Hurt will portray the earthly manifestation of Zeus, who acts as a mentor and teacher to Theseus, portrayed by Cavill. Lucas will portray Athena, the daughter of Zeus.

Producers are Gianni Nunnari of Hollywood Gang Productions, Mark Canton of Atmosphere Entertainment MM and Ryan Kavanaugh, CEO of Relativity Media. Christian Gudegast wrote the screenplay, based on a script by Charley and Vlas Parlapanides.
