History’s ‘The Bible’ Headed to Theaters, Plus Sequel Series?

History The Bible Movie Sequel

Though History’s epic miniseries ‘The Bible‘ proved at times controversial, particularly during an incident in which its portrayal of Satan had a striking resemblance to US President Barack Obama, the conclusive miniseries has continued to break ratings records for the channel. Now, series producer Mark Burnett has revealed plans to potentially market a theatrical version, and a potential sequel series, so how much more of ‘The Bible’ can we expect?

History’s ‘The Bible’ might well have offered up a complete adaptation of its namesake, but the network may soon return to the well. Via The Hollywood Reporter, we’ve learned that executive producer Mark Burnett has been putting together a film version with focus on the Resurrection, and intent to distribute this fall. “We’re cutting a movie version right now, a three-hour version of Jesus and [we have] many, many offers from theaters globally,” said Burnett.

Perhaps even more than that, Burnett revealed that development on future ‘The Bible’ stories “never actually stopped, but I do have scripts in my bag that I just received today for what’s next.” Burnett claimed additional stories would take place “in the same world. We feel there is a void, and we’re filling that void.”

Not only did ‘The Bible’ debut to some 13.1 million viewers, but since its release the dramatic adaptation has become the fastest-selling DVD miniseries in history.

What say you? Should History continue on with additional stories from ‘The Bible’? Would audiences tune in for a theatrical version?
