Given the recent news that Ridley Scott's next movie (unless he squeezes in something else, which we doubt) is basically "Prometheus 2," which is set to to arrive in 2016, it's easy to forget that the busy filmmaker has one coming this year. And it's a different flavor than than sci-fi sequel, or last year's grim, talky "The Counselor." It's the Biblical tale "Exodus," and it's getting a title change.

Given the recent news that Ridley Scott's next movie (unless he squeezes in something else, which we doubt) is basically "Prometheus 2," which is set to to arrive in 2016, it's easy to forget that the busy filmmaker has one coming this year. And it's a different flavor than than sci-fi sequel, or last year's grim, talky "The Counselor." It's the Biblical tale "Exodus," and it's getting a title change.

HitFix reveals that the movie, not content with a single word as the title, has now added a subtitle, becoming: "Exodus: Gods And Kings." It does sound weightier we suppose, which makes sense given all this one brings to the table. Scott has assembled another all-star cast—Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver—in a movie that will chronicle the many adventures of Moses, from bringing down the ten commandments to parting the Red Sea. It'll hit theatres on December 12th.

Meanwhile, perhaps not content to just have a cluttered directorial workload, Scott has also signed on to produce "A Better Place," the latest script from "Out Of The Furnace" scribe Brad Ingelsby (Scott was also a producer on 'Furnace'). There are no plot details for this latest screenplay, though Deadline says it's a "gritty thriller" in the ballpark of "A Simple Plan." The search is on right now for a director, and we'll keep you posted.
