Exodus Flicks on the Way

May we suggest a couple of tunes?

Print Email
(Len Small/Tablet Magazine)

Vulture reports that Hollywood is producing two movies about the Exodus (and not the Bob Marley album). At Warner Brothers, a couple of cult sci-fi screenwriters wrote the script to a film co-produced by Friend-of-Tablet-Magazine Matti Leshem. And at 20th Century Fox, there is something in the pipeline called Untitled Moses Project, which is also the name of a 1980s Milwaukee hardcore band (I’m kidding, I think).

In case you weren’t sure where I was going with this, the Vulture post is entitled, “Everything’s Coming Up Moses”—which was also the name of the Rachel Shukert-authored Passover pageant that Tablet Magazine produced this past spring. Perhaps one of the Hollywood big shots would consider the inclusion of the title track in their film?

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
