Is an all time classic directed by the legendary Cecil B.
DeMille and start Charlton Heston as Moses.
What we're really epitomizes the biblical epic and is as fresh today I think anyway as it was when it was first released in 1956 but now.
A remake may be in the works Warner Bros.
reportedly watched Stephen Spielberg.
To bring the gritty realism of Saving Private Ryan.
To another remake of this -- -- effectively remake though classic like this.
Even with Spielberg media and entertainment analyst Peter -- is here -- -- how do you think Peter remake ten commandments are you for -- get -- Remake is the eleventh commandment in the movie business remake we may agreement we may consider go to the well.
And you find the biggest of them all and that's the thing commandments and of course these will be the mail and Spielberg you face these will be -- now know in the Bible is a rich.
Fabric -- -- it's got it's got testament value emotional value sex and violence get away with it when -- wrapped in religion.
So be a whole concept is rich or remake and I think Spielberg.
Is the kind of guy that they get it may.
Really our -- -- but I think it's Spielberg.
I mean Spielberg does have different dimensions he can do -- Saving Private Ryan which is as gritty as you can get.
He can also do -- fantasy you know about bid ET EDT right -- -- that -- Saudi.
He can -- a lot of different things and a lot of different formats.
But it it has been done it's out there we have the ten commandments we have -- seven we have even Blu-ray versions of -- -- Do we really need another -- we have this -- out there.
Well that's probably true but you know new audiences want their own stars their -- filmmaker is there one written in -- I don't really hillbilly in 3-D ultimately -- -- have 3-D well maybe that they've that I had maybe a little real trick is remember.
He's aiming for a sweet spot faith based films.
And Bible films are rich -- local Chris -- the hoisted 600 a little million dollars.
And that's you're talking about big audience faith based on the been very successful in the market place the last few years he may be going for the super sweet spot.
And on a global -- You may be right by the way Lord of the Rings even though -- it's a fictional world they don't mentioned Christ or -- anything from the Bible.
That was also religions are the token a guy wrote the book is a very religious you patterned it after the Christian religion.
So you may be right -- -- his reports the but I think of some things like Psycho for example a remake of Psycho.
Or the remake of Cape Fear didn't do as well as the original -- does have a great history does it.
Well -- you always trying to find a way to give it something old and something goes some certainty.
That the narrative works and some variety something has some unique way.
You remember that film was made of fifty years ago -- the technology is completely different the pacing -- can be given the performance is different.
Spielberg is a master at that big sweeping canvas and remember CNN's sandals films travel unbelievably well the rest of the world unbelievably well.
That's sands of -- that eliminate -- does that dog in the United States -- made hundreds of millions of dollars overseas and no this is very very unique.
By the way for those this is sort of patting your argument a little bit but the wizard of laws I was surprised here that The Wizard of -- was a remake right.
Yes it was but you don't remakes come about because bids as an audience everything is twelve yes who want their own stock to want their own.
-- of recognition in the film one of the things that Spielberg -- He's a force of nature you walk into the offices Gilbert says he wants to do it that don't have the magic mile momentum to get made with -- is getting -- -- be adjusting who's gonna -- Moses.
Is it gonna have long here is they gotta go -- Saving Private Ryan or is it gonna do it like a biblical -- That's going to be -- issue and in Hollywood where there is magic there is money.
Those two things go together in Hollywood right.
So much so and Spielberg usually spells money with a capital M if you look at -- -- Globally they are a brand they are true brand and I think the fact that he makes this film and he tries to hit that sweet spot between.
Faith based and Bible that unique space space that allow both them to work.
Can be a giant money make a good at catching -- -- -- as a song at the end of the realm.
By the -- this may be able obscure but the girl what did the dragon tattoo oh I love those original Swedish versions of that it was a it was a trilogy there were three films.
Is is this new version new remake gonna do -- Mean -- dragon that's -- absolutely it's a phenomena it's a great success it'll do a lot and will be two more.
The real issue is if you look at the Swedish film which -- much darker and darker and of course the language was different whole language in the -- examiner of the film with different but this film is a big success Peter go over great to see -- Peter thanks for coming in appreciate it.
