We've already seen Ron Howard and Tom Hanks tackle The Da Vinci Code, which contained adventures of literally Biblical proportions, but today Relativity Media announced via press release that they have picked up the rights for an adaptation of Michael Drosnin's future predicting book The Bible Code. The first book spawned a series which is The series is based on a 3000 year-old code in the Bible found by a top Israeli scientist and confirmed by a senior code breaker at the US National Security Agency. It reveals momentous historical events, and predicts the future, but probably doesn't know who will be Zack Snyder's Superman.
Still, apparently the code in question has successfully predicted world events such as the election of President Barack Obama, the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, and the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. In addition, it also spawned two addition books, Bible Code II: The Countdown and Bible Code III: Saving the World. Relativity is developing an adaptation of all the books for a tentpole release in 2012. Adding to the weight of this supposedly accurate code, writer Michael Drosnin is a former reporter for the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, who asserts that the code is real and continues to be correct. If this book series can save the world, then why not release them all at once. Someone's being a real dick. Any Bible Code fans excited?
