Not My Victrola: New Ben Hur Movie!

I saw on the 'net that a new Ben Hur movie will be released during the summer.  There have been three previous Ben Hurs; 1907, 1925, and 1959,  Both the 1925 and 1959 movies are considered masterpieces, and I hope the new one is too.  The Ben Hur Chariot Race predates all of the movies.  It was published in 1894.  It came to my mind immediately when I read the news of the new movie.  I doubt that it did for anyone else.  Maybe next time.  I doubt the director called Joe for his musical expertise. Pity.
