This September sees a blockbuster reimagining of one of cinema’s greatest interpretations of a story from bible times – BEN-HUR.  The big screen treatment of the story of a Jewish prince who is pitted against his one time Roman friend in the arena in Rome was a smash hit in 1959 for director William Wyler and stars Charlton Heston and Jack Hawkins.  The story has now been given a new lease of life by Paramount featuring Jack Huston and Morgan Freeman and, going by the latest trailer, looks set to give the original an epic run for its money.
