God in 3D

The Book Of Genesis is heading for the big screen, in 3D of course

Walden Media (the company behind the Narnia movies – which, of course, contain religious allegories) is teaming up with Paramount Pictures to bring us In The Beginning , a spectacular based on Genesis. That’s the one where God creates the world, then watches us humans ruin it all, gets in a hissy fit and drowns the planet. Oh, and he also invents Latin and Greek just to annoy us.

A script has been written by John Fusco ( Hidalgo ), and David (The Dark Is Rising) Cunningham. The budget, however, is reported to a decidedly non-epic £30 million. Dunno about 3D, but you'd be hard pressed to create a pop-up Bible on that amount these days.
