Remember when I predicted that Bible movies would be the next big fad in Hollywood? If I was a betting man, I’d put have put down cash on a slightly tweaked new fad. And that would be the kickass bible action star genre emerging. We’ve already seen Russell Crowe step up the plate to get ready for a 40 day beatdown on his ark. Time to make way for Batman who is going to klap like an Egyptian in Exodus.Empire and Entertainment Weekly each got a photo of Christian Bale as the Red Sea parter in the upcoming Ridley Scott film. Here they are:
The role of Moses shouldn’t be too much of a stretch for Bale, who has played every character under the sun throughout his career from Dark Knight to Machinist. And Bale won’t be the only actor summoning up a few plagues for Egypt. Ridley Scott has scored an all-star cast for his flick, which also includes the likes of Joel Edgerton as Egyptian pharoah Ramses,Sigourney Weaver and John Turturro as royal parents Tuya and Seti, Aaron Paul as a follower of Moses, and Ben Kingsley adding some more pedigree to the film.
That’s a strong line-up, for any kind of film. Exodus is out on December 12 this year.
