Sigourney Weaver Set for Moses Movie 'Exodus', Aaron Paul and Ben Kingsley in Talks


'Transformers' actor John Turturro, along with Weaver who reteams with director Ridley Scott, has been on board the biblical pic, headlined by Christian Bale.

Ridley Scott will reunite with Sigourney Weaver in his next directorial effort, the biblical film "Exodus". The "Alien" actress has closed a deal to portray Tuya, mother of Ramses II. Joining the cast to star as Seti, Tuya's husband and the Egyptian pharaoh's father, is "Transformers" star John Turturro.

While Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, both of whom are set to play Moses and Ramses respectively, are getting two new co-stars, two other actors are looking forward to joining soon. Ben Kingsley is in negotiation to be a Hebrew scholar with Aaron Paul entering talks to be Joshua, the Hebrew slave who leads the people into the promised land after Moses.

Besides directing, Scott will serve as producer under the Scott Free banner alongside Peter Chernin of Chernin Entertainment. He will direct from a script revised by Steve Zaillian, who also helps produce with his Film Rites partner, Garrett Basch. Production is scheduled to be kicked off next month in England, Spain and Morocco.

Weaver is also known for starring in "Avatar" and will take part in "The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes". Turturro has just completed filming "Fading Gigolo", which also stars Woody Allen. Paul is currently seen in "Breaking Bad", while Kingsley will be featured in "Ender's Game".
