Game of Thrones’ Coster-Waldau in Talks for Gods of Egypt

It looks like director Alex Proyas has cast the lead in his Ancient Egypt-based fantasy epic Gods of Egypt and it’s none other than Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, best known for playing Jaime Lannister on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” who is in talks to star in the film being produced and distributed by Summit Entertainment.

Proyas is directing from an original screenplay by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, which tells the story of a common thief teaming with Gods on a magical quest. According to The Wrap, Coster-Waldau would 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.

Besides playing a big part in Season 3 of “Game of Thrones,” the Danish actor is coming off his roles in the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror movie Mama and the Tom Cruise sci-fi action flick Oblivion and is currently filming the comedy The Other Woman with Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and director Nick Cassevetes.

According to Cartermatt.com Nikolaj has confirmed he is about to begin shooting on season 4 on GAME OF THRONES next month. Here is the article below:

‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 spoilers: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau confirms start of filming

Just in case you wanted that extra confirmation as to when “Game of Thrones” season 4 was going to officially get going, we have it for you courtesy of a man who would surely know better than anyone else: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. The man has tragically seen his role reduced the past few weeks as some other storylines have taken precedence (see the Red Wedding), but pending something shocking in Sunday’s finale, he will probably stick around a while longer.

Speaking to TVLine, the Critics’ Choice TV Award nominee confirmed that the series will officially start filming again next month, presumably in their oh-so familiar environment of Belfast, Northern Ireland. This is where most of their crew hails from, and the soundstages are also present here for them to film their array of interior scenes.

As for where else we could see the cast heading to shoot, that remains somewhat of a mystery. Dubrovnik, Croatia seems to be a given, at least thanks to the fact that King’s Landing is always going to be important to the show. Morocco could be, depending on where Danaerys is placed around the time the new season starts up. As for Iceland, that’s sorely dependent on what happens with a number of characters.

We already imagine that the series is going to have a number of intriguing challenges to face once it moves into season 4: How do you try and recreate the excitement of the Red Wedding, the most devastating event of the series’ history, without feeling cheap or exploitative? It took seasons to build to that, and much of next season could therefore be rebuilding to something incredibly shocking down the road. This event also teaches us that just because we may or may not have read the books, the producers are still at liberty to make changes.

There’s a promo up for next week’s finale of season 3’s GAME OF THRONES. The title of the episode is Mhysa. In Old Valeryan it means Mother. Just a word on episode nine. I’m so sad at losing Robb (Richard Madden). I’ve loved both the character and the actor since the beginning and this is like losing Sean Bean all over again. The one thing I have to say is that Richard Madden has made a fan out of me. I think he has a great future ahead of him. I’m wishing nothing but the best and hope to see him again soon, though I’ll miss him as Robb. And what can be said about Michelle Fairley? She’s a great lady and without a doubt one of the main reasons I think Richard was so good. Having her to bounce off of each week. I’m so thrilled to have gotten to know these two wonderful actors. Kudos to them for a great run.



I’ve uploaded the soundtrack from season two of GAME OF THONES to the gallery. These files can be played in your default media player. Each file with the exception of three are in MP3 format. The final three files are the front and back cover scans and a digital booklet that can be read through Adobe Acrobat available for download here or your default reader program. Some really moving pieces on this one. My favourite I’d have to say is The Rains of Castomere performed by The National and sung by actor Jerome Flynn who plays Bronn, Tyrion’s (Peter Dinklage) protector. This piece was featured at the end of season two episode nine Blackwater. I’m embedding it here for your pleasure.

Personally, there really isn’t anyone in the field that is as good as Nikolaj. My own opinion of course. Fellow GAME OF THRONES stars Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) was also nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category, as well as Dame Diana Rigg DBE who was nominated in the Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series category for her role as Olenna Tyrell. Congratulations Emilia and Ms. Rigg. GAME OF THRONES also garnered a nomination for Best Drama Series.
