Clash of the Titans

Today Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures announced the beginning of principal photography on what has been referred to as Wrath of the Titans, but within the press release is still being called the sequel to Clash of the Titans. In addition, original cast members returning for the sword and sandals sequel have also been revealed. As expected, Sam Worthington will be reprising his role as our Greek demi-god hero Perseus and Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson are both back as the gods Hades and Zeus respectively. Even more of the film's original cast members returning can be found below along with the film's official plot synopsis.

Here's the sequel's plot according to Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures press release:

A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus—the demigod son of Zeus—is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius.

Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld.

Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramírez), switch loyalty and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth.

Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.

Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles) is at the helm of this sequel which also sees the return of Danny Huston (Robin Hood), reprising his role as Poseidon, god of the sea, Edgar Ramírez (The Bourne Ultimatum) as the god of war, Ares, Bill Nighy (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest) as Hephaestus, whose twisted, lame figure belies his Olympian origins, Toby Kebbell (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) as Agenor, imprisoned thief and son of Poseidon who joins Perseus on his journey to Tartarus and Rosamund Pike (Barney’s Version) as Andromeda, the princess whose life Perseus once saved, and who now, as a queen, follows Perseus into battle. Sorry, but I guess there's no room for Gemma Arterton to come back to deliver more exposition. Sound good?

    Why dont you just call him Kratos give him massive weapons and make him kill everyone! Seem to have stolen most of the God of War plot already.
    • KeyNeezy
      or the plot of, oh say, greek mythology?...

    I'll see it, the first one was ruined by Leterrier...so perhaps Liebesman will repair it. I like the idea Perseus being a single parent, I just hope the boy they cast can act, many sequels are ruined by a child actor...so we'll see.

    Strange. Neeson was on The Graham Norton Show (UK chat show) a couple of weeks back and joined the chat show mid-way through as he came straight from shooting Wrath of the Titans at Shepperton Studios. Perhaps they were doing costume fitting then. Link (FF to 2m 30s): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6phsgzyFzQ&feature=related

    Ha anyone here noticed that this story is a rip-off the god of war videogame franchise??? But lame.

      not really...I mean sure there are similarities, but not many. One its not a a man who murdered his wife and child who is trying to kill Aries, or Zeus, or the other Gods of Olympus.
  • bubo
    Story sounds good... as long it's not a complete mess like Clash was. Perseus needs recasting, though. Worthington is a block of wood who doesn't even bother to try covering up his Aussie accent.
