WB gains rights to ‘Bible’

Warner Bros. has acquired the film rights to Michael Drosnin’s nonfiction book “The Bible Code,” which details an Israeli mathematician’s decoding of a series of messages and predictions hidden in the Bible.

Drosnin, who also wrote the book “Citizen Hughes,” appeared on CNN, “Today” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on Thursday to talk about the book. On CNN, he debated the book’s merits with another scholar. The book claims that the messages appear to accurately predict many significant events. The book claims that in some cases, predictions were decoded before the events occurred and later were found to be correct. Among the author’s claims: the prediction of the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzak Rabin.

The studio’s production presidents, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Bill Gerber, said that the work “addresses the age-old questions of our purpose on Earth, the meaning of the Bible, and our uniqueness in the universe — all issues that have stimulated the imagination for thousands of years.”

Warners has announced no plans for adapting the work.
