According to Deadline, it looks like Sigourney Weaver (“Alien”), John Turturro (” O’ Brother Where Art Thou”), both of which are already confirmed, Ben Kingsley (“Iron Man 3″) and Aaron Paul (AMC’s “Breaking Bad”), both of which are in final negotiations, are joining Ridley Scott’s upcoming biblical epic “Exodus.”
The film currently has Christian Bale (“The Machinist”) as Moses and Joel Edgerton (“Zero Dark Thirty”) as Ramses II, and would see Ben Kingsley play a Hebrew scholar, John Turturro as Seti, father of the Pharaoh Ramses II, Sigourney Weaver as Ramses’ mother Tuya, and Emmy-winning Aaron Paul as Joshua, the Hebrew slave who leads the people into the promised land after Moses.
I was already ecstatic about this movie since it was another epic from Ridley Scott (“Kingdom of Heaven” director’s cut was incredible), and Joel Edgerton is one of my favorite actors since he won me over in “Warrior,” but if all this casting comes to fruition I’ll be on another level.
