Relativity Media announced today that they’ve finally made their mind up and have decided to call Tarsem Singh’s 3D Greek fantasy Immortals. Up until now the film has been going by the name War of the Gods, however IMDB and various other places have been calling it Dawn of War.
Immortals is a cool name, although I thought War of the Gods would have been a more epic title. I suppose they didn’t want to be confused with the God of War movie currently in development, and Dawn of War is a popular video game which could have caused conflict.
Immortals is currently filming in Montreal and stars Henry Cavill as Theseus, Freida Pinto as oracle Phaedra, Mickey Rourke as King Hyperion and Kellan Lutz as Poseidon. Recently it was announced that Stephen Dorff, John Hurt, and Isabel Lucas had joined the cast. Dorff plays a master thief named Stavros who joins Theseus (Cavill) in his battle against the immortal Greek gods. John Hurt will play the earthly manifestation of Zeus, who acts as a mentor and teacher to Theseus, and Isabel Lucas (hot robot lady from Transformers 2) will play his daughter Athena.
Last week Relativity Media set the release date for November 11th 2011.
