Gerard Butler: Egyptian God of Deserts, Storms, and Foreigners


The Ancient Egyptian god of the desert, storms, and foreign lands may soon be played by Modern Scotland's god of hostile romantic-comedies, sit-ups, and Phantom of the Opera remakes. According to Deadline, Gerard Butler is in talks to play Set in Gods of Egypt, director Alex Proyas's mythology lesson taught by 43-year-old European guys. Butler will seemingly be the antagonist, portraying the god who killed his brother Osiris; Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has already been cast as Horus, Osiris's son, out for vengeance against Set. This is surprisingly not already a third-person action game available on the Playstation Network.
