Way before David Letterman's top 10 on the late show or MTV gave us a top 10 countdown on TRL God gave us the Ten Commandments.
Obviously Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments is the most famous film version, but it has been announced in Variety that David Wain (director of Wet Hot American Summer) is directing a parody of The Ten Commandments called The Ten.
The Ten will star Paul Rudd, Jessica Alba, Amanda Peet, Justin Theroux, Adam Brody (The OC), and Ken Marino.
I'm very curious of how they will do a parady of this film...especially with this cast...it sounds horrible.
Far funnier is this You Tube video which parody's Cecil B. DeMille movie with the concept of "10 Things I Hate About You" This fake preview is for "10 Things I Hate About the Commandments"
For a better perspective on the 10 Commandments then The Ten or this fake movie preview I recommend Covenant and Commandment: A Study of the Ten Commandments in the Context of Grace by C.W. Christian. This is a book we read together at church which I think has wonderfully powerful teaching.
I wonder if there's going to be a slew of old testement themed movies to include Evan Almighty.
