新版《宾虚》由《刺客联盟》（Wanted）导演提莫·贝克曼贝托夫（Timur Bekmambetov）导演，剧本由《为奴十二年》的编剧约翰·雷德利（John Ridley）在基思·克拉克（Keith Clarke）初稿剧本基础上创作。
Ben-Hur is a major Paramount Pictures/MGM motion picture hitting theaters nationwide on August 19, 2016. Bursting with action - including a new chariot race for the ages - and elevated by Christian themes of justice, liberty & radical forgiveness, it tells the classic story of Judah Ben–Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell), an officer in the Roman army. Stripped of his title and separated from his family and the woman he loves (Nazanin Boniadi), Judah is forced into slavery and despair.
After years at sea, a breathtaking turn of events sends Judah on an epic journey back to his homeland to seek revenge, where a chance encounter with Jesus of Nazareth (Rodrigo Santoro) transforms his life and leads him to discover grace, mercy and ultimately, redemption. Based on Lew Wallace's timeless novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ. Also starring Morgan Freeman in an unforgettable performance.
