Relativity Media has acquired the film rights to author Michael Drosnin’s Bible Code book series, which includes New York Times best-sellers “The Bible Code,” “Bible Code II: The Countdown,” and “Bible Code III: Saving the World.”

The series is based on a 3000 year-old code in the Bible found by a top Israeli scientist and confirmed by a senior code breaker at the US National Security Agency. It reveals momentous historical events, and predicts the future. The code has successfully predicted world events such as the election of President Barack Obama, the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, and the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The studio will develop the series of books into a tentpole movie to be released in 2012. Read the full press release after the jump.
