Nathan Fillion joins Percy Jackson sequel

3 years agoby:

Nathan Fillion, known to many as the star of ABC's crime procedural CASTLE and to the rest of us as Captain Malcolm Reynolds in FIREFLY and SERENITY, has joined the cast of the upcoming sequel PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS.

The story follows Percy Jackson, and his friends Annabeth Chase, Clarisse La Rue and Tyson, his half brother, on a journey in the Sea of Monsters to retrieve the legendary Golden Fleece and save Camp Half-Blood.

The original PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS grossed $226 million at the box office worldwide, it only hit $88 million stateside.  Not exactly sequel worthy numbers.

Nathan Fillion will play Hermes, father to antagonist Luke (Jake Abel).  The role of Hermes was played by Dylan Neal in the original film.

I have gotten so used to him playing the Han Solo-type guy, it may be nice to see Fillion take on a darker, more villanous role.

No word on whether Pierce Brosnan, Uma Thurman, Steve Coogan, Sean Bean, or Rosario Dawson will be back in any capacity.

Extra Tidbit: I am still waiting on a follow up to DR HORRIBLE.

Cool

As a dad, you are forced into seeing some truly awful movies (Furry Vengeance being the worst for me thus far) but my kids and I really loved the original Percy Jackson. It was a very solid kids movie. Glad they are making a sequel and hope its as good. And I hope Rosario Dawson shows up again, just for dads.

288 is bad?

So 288 million was a bad thing for this movie? It made a ton of money for the franchise and it is bad? I seem to remember that "Batman Begins" did not have a great "US income" and now look at it. No offense JoBlo but it is rude for you to act that way. Stop looking at just the US box office. Just because a movie/band/play/etc fails in the US does not mean its bad. Every country is different. You're bitching at how Oldboy made no money in the US and now it is being remade for the US and still

I was excited when I read "Nathan Fillion joins..." because its exciting to see him get more work. But I could really care less about this movie.

Plus Fillion seems like hes put on some weight this season of Castle. I know hes getting older and all, but maybe this will prompt him to lose a few. He has outgrown a lot of those key roles people keep suggesting him for.

Well if you could care less than you might have some interest in it... now if you COULDN'T care less... then you don't give a shit about it at all.

Cool. My kids forced me to watch Jack and Jill last night. I still hurt from the awful. The first Percy was actually a fun take on Greek mythology (although they never explained why they thought he was the thief!), so I'll def take them to this one.

I didn't even know they were making a sequel to the original. The first wasn't bad. Hopefully this one will be better.

Meh, first one was all right. Half expected a sequel, but I'm also a little surprised, considering how lackluster the first film was. The new Harry Potter this series is not.

Automatically became better than the first.

The world needs more Fillion...in anything & everything. That said, what planet do we live in that Nathan Fillion can't have a proper movie to leading in?

Yeah baby

Ask me what made the first movie so good, and I couldn't tell you to save my life. It was just really entertaining, that's the only way to put it. If they can recreate that magic, well they've got a much bigger hit on their hands this time. Side note, can't imagine Uma Thurman being back...didn't they kill Medusa? Pierce Brosnan, if Camp Half-Blood is involved, will def be back. Cant wait

I know I'll get killed for this...

I can't stand Nathan. It seems that Hollywood is bound to make him a star. He annoys the hell out of me.

Discounting you opinion of him, Hollywood is DEFINITELY not out to make Nathan Fillion a star. From what I have seen, quite the opposite actually.
