I like biblical epics as much as the next biblical epic loving guy, but I thought the genre had come and gone, save a few recent takes like The Last Temptation of Christ, The Nativity, and The Passion, which I turned off during the flogging/little claws ripping flesh scene.
So now we have yet another Jesus movie (Son of God), a great flood movie with Russel Crowe as Noah (but can they out-flood 2012? :D), and I just read that they’re doing Moses again (Exodus) with Christian Bale as Moses and Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman) as Joshua.
Is there a particular reason for this? coincidence? keeping up with the Joneses (esp. Noah vs. Exodus)?
