Despite its critical mauling, Suicide Squad is expected to top the box office for a third weekend in a row. But it's more a case of how poor War Dogs, Ben-Hur, and Kubo And The Two Strings have performed than its own popularity.

Ben-Hur Just Cast This Dude To Play Jesus Ben-Hur Just Cast This Dude To Play Jesus
Ben-Hur is an epic of biblical proportions, so naturally it has a cast of biblical figures to round out the cast. Among them is Jesus Christ himself, a role that has been played by actors far and wide with varying degrees of gravitas. With the new remake moving along, the role has once again been filled.

Tom Hiddleston Is The Top Choice For The Ben-Hur Remake Tom Hiddleston Is The Top Choice For The Ben-Hur Remake
The chariots are calling Loki, and the Avengers villain just might answer. MGM is digging deep into its back catalog to resurrect Ben-Hur for a new audience, under the stewardship of director Timur Bekmambetov. It stands to reason that the part would be one of the most highly in-demand in Hollywood, and MGM surely could have gone with a big name, or a fresh face. Instead, they might be splitting the difference, eying a man familiar to most audiences, but still as-yet-untested in a lead role.

Adapting hit books into movies is nothing new, and neither is remaking hit movies themselves-- both have been going on since the very, very beginning of the film industry. But it's rare to see something adapted, recycled and remade as often as Ben-Hur, which started as a huge bestselling book published in 1880 and has been adapted as two silent films, one sound one (the big one starring Charlton Heston)

Ben-Hur Is Getting A Remake Ben-Hur Is Getting A Remake
The studio has purchased a spec script by Keith Clarke (Peter Weir's The Way Back), which goes back to the 1880 Lew Wallace novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale Of The Christ, for the story instead of the most famous adaptation. MGM actually released the original, but since lost the rights. The book, however, is in the public domain, which means they don't have to pay to use it. The new version is said to be "much different" than Wyler's film, though no specific details are given.
