Oscar–winner Forest Whittaker has signed on to be one of 200 voices reading the Old Testament for an audiobook project due out this November. The Old Testament will be covered over 72 CDs and also be available on iTunes.
The dramatic readings feature a cast of singers, actors and clergymen, with the added dramatic effect of an original score performed by the Prague Symphony Orchestra as an accompaniment.
Also reading for the project are Denzel Washington, Cuba Gooding Jr and Angela Bassett. It is being set up by the same team of producers that produced the New Testament as an audiobook last year.
