Australian model-actress Courtney Eaton, who makes her acting debut in Mad Max: Fury Road, has landed the female lead in Gods of Egypt.

The story centers on the Egyptian god of the desert Set (Gerard Butler), who murders his brother Osiris in cold blood. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau plays Osiris' son Horus, who tries to avenge his father's death, but gets his eyes plucked out in the process. He seeks the help of a human thief named Bek (Brenton Thwaites), who is in love with a slave girl (Courtney Eaton), to get his revenge on Set. Geoffrey Rush also stars as Ra, father to both Set and Osiris.

Alex Proyas is directing from a screenplay by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, with Basil Iwanyk producing through his Thunder Road company. No production schedule was given.
