Missi Pyle and Yvette Nicole Brown Join the 'Percy Jackson' Sequel
Last summer we learned that Hotel for Dogs and Diary of a Wimpy Kid director Thor Freudenthal would be behind the sequel Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Sea of Monsters with Agent Cody Banks and Ed Wood writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski scripting. However, no cast beyond returning stars Logan Lerman (as out titular hero), Alexandra Daddario and Brandon T. Jackson were known. Now THR has word that Missi Pyle (The Artist) Yvette Nicole Brown ("Community") and Mary Birdsong (The Descendants) will play the three fates, white-robed personifications of destiny in Greek myth. Read on!
As we learned last summer though, the adventure will indeed 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, but this sequel is expected to take some cues from the other books as well. "Big Love" co-star Douglas Smith is also supposed to have a supporting role, but his character has not yet been revealed. Hopefully, much like Alfonso Cuaron and other directors expanded upon Chris Columbus' launch of the Harry Potter franchise, so too can Freudenthal do the same with Percy Jackson.
