Yes, the remake of Clash of the Titans was pretty terrible, and we’ve gotten some really big promises for its upcoming sequel, but we have to admit we’re kind of surprised by this latest bit of news. A third film in the now franchise is already in the works.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Brothers, which is in post-production with Legendary Pictures on Wrath of the Titans, is developing the next installment of the franchise which was inspired by the Greek myths, even though Wrath doesn’t open until March 30, 2012.
Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson, who co-wrote Wrath’s screenplay with Steven Knight and also share story credit with Greg Berlanti, have been enlisted to develop and write a treatment for the threequel, which would continue the adventures of Perseus, played by Sam Worthington.
Insiders say that Agenor, a sidekick-like character played by Toby Kebbell, may also figure into the new story, as the second movie leaves the door open for the character’s return.
The producing team behind Wrath, Basil Iwanyk and Polly Johnsen among it, would return for the new installment should it go forward as would Wrath‘s Jonathan Liebesman, though no deals are in place.
The remake, directed by Louis Leterrier, grossed $163 million domestically and a whopping $330 million overseas.
Wrath reunites Worthington with Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes and Danny Huston as Greek gods and throws in actors Edgar Ramirez, Rosamund Pike and Bill Nighy among others.
