EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS (2014)Pictured: Joel Edgerton as Ramses
Ridley Scott heads to ancient Egypt for his next film, and now thanks to EW we have the first photos of Joel Edgerton and “Breaking Bad” alum Aaron Paul joining Christian Bale in “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” “Exodus” follows Bale as Moses, the Old Testament prophet who stood up against the pharaoh Ramses (Edgerton) and freed 600,000 slaves. Paul plays Joshua, a Hebrew slave who leads the exiles after Moses. Edgerton, for his part, seems aware of some of the controversy that stirred over some of the film’s casting, thoughRead More
To say “Breaking Bad” was a great launching pad for Aaron Paul’s career is probably the understatement of the century. Now, the show may have landed him another amazing gig, according to Ain’t It Cool News. AICN caught up with Paul at Sundance where he is promoting “Hellion” and when the possibility was raised, Paul was more than happy to divulge that he’s had “a lot of meetings” about taking the role of Eddie Dean in Ron Howard’s long-gestating, ambitious adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” series of novels.Read More
Before “Breaking Bad,” before “Les Miserables,” Aaron Paul and Amanda Seyfried played a married couple on HBO’s long-running, critically acclaimed “Big Love,” and now they’re getting an onscreen reunion. Variety reports Paul is joining Seyfried and Russell Crowe in mutli-generational drama “Fathers and Daughters.” Set 25 years apart and described as “a love story”, Crowe will play an acclaimed writer in the 1980s who recently lost his wife and is struggling with raising his five year old daughter while battling mental illness. Seyfried will play that daughter, Katie, all grownRead More
So yeah, there definitely won’t be a shortage of Aaron Paul even after “Breaking Bad” ends its five season run this year. His latest film is called “Hellion”, according to Deadline, and he’ll be joined by Juliette Lewis in Kat Chandler’s film about a fractured family in a small Texas town trying to hold it together. Outside of his Emmy-winning role as Jesse Pinkman on AMC series “Breaking Bad”, now airing its final, 5th season, Paul won raves opposite Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Sundance hit “Smashed.” He recently wrapped upRead More
This has probably been a long time coming. Joel Edgerton, as busy and ambitious behind the scenes as he is on screen, has set indie drama “Weirdo” as his directorial debut, according to Screen Daily. He also wrote the script and will star in the film, but he’s not Ben Affleck-ing this thing – it will only be in a supporting role. “It’s about a guy who is forced to face the past when it comes back in the form of an old school friend,” Edgerton told Screen Daily inRead More
Upgrade! Johnny Depp is out and Joel Edgerton is in for Depp’s long-gestating adaptation of “Shantaram,” according to Deadline. Depp will stay on as a producer and personally courted the rising Aussie star to take his place in front of the camera. Edgerton will play a guy clearly competing against Louis Zamperini in Angelina Jolie’ “Unbroken” for Biggest Overachiever. An Australian heroin addict who escapes from a maximum security prison, “Shantaram”‘s Lin was once thought to be a thinly veiled fictional avatar for the novel’s author, Gregory David Roberts.

Darren Aronofsky’s got some competition in the biblical epic department. While “Noah”, starring Russell Crowe, Emma Watson and Douglas Booth is in post-production, Ridley Scott is prepping his own big budget blockbuster set in ancient times, with Joel Edgerton now joining Christian Bale in the film titled “Exodus”, according to THR.
