One remake I am absolutely stoked about is Louis Leterrier’s Clash of the Titans for Warner Bros. Why? Because Greek mythology is loaded with monsters, badass sword fights, scantily clad babes, and yes — more monsters!
As you’d expect, the cast is finally taking shape. Variety reports tonight that Ralph Fiennes is in the final stages of talks to assume the role of Hades, the lord of the underworld, starring opposite Liam Neeson, who is set to co-star as Zeus.
If all goes well, the two actors will be joining Mads Mikkelsen, Gemma Arterton, Alexa Davalos, and Sam Worthington as Perseus in the production, which begins shooting later this month in the U.K.
The storyline will still revolve around the myth of Perseus and his journey to save the Princess Andromeda, during which he must complete various tasks set out by Zeus, including capturing Pegasus and slaying Medusa. Right on!
