Sony Dates Legendary’s Jeymes Samuel Biblical Time Set Feature ‘The Book Of Clarence’

Sony has just dated Legendary’s Jeymes Samuel’s Biblical-time set feature The Book of Clarence for Sept. 22 this year.

Inspired by classic Hollywood epics set in biblical times, The Book of Clarence tells the tale of “Clarence,” a down on his luck denizen of Jerusalem embarking on a misguided attempt to capitalize on the rise of celebrity and influence of the Messiah for his own personal gain – a journey that leads him on an exploration of the idea of faith and to a highly unexpected path of his own. We hear the movie isn’t a faith-based one.
