Fiennes with Titans

04.08.2009

So far I'm digging how the update of CLASH OF THE TITANS is coming together. The latest mythology twist has already collected Bond gal Gemma Arterton, CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK's sexy Alexa Davalos, CASINO ROYALE eye-bleeder Mads Mikkelsen, and potential / impending star Sam Worthington (AVATAR, TERMINATOR SALVATION) as hero Perseus.

Now the gods-and-monsters flick may add thespian/Potter-hater Ralph Fiennes as the devious Hades, lord of the underworld. He would be facing off against Liam Neeson as brother Zeus (a tiny bit different from their SCHINDLER'S LIST rivalry), though Neeson's participation is still up in the air after the sudden and tragic death of his wife.

The big-budget Warner Bros. project is a remake of the 1981 version (noted for its Harryhausen stop-motion creatures), and follows a hunky hero as he roams a fantastical realm of legendary beasts on his quest for a hot princess. The new script comes from Lawrence Kasdan (RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, EMPIRE STRIKES BACK) and will be directed by Louis Leterrier, whose INCREDIBLE HULK was pretty entertaining until it degenerated into texture-maps and wireframes whacking each other for 20 minutes.

Also, Moviehole says that actor Jason Flemyng (who popped up in Leterrier's TRANSPORTER 2) will also appear in the movie.

Extra Tidbit: Ralph and brother Joseph have shared Cate Blanchett and Rachel Weisz (on screen).

if u dont like CGI , might as well not watch this movie, coz thats what theyre gonna do. Incredible HUlk was loads better than the first one (yawn)

still remember clash of the titans. DAMN .. that was a classic.
hope they wont screw this up.

Neeson , poor dude , with his wife's passing, and all...
but after watching TAKEN .. u know, u just dont wanna f**k with him.
he's the right man to play GOD.

Neeson seems the go to guy for God-like characters (this and Aslan from the Narnia movies).

Ralph would be a great choice for Hades, even though every time I think of Hades I automatically think of James Woods voice from the Hercules movie.

When will people stop bitching about CGI?

The Hulk

What was wrong with The Incredible Hulk? You didn't like the first one cause he didn't fight anybody. This one, gives you a fight and you still piss and moan. The Incredible Hulk was good. Leave it at that.

Totally Jazzed!

Been placing comments after each new tid-bit of "Clash Of The Titans" info gets posted. Totally jazzed for this old favorite of mine from way back in '81-I even bought and read the book before seeing it that year. Can't wait to see this movie -even though it's gonna feel like a decade by the time it gets released.

Bubo ?!

Nothing can compare with the Harryhausen animation but this might pan out. My question is how, if at all, will they be handling Bubo?
