Clash Of The Titans 2 Starts Next Feb
Titans will clash. Again. Probably.

13 July 2010  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: Production Weekly

Louis Leterrier's remake of Clash Of The Titans was decent fun, all things considered. And when you realise that 'all things considered' includes a less-than-brilliant last-minute 3D retrofit job, massive changes to the script during production and post that led to most of the Gods, including the legendary Danny Huston as Poseidon, getting the chop, and the worst tagline in recorded human history, decent fun is about the best Lulu - as The Stath calls him, and who are we to argue with The Stath about stupid nicknames? - could have hoped for.

But so far, probably the only people who've been clamouring for a Clash sequel work in the accounting department at Warner Bros. Yet that's exactly what was announced following the film's impressive global haul of $491 million. And, thanks to a tweet from those bods at Production Weekly, we now know that the sequel has been tentatively pencilled in for a start date of February, 2011.

So, presumably, we can expect to see the finished article sometime in early 2012. Or, if the pressure is really put on, it could even be a contender for a Christmas slot next year.

Better start getting in shape, Kraken - you've only got seven months to go.

Sam Worthington
was the biggest problem with Clash of the Titans - the man's so overated! And i didn't like the fact that they cut out Danny Houston and seemingly loads of other guff out of the movie. That said, i'm going to be a complete hypocrite now and admit that regardless of these things i quite enjoyed the movie (it ticked all the boxes as far as summer popcorn flicks go) and I would be quite interested in seeing a sequel. I would also like to see as directors cut of the first one with Danny Houston and More

Get them to the Greek
Greek mythology is so rich, a 'Clash' sequel could have potential, if they can mine an interesting story out of it in time. I thought the remake was for the most part a dispiritingly flat experience, although it seemed to improve toward the last act and the iconic Medusa scenes were fun. Sadly, despite its cheese factor, the original 'Clash' was a better movie in my opinion. New writers and someone to push Worthington in the acting department would be nice - which he seems to desire anyway. More

Pointless...
Totally pointless. Their last minute 3D job was crap, the film did feel short, so getting rid of certain actors' play time was a bad idea too. I feel for Danny Huston. LuLu, I'm going to release The Stath onto you. More
