When a filmmaker like Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City) is attached to a project, Mania immediately pays attention. Poyas' next project is titled Gods of Egypt. The film’s “story is set in motion when one ruling god, Set, kills another, Osiris. When Osiris' son Horus fails in his attempt to get revenge, and has his eyed plucked out, it's up to a young human thief in love with a slave to help defeat the mad god” (THR).
Well that sounds interesting enough. Now throw into the mix the fine talents of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Geoffrey Rush, and Gerard Butler as the Gods. The last two actors have just signed on for the film.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will play Horus (Sky God)
Geoffrey Rush will play Ra (father of Set and Sun God)
Gerard Butler will play Set (God of Darkness)
If Poyas' story follows the ancient Egyptian legends and myths there still remains the casting of Osiris and Isis, to name just two more and the young human thief.
No release date has been announced Gods of Egypt.
