Check out the sets being constructed for Ridley Scott's Exodus and first shots of Christian Bale as Moses

Oct. 22, 2013by:

Even before Ridley Scott's THE COUNSELOR hits theaters, the director is already hard at work on his next project, the epic Moses movie EXODUS. With a huge cast featuring Christian Bale, Aaron Paul, Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver, and John Turturro, it seems like it will harken back to the glorious scale of his GLADIATOR. These new set photos are a nice hint at the practical sets being built for the production.

Sure, there is some green screen in there, but the fact this isn't going to be an all CGI project means it is going to look good. Plus, we have a look at Joel Edgerton in his Egyptian garb and Christian Bale looking more like Robin Hood than Moses. I am psyched to see this story told with an action bend, much like Darren Aronofsky's NOAH.

The one thing this movie needs now is some massive battle scenes. I want this movie to be rooted in a realistic historical context, but you cannot ignore the plagues or the parting of the Red Sea. This needs to be epic movie-making at it's finest and Ridley Scott is the type of director who can deliver the goods.

EXODUS is set to hit theaters on December 12, 2014.

It took me like 20 seconds of staring at the top picture to convince myself that the dude on the left is really Joel Edgerton.

Can't say I'm excited for the upcoming slew (believe me, it's gonna be a slew) of biblical pictures, but I'll watch anything by Aranofsky and Scott.

I'm sure this movie is going to be bad ass, but don't call an historical movie because it's a work of fiction, let's call it what it is.

Wow, this certainly looks like it has an old-school Biblical epic feel to it, and now I'm really excited. Also, this makes Christian Bale the second Batman to be Moses, after Val Kilmer in Prince of Egypt!

Bale looks like Crowe from Robin Hood and Edgerton looks like Xerxes from 300. I hope this turns out to be epic similar to Kingdom of Heaven.

Movie looks great and I'm glad to see actual sets being used than cgi.

And I would totally watch Christian Bale play Robin Hood in a Robin Hood film.

He would be good, but I loved Crowe. Sadly it looks like we will not be getting a second chapter of Scott's Robin Hood. However, I'm pumped about this.

And the Lord commanded Moses, "thou shalt cross the desert plain by VW Bus. It hath been commanded, thus it shall be done."

Hang on, they're making an Exodus movie?? Somehow I only heard of Aronofsky's Noah film, I had no idea two Biblical epics were being filmed at roughly the same time. With a sci-fi guy like Ridley Scott at the helm, I'm intrigued by how he's going to approach a movie of this genre.

Cast a bunch of English and Australian dudes as Egyptians and Israelites looks like how he's going to approach it.

I would be willing to bet he approaches it in a realistic fashion - much like Kingdom of heaven
