300 star Gerard Butler is looking to join Alex Proyas' new film project, Gods of Egypt. The actor is currently in negotiations, and if cast, he will join Game Of Thrones'’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
Deadline reports the Butler will play Set, the god of the desert storms and foreigners in ancient Egyptian religion. "In Egyptian mythology, he killed and mutilated his own brother Osiris." Coster-Waldau will play Horus, the son of Osiris, the god of Sky. He teams up with a human thief and Hathor, the goddess of love, on a magical quest to avenge the death of his father.
The script was written by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, the team behind Universal’s new Dracula film. This could be a visually stunning movie, and I like the cast they are putting together for the film. I'm looking forward to seeing what Proyas is planning for it.
