3-D Retelling of the Creation Story in the Works

Mike Fleming of Deadline.com breaks news that the biblical story of creation is getting the Hollywood treatment:

I’m told that Paramount Pictures and former Walden Media co-founder Cary Granat producing with Reel Fx are mounting In The Beginning, a 3-D telling of the creation story. The film is using The Book of Genesis as its primary resource. A script has been written by John Fusco (Hidalgo), and directing will be TV vet David Cunningham.

I’m told the 30 million dollar film will use 3-D visuals to transform the oft-told tale into a spectacle that the filmmakers hope will attract family- and faith-based audiences that flocked to The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, that first Chronicles of Narnia installment made on Granat’s Walden watch. I hear Granat pitched the film by claiming that the Adam And Eve story has never really been told by a feature film. (At least not since John Huston.)

    I think this is a great thing that Hollywood has in the process. The story of Creation has never been portrayed like this and I think it would be a great telling of what the majority of people on Earth believe. I am excited to see how this turns out. My only concern is that Hollywood should be careful about adding their own twists on the storyline. Hopefully it does not stray away from the truth.
