Joel Edgerton in Talks to Star Opposite Christian Bale in Ridley Scott's EXODUS

We've been seeing Joel Edgerton a lot lately. From "Zero Dark Thirty" to "The Great Gatsby" and soon the cursed production of "Jane Got a Gun". The actor certainly appears to be on the up and he is now in talks to star opposite Christian Bale in Ridley Scott's upcoming biblical epic "Exodus".

If the deal is locked, Edgerton will play Ramses, the Egyptian ruler. The story will follow Moses, played by Christian Bale, as he leads the Israelites out of Egypt to the Promised land.

Ridley Scott is back at the helm for the project, working from a screenplay by Steven Zaillian, known for such writing credits as "Moneyball" and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" remake. Production is scheduled to begin in September, which will take place on location in England, Spain and Morocco.

It will be very interesting to see Scott's take on such a legendary and religious story. Especially armed with an incredible actor such as Bale leading the charge, and the prospect of the talented Edgerton also joining the ranks.

Are you looking forward to "Exodus" thus far? Let us know in the comments section below!

    Some people don't like anime as much because of how serreal it is a lot of the times dark and gritty where as other animation that is more popular is light colourful with round appearing shapes this makes the characters cuter or funnier looking witch are more pleasing characteristics and these tricks make them more appealing to the viewer

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.
