From a Bond girl to a princess (Prince of Persia) and now to a goddess. The first photo of British actress Gemma Arterton is costume on the set of Louis Leterrier's Clash of the Titans has been revealed over at Gemma Arterton Online. Unlike the last two photos we posted, this one is not official, it's another shot from the set, but it looks great anyway. Her character, named Io, wasn't actually in the original movie. In this remake, she is Perseus' love interest, but besides that we don't know much about her. Even if there's not much to see, it's at least a beautiful photo. Leterrier really found some amazing locations to this shoot at.
Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny. Louis Leterrier is directing from a script by Lawrence Kasdan (Raiders of the Lost Ark).
