Brenton Thwaites to join Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Gerard Butler in Summit's "Gods of Egypt."
Alex Proyas is on board to direct the pic.
Proyas will produce along with Basil Iwanyk through his Thunder Road Pictures.
Thwaites is a rising stars who has been waiting for a role like this to land. He was up for the male lead opposite Mark Wahlberg in Paramount's "Transformers: Age of Extinction" before Jack Reynor got it and was in the running for a big role in the new "Pirates of the Caribbean" film before its production was pushed.
Thwaites is repped by WME.
