Hollywood's new zest for faith-based filmmaking will have to march on without Steven Spielberg.
The Oscar-winning director was circling a Moses-themed project but has bowed out according to Deadline.com.
Steven Spielberg has ended his long flirtation with directing Gods And Kings, the epic-sized Warner Bros film about life of Moses based on the script by Michael Green and Stuart Hazeldine.
That doesn't mean the end for the project or other attempts to bringing Moses back to the big screen. Director Ridley Scott of Alien fame is considering another Moses feature film, the site reports.
The news comes on the heels of robust ratings for The History Channel's The Bible and the upcoming Noah from acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan).
