PRESS STATEMENT FROM 20TH CENTURY FOX:
Filmed at Pinewood Studios in London and on location in Almeria, Spain and Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, Exodus: Gods & Kings is the reimagining of one of the greatest stories ever told by one of the best filmmakers working today.
Filmed in 3D, Scott’s film will tell the story of Moses, abandoned by a desperate mother as a baby after the Egyptian rulers orders the murder of all boys born to slaves. The boy is found in the bulrushes by the Pharaoh’s daughter and raised in the royal household, where he grows up alongside Ramses, the future monarch.
As a man, Moses (played by Christian Bale) has a vision and turns his back on his privileged life and leads his people, the Israelites, from enslavement. Scott’s film will feature ground-breaking special effects, including the plagues visited upon Egypt and the parting of the Red Sea. In the film, Joel Edgerton is cast as Pharaoh Ramses II.
