Paramount and Reel Fx have announced plans to make In The Beginning, a 3D telling of the creation story.

Hidalgo writer John Fusco has penned a screenplay for the Book Of Genesis-based project, which David Cunningham (The Path To 9/11) is attached to direct.

Cary Granat will produce the $30 million project, aiming to catch the faith-based audiences that made The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe and Mel Gibson's The Passion Of The Christ big box office hits, reports Deadline Hollywood.

The stories of Adam and Eve, Noah and the Flood and Abraham and Isaac were previously told by John Huston in 1966's The Bible: In The Beginning.
