When the Clash of the Titans remake was announced, we all had a pretty good idea of what the film would be about. After all, why stretch too far from the 1981 Desmond Davis movie? But with a sequel going into production, it's been a mystery as to exactly what the new story would tackle and what characters/actors would return. Today we get the answer.
ScreenRant has received a press release announcing that Clash of the Titans 2 - apparently no longer called Wrath of the Titans - has gone into production, and included is the full cast list and plot details. Set 10 years after Perseus (Sam Worthington) defeated the Kraken, the hero is trying to live a quiet life as a father to his son, Helius. But while this is going on, things are going a bit crazy on Mount Olympus, as the gods can no longer control the imprisoned titans due to the humans' lack of faith. The leader of the titans is Kronos, who also happens to be the father of Zeus (Liam Neeson), Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston). But when Hades and his son Ares (Edgar Ramirez), the god of war, team up to help Kronos capture Zeus, Perseus is called back into action. Bringing a team together that includes Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Argenor (Toby Kebbell), son of Poseidon, and Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), a fallen god, they head into the underworld to rescue Zeus.
One name that you might notice is missing is Gemma Arterton, who is currently filming Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, suggesting that she's known for a while that she wouldn't be involved. Directed by Battle: Los Angeles-helmer Jonathan Liebesman, the film is currently scheduled to be released on March 30, 2012.
