New Line Cinema's top secret newest franchise since The Lord of The Rings has been unveiled. Its name is Osiris Release.

The studio is in talks with Ian Somerhalder, Matthew Bomer, Jason Behr, Jared Leto, Kevin Zegers, Mitch Morris and Bryan Greenberg for the main American roles.

And to reach the international market, they are casting foreign actors such as France's Gaspard Ulliel, Britain's Lee Williams, Italy's Riccardo Scamarcio, German actor Knut Berger, Brazilian Reynaldo Gianecchini, and Argentine actress Emilia Attías.

Previously assigned director Hideo Nakata left the project and now a new director is been sought after. Joss Whedon, Takashi Shimizu, Alejandro Amenabar and James McTeigue are in talks to take the empty chair. It's still unknown who wrote the script.

The story of Osiris Release centers on five young men who discover that they are the reincarnations of ancient Egyptian Gods. Situated in today's modern day world, the new gods will have to use their super powers to protect the world from the apocalypse and a group of enemies yet to come.

Scheduled for a late 2008 release, the studio expects to make a new series of movie with this film.

*update with the names of the people according to the pic position:

Jared Leto - Ian Somerhalder
Matthew Bomer - Jason Behr
Kevin Zegers - Mitch Morris - Bryan Greenberg
Riccardo Scamarcio - Lee Williams - Gaspard Ulliel
Knut Berger - Reynaldo Gianecchini - Emilia Attías

It sounds TOO good to be true...let's see if this happens at all! *prays for a gay couple*
It also looks like some of them will be playing brothers, because they look very similar.
And kudos for Emilia, the only female of the cast (and also Argentine)!
