Australian actor Joel Edgerton has been tapped to portray Egyptian ruler Ramses in Sir Ridley Scott's Biblical epic Exodus.

The Zero Dark Thirty star is in negotiations to join the director's latest project, which will feature Christian Bale as Moses.

Production on the movie is set to begin next month (Sep13), with shoots in Spain, Morocco and England, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Exodus is not the only Biblical adventure in the works - Oscar winner Ang Lee is attached to direct a rival blockbuster, called Gods & Kings, which is also about the story of Moses, while Russell Crowe's Noah is set for release next year (14).
