The Bible - Re-Cut Planned for Theatrical Release

From a Mini Series to a Theatrical Movie

The mini series The Bible has 5 parts and was one of the biggest successes on American Cable TV. The History Channel could attract up to 12 million viewers each week. And now, the series is supposed to be made into a theatrical film as executive producer Mark Burnett mentioned during a press convention.

The epic covers material from the creation to the revelation and has a total duration of 10 hours. It won't be an easy task to re-cut it into a film for cinemas that has a planned runtime of 3 hours. Burnett doesn't have a distributor yet, but many companies already showed interest in bringing the new version into cinemas worldwide.

Quite possible that Burnett has the enormous success of The Passion of the Christ in his mind when he thinks about his project. In 2004, Mel Gibson's religious drama managed to gain $370 million in the US alone.
