Hollywood, which has been on a bona fide Biblical kick with “Noah,” “Son of God,” and “Mary, Mother of Christ,” to name a few, has a new star in its sights: King David.

According to Variety, Warner Bros. is starting to develop a movie based on the life of the warrior-poet-king, teaming up with a duo of producers from Gulfstream Pictures for the as-yet-untitled project.

The film will be based on the book “David: The Divided Heart” by Rabbi David Wolpe.

Variety notes that this is actually the second David-centric film currently being made in Tinseltown; Fox, Chernin Entertainment and Ridley Scott are together working on their own film about the character of King David following his epic battle with Goliath.

The box office appeal of the Bible appears to have no bounds; this December, Christian Bale will star in “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” a special effects dazzler that promises to bring the Passover story to life.
