Exact plot details are a little hazy but the film features many of the prominent gods of Egyptian mythology, both good and evil. If he joins the film, Butler will play Set, the god of deserts and storms. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is already on board to star in the film, which Basil Iwanyk will produce.
Butler last starred in the “Die-Hard in the White House” film “Olympus Has Fallen”, which offered him some redemption after his bombs “Movie 43” and “Playing for Keeps.” He is also reprising the voice role of Stoick the Vast in “How to Train Your Dragon 2.”
Butler is with CAA.
