Taylor Lautner and The Rock could take on the roles of David and Goliath
Posted by: Zack Bruce
Scott Derrickson (THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE) has been set to direct a re-telling of the Bible story, “David and Goliath” for a film simply titled, GOLIATH.
The story is one that most of you are familiar with, whether you attended a Sunday school meeting or not. The tale of brain versus brawn centers on two central characters: a giant named Goliath and a young man named David. Goliath was revered throughout Israel for threatening and fighting the Israelites. David, tired of seeing his people in constant fear steps up to the giant and challenges him. Goliath equipped with several large weapons taunts David in a final battle. Though he is much smaller than Goliath, David wins out using his intelligence and a rather handy rock sling.
Rumor has it that Relativity Media is looking to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Taylor Lautner for the principal roles. Currently there are talks with Johnson and an offer has been extended to Lautner. But will the two offer a good match of sparring partners? I guess we will find out soon enough.
