, sex appeal, popular actor in a cable series first, followed immediately by who they can get to come on board as a result of said choice, concluded by the quickest, plot-thin, special effects laden blockbuster they can throw together with Nolan sitting atop the heap. I think expectations alone are going to weigh heavily against this reboot. I think they are going to have to pull a rabbit out of a hat or actually think of a way to further the franchise while building on what has already been done across many, many mediums otherwise DC Comics is going to have another bomb on their hands. They just can’t seem to get anywhere near the successful line-up Marvel has and it is painfully obvious they are enlisting the wrong creative team(s) to stand a fighting chance.I for one am less interested in who they cast as what they do with the suit. Pretty only goes so far and cardboard is, well, cardboard.rory dean recently posted..
