Warner Brothers may found their director to lead the Biblical epic film “Gods and Kings.”

According to Deadline, the studio wanted Steven Spielberg on this project since last September. And now it’s possible he may sign by the end of the month.

“Gods and Kings” was described as a “Braveheart” version of the Moses story, as an insider described it to Deadline.

“[It’s about] him coming down the river, being adopted, leaving his home, forming an army, and getting the Ten Commandments,” explained the insider.

Despite high expectations from Warner Brothers on this film, the movie is not considered to be in 3D. The studio expects the production to start either in March or April next year.
