The Ten CommandmentsIs it possible to remake the Bible? Cecil B. DeMille fashioned his own version of 'The Ten Commandments' in 1956, featuring Charlton Heston as Moses, rejecting the advances of a princess and parting the Red Sea. Heston wasn't the last actor to portray Moses on screen, but he set the standard by which all others are judged. Two new films starring Moses are now in the works, according to Vulture, which breaks down the credits of the screenwriters involved, ranging from 'Heroes' to 'The Green Lantern' to 'Moby Dick' to 'Marco Polo.' When dueling projects such as this arise, very often only one survives, so we'll have to wait and see whose vision moves forward. Still, the big question is: Who could play Moses?

Heston was 32 years old when he played the part, so his modern counterpart could, theoretically, be in that same age range, though it depends on the story. In the Bible, Moses spends many years in the wilderness before emerging as an old man to deliver the Israelites out of Egyptian slavery. Whoever is chosen, it will have to be someone who is believable as a devout spiritual man -- and looks good in sandals. We have five actors in mind.
