Clash of the Titans sequel reveals cast, plot details
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: More details are starting to emerge regarding Warner Bros.’ planned “Clash of the Titans” sequel, which will be helmed by “Battle: Los Angeles” director Jonathan Liebesman.
More than anything, fans probably just want to be assured that the 3D won’t be as crappy as the post-conversion hack work on the initial “Clash.”
According to a studio press release, Edgar Ramirez (Ares), Toby Kebbell (Argenor), Rosamund Pike (Andromeda), and Bill Nighy (Hephaestus) will be joining returning cast members Sam Worthington (Perseus), Liam Neeson (Zeus), Ralph Fiennes (Hades), and Danny Huston (Poseidon).
The sequel doesn’t have a title yet, but it does have a release date: March 30, 2012.
The release states that the story takes place a decade after the last film’s quest, and finds Worthington’s Perseus “attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius.”
More from the release:
Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld.
Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramírez), switch loyalty and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth.
Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Androm eda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
Liebesman will direct from a screenplay by Dan Mazeau & David Leslie Johnson and Steven Knight.
