Hit TV mini-series The Bible is to be revamped as a movie. The 10-part series broke network records when it aired on America's History Channel earlier this year (13), and now executive producer Mark Burnett has revealed he's planning a three-hour blockbuster based on the Resurrection of Christ, which was a large part of the TV project. He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "We're cutting a movie version right now, a three-hour version of Jesus and (we have) many, many offers from theatres globally." The Bible was a huge ratings success, and has broken the record for fastest-selling mini-series on DVD of all time.
