come on now. Haole's were mad as sh*t at Idris for having the ordacity to a Norse god.  But i'm sure they can't understand why this is an issue.

Its not a situation like Angelina Jolie as a black woman Mariane Pearl a few years ago...save the outrage for movies that matter.  This is a nonfictional movie.

Plot Summary: The story of a common thief and a god on a magical quest set in Ancient Egypt. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will play one of the gods in that equation, specifically Horus, God of the Sky, who teams with Hathor, the Goddess of Love, and the human thief to avenge the death of his father, Osiris.

@Tbaby...while I understand what you're saying.  Even though this is a fictional story....it matters IMO.  To see black gods depicted as white...Tho...I guess maybe it won't matter not to most people's of colour.

What's so hilarious is that they will take this as "historical fact" JUST BECAUSE they seen themselves portrayed in it. So tired of seeing their pasty faces every damn where. 

I agree, we need to make our own history movies. Fuk Hollywood.
