As someone already experienced in action-packed tales of long-haired sons of gods, Tom Hiddleston is reportedly the frontrunner to be the star of the latest Ben-Hur remake. According to Deadline, Paramount and MGM are courting the Marvel villain to be the new Charlton Heston as Judah Ben-Hur, the betrayed Jewish prince and merchant whose story runs parallel to Christ's in the tale. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter director Timur Bekmambetov is already attached to make the film his latest contribution to the historical fiction genre. Go ahead and throw out your dumb old copy of the 11 Academy Award-winning 1959 version. This one's going to have a CGI chariot.
