Two months ago, we saw some pictures of Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Ramesses on the set of Ridley Scott’s Exodus — but those were basically paparazzi shots, unauthorized by the studio. Today, however, we have our first officially-sanctioned picture of Bale as Moses, courtesy of Empire magazine — and, like the earlier pictures which showed Moses holding a bow and arrow, the new picture is slightly unusual in that it shows Moses sitting on a horse, which I can’t recall seeing him do in any other film before. (He usually walks or, in his prince-of-Egypt days, drives a chariot.) You almost wonder if Scott is subconsciously turning this into another Robin Hood movie. Anyhoo.
