Back in September it was revealed that Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson will be reprising their roles of Hades and Zeus in the sequel to Clash of the Titans, which has been given the title Wrath of the Titans. This was welcomed news as they both great actors, and I thought they were underused in the first film, Neeson especially.
In a recent interview Neeson spoke about the script, which is currently being worked on, and confirmed filming will begin next March.
From The Belfast Telegraph:
“I’ve only read half of the script and there is still some work being done – they’re on script 10 – but I think it’s going to be some kick-a** stuff and a very human story to it,” he said.
“We will start next March. I’m very much looking forward to it. It’s a whole revamping, you know,” he added.
Asked if Wrath Of The Titans, which will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman, would be shot in 3D, he said: “I don’t know the answer to that.”
Neeson might not know, but Sam Worthington confirmed earlier this year that it will be shot in 3D. The actor is aware of the criticism the first film got for the rushed 3D conversion, and wants to let everyone know the next one will be done the James Cameron way.
Wrath of the Titans will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles) and will also see Gemma Arterton return as Io. Dan Mazeau (worked on The Flash script for Warner Bros.) and David Johnson (Red Riding Hood) have been working alongside Green Lantern writer Greg Berlanti on the script, so it should be an improvement on the first film.
