Empire has our first look at Ridley Scott's "Exodus," and judging by the impressive construction going on behind Christian Bale's Moses, this Biblical tale should be epic indeed.
The film follows the story of Moses, abandoned as a baby and adopted by Egyptian royalty, only to hear the voice of God as he grows older and ultimately lead the Israelite slaves into the promised land. In this image, Moses witnesses the suffering of his people at the hands of the Pharaoh.
Along with Bale, "Exodus" stars Joel Edgerton as Pharaoh Ramses, John Turturro as Ramses's father Seti, Sigourney Weaver as Ramses's mother Tuya, Aaron Paul as Hebrew slave Joshua, and Ben Kingsley. Empire reports that the film is looking to echo the massive scale of the classic sword and sandals epics of the 1960s, and has apparently cast thousands of extras.
"Exodus" is expected in theaters December 12, 2014.
