"Exodus: Gods and Kings" is an upcoming biblical epic film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Bill Collage, Adam Cooper and Steven Zaillian. The film is set to be released by 20th Century Fox on December 12 this year. The film is the re-telling and an interpretationof the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt as led by Moses and related in the Old Testament Book of Exodus. The film stars Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver, and Ben Kingsley.
"Exodus: Gods and Kings" is the second big-budget Hollywood Bible-based movie in 2014, after Darren Aronofsky's "Noah." "Noah" grossed over $359 million worldwide at the box office earlier this year.
According to a report by Variety, Scott may even be working on another film based on an Old Testament figure, this time David, the King of Israel.
"Sources tell Variety that Fox has tapped Jonathan Stokes to pen an untitled pic inspired by the character from the 'David and Goliath' tale and focusing on the King of Israel. Though the plot is under wraps, it's likely that the film would focus on the king's reign post-Goliath," the website states.
A movie on David is already planned for a March 2015 release by Christian director Tim Chey, though the plot is set to focus more closely on the famous battle between David and Goliath, the giant Philistine warrior.
