Universal Studios has announced that Mel Brooks has been hired to write and direct the Biopic of God.

Brooks said in a press release “The Movie will be an epic, because I will play God. After all who else is old enough? It’s going to be done through the eyes of God’s interviewer, who will be played by Carl (Reiner). We will find out if the Earth was really created in six days, or did God take that rumored vacation to The Fontainebleau in Miami Beach after the fifth day. We will see God advising Noah about building an Ark, ‘No, No use the good glue. That crazy stuff.’ We will see God dancing at Jesus’s Bar Mitzvah. “

The original thoughts of Producer Verner Brothers was to have Mel Gibson write and direct the film. The famous “hands off” approach of the Hollywood Mogul, at first appeared to have backfired. The highly successful, yet controversial Brothers left the task to his Associate Producer, who mistakenly hired Brooks.

When reached for comment, Gibson said, “We had an oral contract. This is clearly not the Mel that he wanted. My Lawyers are meeting with Mr. Brothers’ Lawyers to review the situation, and to check if there is any way that we can correct this egregious error. I was expecting to make piece full of floods, famine, war and pestilence, then I see the script. He’s got God dancing something called the Hora at a Jewish wedding. Everyone knows that the Jews had nothing to do with God.

When reached for comment, Brooks said, “I’m not too worried. I’m the only one old enough to have known God as a boy. I spoke to him, and this is what he wants.”

Universal, last week announced the rest of the prospective cast. Sid Caesar as Methuselah, Gene Wilder as Noah, Nathan Lane as Onan, Mathew Broderick as Jesus and featuring Cloris Leachman as God’s sister, “Auntie Christ.”
