Clash of the Titans looks just like a summer blockbuster which is being released in April instead. And it’s tracking very well among audiences and could be one of the biggest grossers of the year. But it’s also not the end for the series – it’s a first in a planned trilogy according to director Louis Letterier.
Talking to Firstshowing, he says:
“I wrote two other movies… It was three movies. Warners came to me and said ‘we’ll greenlight your movie if you promise us [two more.]“. You can tell that that story the story doesn’t end at the Clash of the Titans… And I said ‘thanks a lot’ because I love doing that. And I had to write two stories. So Clash of the Titans is, and especially ‘Titans’ is, actually a bigger movie. So ‘Titans’ are coming.”
Of course, the movie will have to do very well for any of this to happen. But the director seems to be optimistic:
“Let’s see, knock on wood, that this will work. And I promise you that I’ve got more. And I’ve got good more. It’s not like I’ve got more of the same, I’ve got more of different, and mythology is just like… We’ve opened the door.” It goes beyond any heroes that you’ve heard of and stuff like that… It’s fun. It’s good! That’s why I was like, great, okay it’s a remake, but the door is open to Greek mythology, so we’ll see!”
Glad to see his enthusiasm. And he’s right about the part that Greek mythology leaves a lot of windows for sequels thanks to its deep roots. I just hope that the next time they actually shoot the film in 3-D.
Clash of the Titans opens April 8th in UAE.
