Hollywood is making yet another adaptation of Lew Wallace's 1880 novel Ben-Hur. Seemingly attempting to cash in on the recent faith-based film revival (see: Heaven Is For Real, Noah), the latest version of Ben-Hur is set for a 2016 release with Mark Burnett and Roma Downey as producers.

Burnett and Downey scored a huge hit with the miniseries The Bible, and followed it up with the movie Son of God, so it makes sense they would go after Ben-Hur next.
