Taking on a Steven Soderbergh or Woody Allen-esque workload, Steven Spielberg -- who dropped two movies in 2011 with "War Horse" and "The Adventures Of Tintin" -- shows no sign of slowing down. He's already deep into his next film, the long developing dream project "Lincoln" which he'll deliver at the end year and after that, he'll shift gears and jump right into "Robopocalypse" which already has a big summer tentpole date of July 3, 2013 penciled in. But it looks like he won't have a moment to slow down.

PHOTO Steven Spielberg Reportedly Enters Talks To Direct Moses Movie 'Gods And Kings'

Taking on a Steven Soderbergh or Woody Allen-esque workload, Steven Spielberg -- who dropped two movies in 2011 with "War Horse" and "The Adventures Of Tintin" -- shows no sign of slowing down. He's already deep into his next film, the long developing dream project "Lincoln" which he'll deliver at the end of the year and after that, he'll shift gears and jump right into "Robopocalypse" which already has a big summer tentpole date of July 3, 2013 penciled in. But it looks like he won't have a moment to slow down.

Brewing for much the fall, Steven Spielberg has been circling the Warner Bros. Moses movie with the working title "Gods And Kings." Last we heard, talks had just started but Deadline reports that Spielberg is moments away from signing on the dotted line to direct. Penned by Michael Green and Stuart Hazeldine (the former was a co-writer on "Green Lantern" along with creating "The River" for Spielberg on ABC; and the latter is behind the stalled WB flick "Paradise Lost") the movie is described as a "Braveheart" style telling of the story of Moses from birth to death. But if that point of comparison isn't enough for you, the site's source also ranks "Saving Private Ryan" as a touchstone, saying that Spielberg wants to go for gritty realism over Charlton Heston style pomp and circumstance. So yes, the guy who saw the burning bush, delivered the ten commandments and parted the Red Sea among other things is gonna be getting a whole new kind of treatment.

Should everything come together, Spielberg would get to this pretty much when he's finished with "Robopocalypse," sometime in the spring of 2013, with March or April as possible start dates. Bible studies will never be the same. Now the next question: who's gonna be Moses?
