Liam Neeson spills details on “Clash of the Titans” sequel


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Louis Leterrier’s “Clash of the Titans” remake has its detractors. The more vocal ones point at the film’s post-production 3D conversion, while others find faults with the film, itself. But the update now has something that the original never had: a sequel.

Liam Neeson has revealed details about a film that’s now being referred to as “Wrath of the Titans” while promoting “The Chronicles of Narnia” to The Belfast Telegraph. Neeson once again will play Zeus to Sam Worthington’s Perseus when the sequel begins filming in March.

“I’ve only read half of the script and there is still some work being done,” Neeson said. “They’re on script 10, but I think it’s going to be some kick-ass stuff and a very human story to it.”

Leeson did not say whether the sequel would be shot in 3D, though he did confirm that Leterrier will not return, having been replaced by Jonathan Liebesman. The Belfast report goes on to say that Gemma Arterton and Ralph Fiennes would return for the sequel, which we believe. But it adds that James Franco and Javier Bardem are “reportedly in talks to play Poseidon’s son Agenor and … Ares, god of war,” respectively. And that is a little harder to believe. We’ll see. More on “Wrath” as it develops.
