David and Goliath Story Turned Into Movie With '300' and 'Bourne' Style


Titled 'Goliath', the project from Relativity Media will have 'The Exorcism of Emily Rose' helmer Scott Derrickson serving behind the lens.

Relativity Media is planning to turn biblical story, David versus Goliath, into a movie under the title "Goliath". The studio and producers apparently will give a dark touch to the film as The Hollywood Reporter says they "give it a modern vibe that harkens to the spirit of films such as '300' and 'The Bourne Identity'."

According to the site, "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" director Scott Derrickson has been hired to serve as a helmer for "Goliath". He last directed 2008 "The Day the Earth Stood Still" starring Keanu Reeves, and is attached to direct sci-fi family movie "The Substitute".

The upcoming movie, which is said to be a period action movie made with contemporary sensibilities, has a script written by John D. Payne and Patrick McKay. Ryan Kavanaugh, Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen are on board to produce it.

The story is set around the time when "fierce warrior Goliath is sent to track down a foretold king of the Israelites. A young shepherd David is thrust into an epic chase and adventure fighting for his own life, the lives of his loved ones and eventually the lives of his people." The ultimate point in the story is none other than a battle of literal Biblical proportions between the young man and the giant sent to destroy him.
