That’s right; it’s a grudge match to the very end! In one corner we have the director of The Crow, Dark City, I, Robot, and Knowing (yes, Knowing) – Alex Proyas! In the other, weighing in at whatever the hell they want, from the mystical desert – the Gods of Egypt!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Proyas is in negotiations to direct Gods of Egypt, Summit’s fantasy set in the land of the Pharaoh. The story sees a mortal, a god, and a goddess uniting to fight an evil force in ancient Egypt.

Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, who have worked on the in-development Dracula: Year Zero and Flash Gordon, wrote the script. Basil Iwanyk (Clash of the Titans) is producing with his Thunder Road Productions along with Proyas’ Mystery Clock Cinema banner.

More as it comes!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Dark City is in my top 10 films of all time so of course I’ll be in the theatre to see what Proyas brings us. It has to be better than ‘Knowing’ which I assume he made to lower expectations among his fan base.
