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!
