Christian Bale Confirmed for Moses in EXODUS, Joel Edgerton in Talks
Earlier this year there was a rumor that Christian Bale would play Moses in Ridley Scott's Biblical epic, Exodus. That casting has been confirmed, and it's also being reported that Joel Edgerton (Zero Dark Thirty) is in talks to play Ramses in the story.
This is going to be Scott's next film project. The original script for the film was written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage. Steve Zaillian worked on the rewrite.
As of right now there aren't any official details on the film's story, but if you know the story of Moses, then you have a pretty good idea of what we're going to get.
This is a perfect story for Scott to take on, and it will be great to see Bale and Edgerton star in the film together. Both of them are very talented actors. I wonder if Scott will use the same visual style for this as he did with Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven. I personally hope he tries something new visually.
