Tom Hiddleston in Talks for "Ben-Hur" Remake

Posted: August 13th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Tom Hiddleston in Talks for "Ben-Hur" RemakeSubmit Comment
About two years ago, it was reported that MGM and Paramount Pictures were working on a remake of "Ben-Hur," which is based on the 1880 Lew Wallace novel that outsold every book (outside of the Bible) until it was eventually beaten by "Gone With the Wind."

It was then reported that "Wanted" helmer Timur Bekmambetov signed on direct from a script by Keith Clarke (The Way Back) and John Ridley (12 Years a Slave). The film also got a release date of February 26th, 2016.

Now comes word that the studios are in talks with Tom Hiddleston, who played Loki in "The Avengers," to take the lead role. The plan is to take more elements from the book than the original film did by focusing more on the storyline involving Jesus Christ.

All the character should be CGI urban street-tough cats. Call it Ben Fur.

No, but seriously, no one ordered more Jesus crap. Besides, they made Gladiator and what was that but a Ben Hur remake?

Maybe they can film Kim Kardashian filled to the gills with helium and set up in the stratosphere and remake "Around the World in 80 days". She can play the person AND the balloon.
