Ben-Hur Director: “Our Movie Is Different”

timur

Jason Rothenberg from The Hollywood Reporter sat down with Ben Hur director Timur Bekmambetov. Bekmambetov is known for being the filmmaker behind Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and the upcoming film Ben Hur, one would not expect him to live in the former home of Walt Disney. After all, he made his big break from Night Watch, a R-rated horror fantasy that became Russia’s highest grossing film in 2004. Walking into his home, it is filled with sketches of animated characters and a customized Ping-Pong table featuring Mickey Mouse figurines. “He was a visionary man. He invented a whole world,” says Bekmambetov, 55, of Disney.

Bekmambetov is trying to use the creative inspiration from Disney in his most expensive film to date, Ben Hur, Paramount and MGM’s nearly $100 million-budget adaptation of Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel. And he hopes to escape the shadow from the 1959 film adaptation of Ben Hur, which grossed ten times its $15 million budget. Bekmambetov has a busy life, along with directing, he is married to costume designer Varvara Avdyushko and has two daughters.

Bekmambetov admits that taking on this iconic story was intimidating. It is a great story that has a lot of history of being a great fictional version of a biblical story. It is very rare that you have material that is centered on a specific message, along with epic naval battles and chariot races. Although, Bekmambetov was up to the challenge and wanted to step up when no one else would. The 1959 film has a different message than the book. The book focused on forgiveness, and the 1959 film was based on revenge and miracles. And Bekmambetov is going down a different path as well, using his creative inspiration from Disney to create his own legacy. See Bekmambetov’s full quote below.

“It was scary. It’s a great, great book. It’s very unique because it’s a fictional version of the biblical story. It’s very rare when you have material with a message. And at the same time, it’s very entertaining because of the unbelievable naval battles and chariot races. But I like to take a risk and do something nobody wants to try. The 1959 movie is not the same as the book, which has a very different message. The book was written about forgiveness, and the movie they made in 1959 — a great movie — it’s about revenge and miracles. Our movie is different.”

Ben Hur hits theatres August 19, lets see if Bekmambetov can create magic with his adaptation.

With no clear direction in her life, the quirky and creative 26-year-old goes from one job to the next in order to help her tight-knit family make ends meet.
