DEGENERES STARRING IN "OH, GOD!" REMAKE POSTED: 12:43 pm EDT August 24, 2004
Comedienne and talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres is getting a promotion --to supreme being.
DeGeneres will star as God in a remake of the 1977 comedy "Oh, God!".
The original starred George Burns as the creator and John Denver as a supermarket manager tapped as a new prophet.
"Ellen is a strong comedian and she has always done material about God and questions about God," said Jerry Weintraub, who produced the original movie and also will oversee the remake.

I can only imagine what religious conservatives will say about the remake version, especially when you consider that God is being played by an open lesbian!
