First Look: Christian Bale In Ridley Scott’s ‘Exodus’

First Look: Christian Bale In Ridley Scott's 'Exodus'

From a grizzled factory worker trying to make ends meet and keep his brother on the straight and narrow in “Out Of The Furnace” to a paunchy con man in “American Hustle,” Christian Bale has once again shown his chameleon-like approach in two movies released within weeks of each other. And if you need more proof of the man’s ability to shape-shift as the role permits, here’s further evidence.

The first official image from Ridley Scott‘s “Exodus” has arrived, featuring Bale riding high atop a horse as Moses. The Adam Cooper, Bill Collage and Steve Zaillian penned movie features a stacked cast (Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver) and will tell the story of the man who spoke to a burning bush, brought down the ten commandments on a stone tablet and parted the Red Sea, among many other things.

Given how the seemingly impossible to screw up “The Counselor” turned out, we’re equally wary as intrigued by this one. The Biblical epic lands in theaters on December 12, 2014. [Empire/Baleheads]
