Petition to sign is below


“The Gods of Egypt” Film to Feature All White Cast


godsofegypt

The new movie, The Gods of Egypt, being put out by the Australian filmmaker, Alex Proyas, is due to feature an all-white cast. Proyas is well known for directing films such as The Crow (1994), Dark City (1998), I, Robot (2004), and Knowing (2009). But the dark over tones of his movies are the only thing slated to be dark in The Gods of Egypt. Even the Egyptian deity Ra is slated to be played by the Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, famous for his role on the Game of Thrones.

A petition by Thorne Studios on Change.org called this “a whitewashing of World History.”

“From an early age, we are incredibly prone to the images thrown in our direction from a many different ones, eventually shaping the way we look on the world and ourselves. The blunt westernization of African gods displayed here is without a doubt, shameless in its own right, and will not be accepted nor tolerated. This is an element of storytelling that has gone on for far too long, and must be put to rest as timely as possible. I try to imagine a reality in which Roman Gods are portrayed as Chinese, but my mind just simply won’t allow it.”

Please sign this petition, and get the word out. The 21st century should not be dominated by images of European Princes of Persia, and Gods of Egypt. Such casting is little different than the minstrel shows of a century ago. What’s so hard about hiring people of African descent to play African characters? SPREAD THE WORD and let them know that this is not going to be tolerated!

Nothing about this is surprising. A movie about biblical Noah is set to be released in 2014.

Russel Crowe is Noah.


Logan Lerman is Ham.


Douglas Booth is Shem.



No word of Japheth.

Not surprised, either.  This is Hollywood, not a source for historically accurate information.

I hate that I'm hyped to see Noah. I love Darren Aronofsky's films.

Green Lantern lol....DeadI don't know why this whole comment made me giggle.

anyways, I can't say I'm surprised either...this is white-dominated Hollyweird after all--they ain't about that historically accurate life cos who wants to see a bunch of negros and brown people in a film right? Sleepy

White people take ALL the roles of interest for themselves. The hell is wrong with them?

I don't think I'll ever see narcissism worse than what the white race exhibits on a daily basis.

You almost want to laugh at them but instead I pity them. How much do you have to lie to yourself?
