Looks like Ridley Scott wants an Oscar.
Great news for Sigourney Weaver fans!September 26, 2013 at 7:12 am #113513
Weaver for best actress………a very good possibility.September 26, 2013 at 8:20 am #113514
Doesn’t the role of Tuya seem more likely in the supporting category? I could see Bale pushed for lead, with Edgerton and Weaver both considered supporting. This type of epic seems like it could either be beloved or blasted, however I will expect the former because I am personally a fan of Scott.September 26, 2013 at 9:11 am #113515
So, Paul is winning that oscar huhSeptember 26, 2013 at 9:37 am #113516
I don’t know if Paul can pull off the Biblical. He just seems too contemporary, the way he speaks.
Yeah, I don’t think Sigourney’s the lead of the movie.
And Joel Edgerton as the pharoah. I’m not sure he would be my first choice.
I don’t know…in recent years, many epics have totally failed at the Oscar game.September 26, 2013 at 10:36 am #113517
Since there is already a film called Exodus (1960, Preminger) will they be forced to change the name to “Ridley Scott’s Exodus, based on the Pentateuch by Moses”?September 26, 2013 at 5:08 pm #113518
I hope I’m wrong, but this has ‘controversy’ all over it already. People, are fighting about this fiflm. Seriously. Well, I guess it could have the opposite effect and spur people into the theatres.January 5, 2014 at 6:50 pm #113519

20th Century Fox has premiered the first picture of Christian Bale as Moses in Ridley Scott‘s Exodus,
just one of 2014’s Biblical epics, this one centering on the story of
Moses (Bale) as he leads the Israelites out of Egypt into the Sinai
desert and eventually to the Promised Land.January 5, 2014 at 7:05 pm #113520

Yeah, I think this looks like a film that could gain a lot from the controversy. Like “Passion Of Christ” did. But it’s been a while since Ridley had a hit, but who knows? This could be bigger than we expect.January 5, 2014 at 7:18 pm #113522
Disaster in the works!!!!!January 5, 2014 at 7:44 pm #113523
Could be anywhere from the worst film of the year to the best. Really can’t be sure with Scott these days. The cast is outstanding but you can’t even trust that after The Counselor. My fingers are crossed it’s on the great end of the spectrum, this has a whole lot of potential.March 23, 2014 at 6:26 pm #113525
I was watching that History Channel’s The Bible, also having read the book. I believe people are understimating how fit Aaron Paul is for this role, I could easily see him being a real contender playing Joshua. Also, Rhamses is a very meaty role, but not sure if Edgerton is a nice cast for this. Also there is a new article about the movie and I already quote here.

- Aaron Paul says: “The Bible is a sensitive subject to many people. The film will cause a controversy when it comes out, and I like that.”
- Ridley Scott says: “Moses rises against the thousands of Egyptian gods in the name of one god. This is a very modern idea.”
The film has one thing going for it – Need for Speed, with Aaron Paul, is a big hit overseas (much bigger than in the US, despite Paul being virtually unknown to foreign audiences). That could help its chances.
