‘The Bible’ Miniseries Being Prepped for Theatrical Release



The widely popular miniseries, The Bible is about to hit the big screen.

Producer Mark Burnett announced this week that the epic miniseries The Bible is being re-cut into a three-hour edition for theatrical release.

Although he does not have a distribution agreement yet, he does have several offers on the table to get the edited version in theaters world-wide.

“We’re in the position where it’s just a matter of choosing” the right venue and situation, Burnett emphasized. “We could put it into arenas. There are a lot of possible choices we could go with.”

Burnett also revealed that The Bible was viewed by 100 million people in the United States alone  and tens of millions more internationally.

“All of those people who rolled their eyes three years ago and said nobody’s going to watch The Bible on TV, well, they were wrong,” he said. “But I wasn’t surprised. I knew it would work like it did.” How did he know? “God,” Burnett replied. “It was God’s voice. Too many things happened to see it any other way.”

The Bible miniseries aired on The History Channel in  five installments, each being two-hours each.
