Alex Proyas Setting Up Gods of Egypt at Summit


A few years back, I, Robot director Alex Proyas helmed the sci-fi thriller Knowing for Summit Entertainment, and according to Deadline, they plan to reunite for Proyas’ Gods of Egypt, an original story set in ancient Egyptian times that he’ll be co-writing with Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.

Produced by Proyas’ Mystery Clock Cinema with Basil (Clash of the Titans) Iwanyk’s Thunder Road, the film is “the story of a common thief and a god on a magical quest set amongst the pyramids and sphinxes.”

But first, Proyas will make the psychological thriller The Unpleasant of Jonathan Hoag for Phoenix Pictures, which he’s currently casting.
