Liam Neeson Says Clash Of The Titans Sequel Shoots In March
Liam Neeson, who hasn't met a silly blockbuster he didn't want to be part of, is gearing up to star in next year's Clash of the Titans sequel, which was rumored back in November to be titled Wrath of the Titans and possibly star Javier Bardem as Ares and James Franco as Agenor, father of Europa. When the Belfast Telegraph caught up with Neeson recently he couldn't confirm any casting rumors, but he did let them know that the sequel, to be directed by Jonathan Liebesman, will kick off in early March:
"We will start next March. I'm very much looking forward to it. It's a whole revamping, you know. I've only read half of the script and there is still some work being done - they're on script 10 - but I think it's going to be some kick-a** stuff and a very human story to it."
For all the grief the first Clash of the Titans got about its incoherent script, it's hilarious to me that the sequel seems to be going through the same cobbled-together process, and that they're handing out half-finished versions to the cast. As much faith I have in director Liebesman, who brought us next spring Battle: Los Angeles and seems to have real talent, this sequel seems to be following the same doomed track as the first film. Hopefully Neeson will at least once again look like he's having a ridiculous amount of fun, especially if they put him in another suit of glowing armor and give him a line half as crazy as "Release the Kraken!"
