Did You Know?

 Darren Aronofsky originally wanted Christian Bale to play the title role in Noah (2014) but Bale had to decline due to scheduling conflicts. The role ultimately went to Russell Crowe. Bale was later cast as Moses, another biblical figure, in this Scott-helmed feature.

Joel Edgerton found out about getting the role of Rhamses when he received multiple congratulatory emails from people who had heard about his casting online.

In an interview with Esquire magazine, Ridley Scott called religion "the biggest source of evil", explaining, "Everyone is tearing each other apart in the name of their personal god. And the irony is, by definition, they're probably worshiping the same god".
