Roma Downey: ‘We Get to Know Jesus’ in New ‘Ben-Hur’

This is not you grandfather’s "Ben-Hur."

That’s the message from Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, the producers of “Ben-Hur,” a new version of the 1959 film classic. Both movies are based on the 1880 novel by Lew Wallace.

“It was a great movie in ’59,” Burnett told CNSNews.com in a recent interview, “and it’s about time to update 55 years later. We reimagined changes from the original film where instead of a movie about revenge this movie is about reconciliation and forgiveness - and it still has a huge chariot race scene and a sea battle scene. So it provides all the values that theatergoers are expecting. In it Judah Ben-Hur encounters Jesus, and those encounters give him the understanding to forgive and teach him how to reconcile rather than seek revenge.”

Oh, for goodness sake. Trouble is, they are running out of ideas for new movies. They just get goofy. They should take some of the classics, get them spiffed up, digitally, and just re-release them. 

I think any biblical epic today is hardly worth seeing. I agree with your idea of cleaning up the film quality of an original movie and re-releasing it. If the movie never did have an original version, then don't bother doing it at all! I wouldn't miss it.
