Ridley Scott casts Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver, and John Turturro in Exodus

Ridley Scott has big plans for his EXODUS movie. Forget THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, Scott is aiming for the same scope as Darren Aronofsky's upcoming NOAH and has assembled one hell of a cast for his Biblical epic focused on Moses leading the Jewish people from Egypt. On top of the already cast Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton as Moses and Pharoah Ramses II respectively, Scott is close to signing Ben Kingsley, Sigourney Weaver, Aaron Paul, and John Turturro.

According to Deadline, Turturro and Weaver will play the parents to Edgerton's Pharoah, Paul would portray Joshua, and Kingsley would play a Hebrew scholar. I love every one of these selections, especially Paul. After his acclaimed turn in BREAKING BAD, many have typecast him in the punk teen role when he is capable of a heck of a lot more. The NEED FOR SPEED movie won't prove it, but I bet this turn in EXODUS will.

Between Aronofsky and Scott, I am definitely more excited to see NOAH, but I cannot help but think about GLADIATOR. It looks like the big budget studio Bible epic is back and I think audiences will be in for one heck of a ride.

Extra Tidbit: I just cannot wait to here Aaron Paul say bitch while dressed as a Hebrew slave.

Aaron Paul rocks. Can't wait to see him in some real juicy role. He has great acting chops.
Can't wait to see a big budget film of Muhammad in all his jihadist glory (not). Watch him beat his 9 year old wife and chop people's heads off. Rape and pillage his way through history. Wonder if anyone would tackle that one eh. Hey it's only fair right. Lol

Great cast so far.

I'm hoping Aaron Paul has been cast as The Devil's Advocate so he can say "Science, bitch!" and thus disprove Creationism.

These are the jokes, Christians. Get with the program.

Badass cast. Need more Blonde Siggy Sig, and it will be great to see her reunite with the man who made her a movie star.

Scott sure can assemble a heck of a cast. I still find it funny that Bale will be the second actor to portray Batman and Moses (if you include the voice work Kilmer did for Prince of Egypt).

Would have loved to see Paul as Moses just for this line:

"Yo, Ramses, let my people go, bitch!"

Sorry, I'll walk myself out...
