'Percy Jackson and the Olympians' Sequel Could Be Coming Soon?
Though director Chris Columbus may be lining up a remake to the Korean film Hello Ghost, that doesn't mean the franchise he kicked off isn't moving forward. 24 Frames reports Fox is beginning to develop a sequel to Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, the adaptation of the first book in a five-book series from Rick Riordan. This time around the second book, The Sea of Monsters, would be Percy Jackson's subtitle and adventure. While Columbus probably won't come back as a director, he will still produce. In addition, Logan Lerman is indeed expected to reprise the titular role of the demigod hero.
Right now the film is only in active development with no set start production date, but the studio could get the project off the ground as early as this summer. The first film introduced the hero who discovers that he is the son of the Greek god Poseidon with all the water powered perks that come with his bloodline. The sequel would follow Percy and his group of friends as they head to the Sea of Monsters to find the mythical Golden Fleece and to free a friend who has been captured there. Honestly, I thought the first flick was pretty wretched, so I can't say a sequel gets me excited at all. What about you?
