Will there be two Bible epics on the big screen in 2014?

Ridley Scott’s Moses movie may be further along than we thought. Box Office Mojo posted a few new release dates to its schedule yesterday, and one of them was for Exodus, the Bible epic that Scott has been developing with 20th Century Fox for the past year or two. If the site is to be believed, Exodus will be coming to a theatre near you on December 12, 2014 — or about a year and a half from now. And that would make it one of two Bible epics hitting the big screen next year, the other being Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, which comes out March 28. Interestingly, that film stars Russell Crowe, who has appeared in four of Scott’s last five films and sort of owes his stardom to an even earlier Scott-directed sword-and-sandals flick, Gladiator (2000) — so who knows, if Scott calls on Crowe’s services again, Crowe could end up finding himself in both of next year’s Bible epics.
