A few months ago, I ran into my friend Ben Arment at the 99% conference. I said to him, “I wish someone would do a really high quality movie about the life of David. It’s an unbelievable story, and I’m waiting for someone to tell it in a film with unbelievable creativity.” I don’t know if those were my exact words, because I write better than I talk. I probably said, “Me want David movie. Would be so awesome. Yeah!” But that was the gist of our conversation.
Ben laughed and then said, “Are you kidding me? That’s the project I’m working on right now.” It turns out that Ben and Santino Stoner from Nooma, are producing a movie about David & Goliath. And they’re doing it in an incredibly creative way with the goal of having one thousand premieres. Visit the site to learn more.
But the question I have for you is pretty simple:
What story in the Bible would you like to see told in film?
I think the story of David will make a phenomenal film. What’s another story or a parable or even a verse that you think begs to be shared via the medium of film?
