"I guess I didn't pay attention in Sunday School," Ridley Scott told Entertainment Weekly recently about the depth of the story he'll explore in "Exodus: Gods And Kings." "There was so much I had forgotten. It's a marvelous human story about change. There are massive questions here. You treat it with great respect."
The starry cast of Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver are part of the ensemble that will chronicle the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt as led by Moses and related in the Old Testament Book of Exodus.
It’s been a long time since a Ridley Scott film made Oscar waves, but 20th Century Fox will release "Exodus: Gods and Kings" on December 12th, right in the heart of Oscar season. Check out the new images via EW below.
