Sci-Fi Samson

samson_and_delilahLooks like Hollywood are once again going back to the well and making another Samson and Delilah movie. Except this time, it’s Sci-Fi!

How Sci-Fi will this be? Samson wrestling with a cyborg lion? Alien Philistines? A love story between Samson and Delilah set in two time periods with only a mailbox as intermediary? Who knows? Let the wild speculation begin!

What other Bible stories could be made Sci-Fi? I’d be keen to hear what people think.

The biggest issue for me is not that they’re making Samson into a science fiction movie. It’s that once again the rest of Judges is neglected. When will I get my Ehud movie? When will this left handed assassin see silver screen justice?
