First Look: Tarsem Singh's 'Immortals' Epic with Henry Cavill
Although we just saw Clash of the Titans last month, another new Greek gods epic is on the way, as Indian director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) is currently working on a project called Immortals. Originally titled War of the Gods, this stars Henry Cavill as Theseus and Mickey Rourke as villain King Hyperion. I mention those two specifically because they're included in two of the photos below that were discovered on the IAmRogue.com website (via both SlashFilm & The Playlist). Tarsem has also been recording video blogs that you can check out right here. These aren't the best shots, but they are our very first look at Immortals.
The first shot below shows Tarsem with a big lens on set, and the second shot is of Henry Cavill as Theseus.
Immortals follows the story of warrior prince Theseus as he leads men into battle against imprisoned titans in order to save mankind. It's a $100 million epic and will be converted to 3D in post-production for release by Universal late next year (on November 11th, 2011). Also starring in this is Freida Pinto (seen above) as Phaedra, Stephen Dorff as Stavros, Kellan Lutz as Poseidon, Luke Evans as Zeus, John Hurt as Old Zeus and Isabel Lucas as Athena. "The Gods are like superheroes [in the film]," Tarsem explains in one of the videos. "So they can kind of do what Batman does -- not like Superman -- so you can jump from a high thing and not get hurt by landing down but he can't fly up." Can't wait to see more from this - stay tuned!
