Bale Set, Edgerton Up For Scott’s “Exodus”

Joel Edgerton is in discussion to play Ramses in Ridley Scott’s upcoming biblical feature “Exodus” at 20th Century Fox.

Edgerton will be facing off against a now confirmed Christian Bale as Moses in this famed take on the story of the prophet leading the children of Israel out of slavery in Egypt.

Steve Zaillian penned the latest draft of the script. Fox decided to move forward on the film once a rival Steven Spielberg project at Warner Bros. Pictures collapsed.
