The director of Alien and Prometheus, Christian Bale as Moses, Jesse Pinkman as his trusted follower Joshua and Australian actor Joel Edgerton as the Pharaoh Ramses…sounds like an interesting movie to me! Is there a greater and more interesting story in the world than the one of Moses? All of these exciting factors put into […]
