Maybe it's a belated reaction to the Mayan "apocalypse," but there seems to be a renewed interest in biblical epics, as there are now two Moses projects in the works in Hollywood.

The first, "Exodus," will be helmed by "Alien" director Ridley Scott, and the other, entitled "Gods and Kings," was lined up to be directed by Steven Spielberg.
