One of the all-time classic films, Ben-Hur, is being remade by MGM and will feature Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston in the title role as Judah Ben-Hur. Joining him in the cast are Tony Kebbell, Ayelet Zurer and Morgan Freeman. The video below is a featurette for the film that lays out the story of the betrayal and revenge. But the film has huge shoes to fill as the original is beloved by many not only for the acting and story, but for the incredible chariot race scenes.
Ben-Hur is scheduled to be in theaters August 19th.
