Joel Edgerton is in talks for Ridley Scott's upcoming biblical epic Exodus.
The Great Gatsby star would take on the role of Egyptian ruler Ramses opposite Christian Bale as Moses in the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Exodus will shoot in Spain, Morocco and England, with a slated September start date.
Earlier this year, Oscar-winning screenwriter Steve Zaillian (Schindler's List, Moneyball, Gangs of New York) wrote the most recent draft of the script.
Edgerton has recently been cast alongside Michael Shannon in Jeff Nichols' sci-fi film Midnight Special.
