Will Christian Bale yell at Joel Edgerton to “let my people go?”

This is the burning question we have regarding Exodus: Gods and Kings, the upcoming epic from Ridley Scott that puts a new spin on the Charlton Heston classic The Ten Commandments. Bale will portray Moses, with Edgerton starring as Pharaoh Ramses, Moses’ childhood friend who as an adult enslaves 600,000 people.

The big names in the cast certainly don’t end there. The movie also features Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro, and Aaron Paul, and tells the story of Moses as he leads his people out of Egypt and through the desert. Seas are parted, wars are waged, plagues are suffered.

The first photos from the set have been released to EW, and we’ve got them for you here:
