Glenn Beck Developing History and Faith-Based Movies

Conservative radio host Glenn Beck is developing three theatrical movies, including two with historical themes and one that is "faith-based," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"I have every intent of finding great artists who will tell great stories that aren't typical," Beck told the Reporter.

The movies will be produced in Texas through the film division of Mercury Radio Arts, the parent company of his radio show and website TheBlaze.com.

The Reporter says that one film will be based on ancient history and another on modern history. The third will have a religious theme.

Beck has also paid Sony to get the movie rights back to his 2008 book, "The Christmas Sweater," which he plans to develop for theaters or television.

Beck has been critical of Hollywood, and recently slammed the Russell Crowe Biblical flick, "Noah" as a "Babylonian chainsaw massacre."

"Hollywood is missing this moment to reconnect with the American people because they don't speak the language," he told The Reporter.

Beck — who appears on the nationally syndicated "Glenn Beck Radio Program" and formerly hosted television talk shows on HLN and Fox News Channel — is considered one of the leading voices in conservative media.
