Prepare yourselves for a Biblical pec fest the likes of which mankind has never seen.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, "Twilight" hunk Taylor Lautner and former WWE grappler Dwayne Johnson have been offered the two leads in "Goliath," a period action movie based on the Biblical tale of David and Goliath.

The story of David and Goliath is the original underdog tale. We won't spoil it for you, but it involves a slingshot to the head. Well, actually, I guess we just spoiled it for you. Oh well.

Director Scott Derrickson will helm the action flick which is said to combine the classic tale with contemporary sensibilities. Relativity will produce alongside Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill who (big surprise) produced the "Twilight" flicks.  

However, fans of heaving man-chests should temper their enthusiasm. Since both actors currently command upwards of $10 million per picture, financial issues may very well tank this fantasy casting of prime man rib.

We are attempting to reach the author of the Bible to see what he or she thinks about tons of gratuitous slow-mo and shirtlessness.
