Mark Burnett's popular miniseries "The Bible," which pulled in around 100 million U.S. viewers along its 10-episode stretch, is being recut into a movie. Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Burnett said, "We're cutting a movie version right now, a three-hour version of Jesus and [we have] many, many offers from theaters globally."
Thanks to its broad international appeal, "The Bible" has become the fastest-selling DVD miniseries of all time. Of its unprecedented success, Burnett said: "It's clearly a calling; clearly, we felt it was something we had to do, and too many things happened to explain it any other way. It's a juggernaut, and it's not going to slow down."
Although the film is not yet connected to a distributor, Burnett is aiming for a fall release.
