Morgan Freeman Joins "Ben-Hur" Remake

Posted: September 13th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Morgan Freeman Joins "Ben-Hur" RemakeSubmit Comment
It was recently reported that Morgan Freeman joined the cast of the upcoming "Ted" sequel. And now comes word that he's also the first actor to sign on for the upcoming "Ben-Hur" remake.

We recently heard that Tom Hiddleston, who played Loki in "The Avengers," is being considered for the lead role. It's not clear if he will take the part. Freeman will play the role of Ildaran, the man who teaches the slave Ben-Hur to become a champion chariot racer.

"Ben-Hur" will be directed by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanter) and is set to hit theaters on February 26th, 2016.

All that work to escape racism and poverty to become a success, only to let Hollywood turn him into a f*cking token Magical Negro meme.

The 1959 classic epic, Ben-Hur from director William Wyler is being remade ...by the guy who did Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

The directors last name gives a clue to how he persuaded Freeman to take the 'job'
*ahem*

He's probably just doing it because he enjoyed working with Timur on Wanter. It's not really that complicated.
