Australian actor Brenton Thwaites, a chap whose future looks so bright he better start wearin’ shades, has snagged the lead role in fellow countryman Alex Proyas’s latest, “Gods of Egypt”. The “Maleficent” and “Blue Lagoon : The Awakening” star joins Gerard Butler, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Geoffrey Rush in an actioner about a god of the desert, Set (Butler) in ancient Egyptian religion.

Says Deadline, “He killed and mutilated his own brother Osiris. Horus (Coster-Waldau), the son of Osiris, seeks revenge. Thwaites will play Bek, a human thief who cares little for the affairs of gods but when he discovers Zaya has been cursed by Set, he falls on the side of Horus, hoping that Set’s death will break the curse.”

Thwaites, who got his start on “Home & Away”, is currently filming Phil Noyce’s “The Giver”.
