ZEUS (70’s), silver-haired Lord of the Gods. He is wise, cocky, charming, angry - unpredictable and explosive. You might not want him as your friend, but you definitely don't want him as your enemy.
Since he’s always susceptible to the charms of women, he quickly falls in love with Zinya and Louise which sets off his wife…
Think Morgan Freeman, Jeff Bridges, Kurt Russell, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
HERA (70’s), goddess of marriage, women, the sky and most importantly, the wife of Zeus. Her beauty is of such polish that it does not hold a man's interest.
Temperamental and childlike, she is faithful but extremely jealous. She supports her husband but doesn’t think twice about exacting revenge on his mistresses.
Think Juliette Binoche, Monica Bellucci, Helen Mirren, Judi Dench, and Oprah Winfrey.
APHRODITE (50s), Goddess of Beauty and Love.
Lonely and neglected by her lover, she comes off as snobby, but she carries the broken heart of someone who just wants to be loved.
Think Michelle Pfeiffer, Julianne Moore, Penelope Cruz, and Demi Moore.
SCIENTIO (50s), gender-curious God of Science.
His nerdy ambition defines him. Innovation and invention fuel his action… The Wild West meets Back to the Future’s Dr. Emmett Lloyd.
Think Matthew McConaughey, Dylan McDermott, Colin Firth, Owen Wilson, and Clive Owen.
SIRO, our trickster magician created by Scientio – an enchanted AI virtual assistant that magically shape-shifts from a cell phone to an eagle. A self-learning entity that sets off our love triangle.
This character ages over the course of our story from beeps and sounds; to a child; to a wise man.
Think Ben Whishaw, Anthony Hopkins, and Keith David.
LOUISE (37), cross-country truck driver but longs for a stable home and family life. A charming, low maintenance woman-next-door who isn't afraid to climb a tree, shoot a gun, and drink mediocre bourbon. She won't bring you iced tea when you work, but she’ll work alongside you.
Think Jennifer Garner, Elizabeth Banks, Ellen Pompeo, Linda Hamilton, and CJ Stussi (...yes, this is the part the filmmaker would like to play!).
PHILIP (38), he runs a bakery and he’s the most grounded character in our story. His authenticity makes him charismatic; this is ultimately why he attracts the attention of the gods.
He follows his heart and doesn’t second-guess himself. The kind of guy you want as a best friend or to marry your sister, or you!
Think Ryan Gosling, Ryan Reynolds, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
ZINYA (37), Philip’s fiancée, a successful self-made lawyer representing whistleblowers in big cases that make headlines. Loves her job but feels stuck; she longs for adventure outside of the norm. Super smart and hard to read – some might think she’s our villain.
Think Shannyn Sossamon, Gal Gadot, Amy Acker, Emanuelle Chriqui, Morena Baccarin, Eva Mendes, and Zoe Saldana.
