With Darren Aronfsky‘ Noah underway, it looks as though 2013 is going to be the revival of Bible stories! Yesterday, director Steven Spielberg decided against directing the epic Moses feature Gods and Kings for Warner Bros. Now the studio has been in search for someone to get the biblical adventure up and running and with good reason too. Ridley Scott has just signed up to direct 20th Century Fox’s biblical epic Exodus and they may have Christian Bale on board too.
However, everything is still up in the air. Fox, Scott and Bale are still negotiating plot, characters and finances but the script is certainly ready to be utilized. The script originated from Adam Cooper and Bill Collage but has since been rewritten by American Gangster collaborator Steven Zaillian. Once Bale fully agrees to the role, Scott can start planning production instantly.
Bale is currently working with Silver Linings Playbook director David O Russell on his unnamed con-man film starring Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams. However, if the Dark Knight star does accept the role in Exodus we know he will deliver 100%.
