The story centers on Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), whose father Osiris was killed by his uncle Set (Gerard Butler), the god of the desert, storms and foreigners in Egyptian mythology. Brenton Thwaites plays the human thief Bek, who joins forces with Horus in hopes that Set's death will break the curse he put on a character named Zaya. Geoffrey Rush portrays Ra, the father to both Osiris and Set.
Alex Proyas is directing from a screenplay by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Dracula Untold, Flash Gordon). Basil Iwanyk and Alex Proyas are producing, although it isn't known when shooting is scheduled to begin.
