Ridley Scott is adding Aaron Paul, John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver to the cast of his upcoming biblical tale Exodus, Variety reports. They join the previously-announced Christian Bale in the role of Mosese and Joel Edgerton as Ramses. The latter two stars will play Ramses' parents while Paul (who is still said to be in negotiations) will play a Hebrew slave.

The 20th Century Fox film features a script by Steve Zallian, Adam Cooper and Bill Collage that follows the story of Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt into the Sinai desert and eventually to their Promised Land.

Paul, best known for playing Jesse Pinkman on "Breaking Bad," can be seen coming up in Scott Waugh's video game adaptation Need For Speed. Turturro, meanwhile, soon stars opposite Woody Allen in the comedy Fading Gigolo, which he also wrote and directed. Weaver, meanwhile, is re-teaming with Scott for the first time since 1979's Alien. She recently appeared in Amy Heckerling's horror comedy Vamps.

Exodus is slated to hit theaters on December 12, 2014.
