The remake of Clash of the Titans is still a go, no matter how much voodoo and black/white magic I dabble in to make it go away. Damn you, forces of darkness, why won’t you do my bidding?
Variety reports this morning that Clash now has some competition in the realm of big-budget Greek mythology green screen movies: War of Gods, which has Tarsem (The Cell, The Fall) Singh on board to direct. Incredible Hulk helmer Louis Leterrier is attached to the Clash remake, so perhaps the two could just fight it out Thunderdome-style?
Relativity Media’s War of Gods is set in ancient Greece (duh) and tells of a young warrior who leads his men against an evil so great, it pits man against demons and titans. Sign me up! Warner Bros.’ Clash of the Titans is, of course, about Perseus, son of Zeus, who has to go through a series of challenges in order to rescue his beloved Andromeda.
Though I’m sure it’ll be pleasing to the eyeballs of most who go see it, nothing will take the place of Ray Harryhausen’s masterful stop-motion animation in the original Clash, so they had damn well get everything else right.
Clash of the Titans and War of Gods are both fast-tracked projects at their respective studios so it should be fun to see which one makes it out first!
