GODS OF EGYPT 2 TO STAR PAUL BETTANY

HOLLYWOOD – Paul Bettany is confirmed for Gods of Egypt 2: Gods of Central Africa to be filmed early next year.

Wimbledon star, Paul Bettany has been confirmed for a lead role in Gods of Egypt 2: Gods of Central Africa, the sequel which will take the action of the first film deeper into the heart of whitest Africa.

We had a chance to speak to Paul about the role and this is what he told us EXCLUSIVELY:

I’ve been very lucky making movies but one thing that irks me is that as an Albino it is very difficult to find roles that allow me to play them in my natural complexion. Most directors want me to ‘pink up’ so that my complexion doesn’t distract from the story. I don’t agree with it and the Albino community are rightly irritated by my choice, but given the paucity of Albino roles, what can I do? The one exception was The Da Vinci Code but here the paradox was I was playing a villain and so my complexion was being used against the profile of the wider Albino community.

But the new film…

Gods of Egypt 2: Gods of Central Africa will take us into the deepest heart of Africa. Gerard Butler is back as Thet, a God who will rise again wanting revenge and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau plays Horus. I am Honkius, the great White God of Central Africa, who is seeking to take over the whole of the continent and place it under my pallid thrall.

That sounds great.

It does, doesn’t it? Alex Proyas already had the script ready even when he was making the first film and the advance publicity has been so good that the studio decided we should start preparing the follow up. Ridley Scott is going to executive produce, because he basically executive produces everything now. And my role will be a great step forward for the Albino community who are finally getting some representation.

But you’re still playing a villain?

Yes, that is true but just the fact and can play him in my own skin and don’t forget… he’s a God.

Gods of Egypt 2: Gods of Central Africa will be released in 2018.

WIMBLEDON BAN KEVIN SPACEY

WIMBLEDON, ENGLANDSHIRE – The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club – more popular known as the body that organises the Wimbledon Tennis Championship every June – has banned House of Cards and Usual Suspects star Kevin Spacey from attending any more competitions – “forthwith and from this point forward.”

The decision came after a series of incidents involving what is described as “Mr. Spacey’s lewd and inappropriate behaviour”. This began with shouting and swearing and led on inevitably to more serious charges. 

After an attack

Aged groundsman Albert Thitherwaite was one of the witnesses who were distressed by the Hollywood actor’s “rambunctious behaviour”:

Whenever a player would bend over as he or she received the service, this gentleman would hop out of his seat and stick a finger up them. Sometimes a thumb! He did it irregardless of sex or quality. He even started doing it during the doubles games. He has very long arms.

It has been argued that the early surprise defeats of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal were largely do to Mr. Spacey’s persistent shouting of “miss it!” at the wrong moment thereby breaking the players’ concentration. Spacey has also gone on YouTube to badger players and inflict what Serena Williams called “psychological warfare”:

 

He hates tennis. That’s the only way I can rationalise his behaviour. It’s just out there otherwise.

taunting losers

Kevin Spacey has decided to film a second season of House of Cards for Netflix in a fit of pique and has promised, “I’ll make it rubbish on purpose.”
