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!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
