Scott Derrickson Directing Goliath

Scott Derrickson, director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose and the remake of The Day Earth Stood Still has signed on to direct the story of Goliath. Goliath will be a period film, telling the biblical story of David vs Goliath. While it will be set in Biblical times the filmmakers are going for a 300 and Bourne Identity vibe.

For those not familiar with the story of David vs Goliath, the massive Goliath is sent to find and eliminate the prophesied king of the Israelites, a young shepherd named David. A chase ensures, not just endangering David’s life but the lives of his family and people. There is an epic battle between David and Goliath, making this the ultimate underdog story.

I don’t want to sound pessimistic but I don’t have much hope for this film. I’m sure it will be in 3D.  Does anyone have any interest in seeing this film? And if you do, why?
