LOS ANGELES, April 23 (UPI) -- Producer Mark Burnett says "The Bible," his highly rated, 10-part American TV miniseries, will be pared down and released as a three-hour film in theaters.

"We're cutting a movie version right now, a three-hour version of Jesus and [we have] many, many offers from theaters globally," executive producer Mark Burnett told The Hollywood Reporter.

Burnett said the movie version, which will focus largely on Jesus Christ's resurrection, is expected to open in theaters this fall.
