If the trailer we got for Clash of the Titans last week is anything to go by we are in for an epic treat next March, which will make it Sam Worthington’s second epic in the space of 4 months following the release of Avatar.
The L.A Times spoke to the actor about Titans recently while he was promoting Avatar, and he said that they will be re-shooting some scenes in a few weeks time. However, it isn’t anything to worry about.
The 33-year-old actor said that Warners, pleased with what they saw of Leterrier’s work, had increased the budget for the film.
“We’re going to be going back and shooting more scenes for it, they cut loose with some money so we can add to it,” Worthington told me as we sat in the green room. Worthington went on: “We’re going to be shooting more scenes in January, so we’re going to be right up against it — the movie comes out in March.”
I had to ask: Is it really enthusiasm that is behind the mad scramble? From the outside, last-minute returns to the set look like signs of trouble. Worthington conceded that the January labors will help fix up some problem areas of the film, but he insisted that the new money and the new filming opportunity are signs that Warners and the producers are setting their sights higher for the film.
“There were some creaky parts but they are the parts that we knew were creaky and that we knew were going to be creaky going into it. The studio is also letting us add some gods and scenes. And they’re talking about making the movie a 3D film.”
Whatever more “gods and scenes” involves, I’m up for it!
