Movie News: Bale and Edgerton To Follow Ridley Scott on His EXODUS

Movie News

Ridley Scott has secured Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton for his next film, the Oscar-baiting biblical epic EXODUS.

The former Bat will take the leading role of Moses, while THE THING's Edgerton will play Egyptian ruler, Ramses. As usual, Hollywood is turning a colour-blind eye to the fact that both stars are white, and therefore wholly unsuitable for their respective parts. But then again the bible isn’t necessarily known for its factual accuracy either, so maybe this is okay! (It’s not.)

Moses will lead the Egyptian people on their EXODUS December 2014. But will the film be able to lead people into the multiplexes?
