Wraths of the Titans doesn’t hit until March 30, 2012 but Warner Bros. isn’t wasting any time in developing the third film, as they’ve hired writers to get started on the script.
According to THR:
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.
Nothing is known story-wise, but it’s expected the third film will continue to follow Perseus, played by Sam Worthington. THR notes that “the second movie leaves the door open” for some characters to return, but we won’t know which until next March. Here’s the synopsis for Wraths of the Titans:
A decade after defeating the Kraken, Perseus (Sam Worthington) cannot ignore his true calling when Hades (Ralph Fiennes), along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramírez), switch loyalty and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus (Liam Neeson). The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth.
Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
We only have 4 months until Wraths of the Titans hits, so we can expect some promotion to begin soon. Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles) is directing, but no word yet on whether he’ll return for the third film.
