Warner Brothers Hires Writer For ‘Clash of the Titans 3′
Once again, Perseus will clash with every God imaginable.
While the first ‘Clash of the Titans’ was mediocre, it was made further awful by the worst 3-D conversion known to mankind and critics lashed out on it for that. But it made money, so the sequel ‘Wrath of the Titans’ is releasing March 2012. And looks like Warner Brothers sees further money in the franchise, since they’ve now hired a writer to pen a third installment.
THR reports that Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson have been hired to pen a third in the series, which will once again star Sam Worthington as Perseus presumably battling out the Gods once again. The second film has a pretty large cast including Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Danny Huston, Edgar Ramirez, Rosamund Pike and Bill Nighy. Here’s the second film’s synopsis for those who don’t know:
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.
No information on what a third movie would be about, but we shall find out soon after this movie opens. While I’m not excited at all about the second film, director Jonathan Liebesman directed ‘Battle: Los Angeles’ which I thoroughly enjoyed and if he can make half the grit from that movie into this one, consider me sold.
