Dump Truck-Sized Scorpions Coming in Clash of the Titans!
I'm a die-hard Clash of the Titans fan and have been covering the upcoming remaking closely, mainly because I think it'll kick ass. They've been shooting for a few months in England but we haven't heard much recently, most likely because they've got a tight lid on it. However, MTV interviewed Sam Worthington on the set recently and got this juicy little tidbit out of him. "What these guys and Louis [Leterrier] have set out to do is raise the richter [scale] to 11, in the sense of, the scorpions are the size of dump trucks, Medusa is a lot quicker and a lot more scarier, and the whole world itself is… big and epic in scope." Sounds awesome!
In the original 1981 Clash of the Titans, Perseus battles some "giant" scorpions (seen above) after he defeats Medusa and collects her head. Not only does this confirm that they seem to be following the original closely, but this is just awesome to hear! Worthington must have recently shot scenes involving Medusa which is why all of that was fresh on his mind. Those following this really closely may remember seeing paparazzi set photos of a giant scorpion back in July - you can see the photo here. That one looks dead, but it at least gives us a sense of the size and design of them. Damn I can't wait for this, it sounds better the more we hear!
