Leterrier set to Clash

Warner Bros. has set INCREDIBLE HULK director Louis Leterrier to direct their remake of CLASH OF THE TITANS, which the studio has put on the fast-track. The studio is looking to beat a competing project - Tarsem Singh's WAR OF GODS - to the starting line. CLASH has a script the studio loves from Lawrence Kasdan (RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK) and greenlit the project as soon as they were able to get Leterrier to sign on the dotted line. Before you expect a big-budget extravaganza, expect TITANS (and WAR OF GODS for that matter) to use the ole 300 green-screen style to create the ancient settings while keeping a modest budget. BLADE director Stephen Norrington has original scheduled to step out of retirement to direct TITANS but may have started to experience some LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN post traumatic stress and he eventually left the project. The original 1981 film starred Harry Hamlin and Lawrence Olivier and featured the stop-motion work of FX legend Ray Harryhausen. While it has been fast-tracked, it's unclear when it would begin production as work out of Hollywood has it that almost all studio productions will temporarily stop next week in anticipation of the SAG strike.

About CGI

I have nothing against CGI as long as it looks real and blend into the enviroment. Which is pretty much where today's standard is.

I'm incredibly tired of CGI orgies, but Lawrence Kasdan is the greatest screenwriter of all time...

Clash of the Titans might be one of the more sensible remakes.

I'm just glad Tarsem's got a project on the way that the competing studio's actually afraid of.

What? No... For real?

Okay, Leterrier is good. But not that good. This project is too big for him. Get someone else.
