A new film about the tale of Samson and Delilah from the biblical Book of Judges is scheduled to go into production next summer on location in Israel and Morocco, Deadline reported.

“Samson and Delilah” — like its 1949 Cecil B. DeMille Oscar-winning predecessor of the same name — is based on the 1930 novel Judge and Fool by Russian Jewish revisionist Zionist leader Vladimir Jabotinsky, the ideological father of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party.

Casting for “Samson and Delilah” is currently underway, with various significant names circulating for possible lead roles, according to Deadline.
