The Book of Judges is the bomb. I tell you it's an action movie franchise extravaganzaramathon waiting to happen! I know I've mentioned before my killer screenplay treatment, which I've been working on (JUDGES XII: Samson Goes Bananas). That's my whole 'hook' - start with the big headliner everyone already knows about, Samson, then use the massive profits from that blockbuster smash to reboot the franchise all the way back, prequel-style - and tell it from JUDGE ONE. That's a guaranteed Hollywood plan for box office legs and storytelling excellence! And finally - for once - we'd have a major big-budget special effects laden action franchise that tells the truth about the Jews' struggle. I think this concept can succeed on all cylinders. Literally every cylinder.
Because really, a lot of people don't realize that Judges is way more than just Samson and his freaky superstrength hairdo. He was perhaps top dog in a long line of asskickers, but all of the Judges were very much cut from the same cloth. Back in the day, one sufficiently-righteous Jew armed with the jawbone of an ass was a force to be reckoned with!
What the Philistines really needed to do to lock that area down, they should have instituted strict Jawbone-Of-An-Ass Control laws. Like, a 40 day 40 night waiting period or something.
