Rodriguez to Clash?

11.05.2007

UPDATE - AICN spoke directly to Rodriguez who says that while he was offered the CLASH OF THE TITANS gig, he turned it down...

I love Robert Rodriguez but why is it the guy's name is attached to half the projects that come out of Hollywood. The latest one to add to the rumor mill is CLASH OF THE TITANS as Latino Review reports Warner Bros. is set to offer Rodriguez the directing gig. In just the past year alone Rodriguez has been rumored to be directing LAND OF THE LOST, THE JETSONS and BARBARELLA. With BARBARELLA in some kind of weird limbo and LAND OF THE LOST given to Brad Silberling, Rodriguez seems to be looking for something to do. Latino stresses that no deal is in place and only an offer at this point. Lawrence Kasdan wrote the script for the CLASH remake and it's clear WB would like to get this into production sometime in early 2008. I say it's probably the smarter move for Rodriguez. Leave BARBARELLA and all the baggage it has wrought behind and just move forward with what would probably be a more entertaining film anyway. Only time will tell though what Rodriguez will be up to. He may decide he wants to attach himself to a remake of STOP OR MY MOM WILL SHOOT! and all this talk will be moot. Stay tuned as the story develops...

Extra Tidbit: Harry Hamlin, star of the original TITANS, again played Perseus in the videogame "God of War II"

Maybe it's a sign he shouldn't be doing remakes at all and possibly even get back to making Sin City 2 which was supposed to been out like twice by now...

That said, Clash of The Titans was an awesome movie. If it's going to be remade at all I'd hope they'd shoot it old school and not with a ridiculous amount of green screen and awful CGI...so yeah RobRod...not the director for the project. Also, Perseus was a guy...so Rose McGowan probably wouldn't fit the role well.

Personal relationships shouldn't hamper professional ones!

I personally don't care that "Barbarella" is being made but irritates the hell out of me he won't do it because he HAS to have his "girlfriend" in the lead role. I love the fact he has made him self, but I think it's sad that now that he has made it he can demand things. There are very few people that can demand anything and their last names are Speilberg and Lucas, not Rodriguez. Besides the original has some of the best nudity I recall as a young man. That would be like remaking "Basic

Im just glad that he is being offered projects, after Grindhouse being a big flop I thought it would be hard for him to get into other project. Planet Terror was one kick ass ride just like everthing else hes done. I always thought Titans was due for a bad ass remake, and I beleive he can pull it off.

Apparently he isn't doing it. He has his own projects he wants to do before the actors strike.

I'm surprised Rodriguez is being courted on all these remakes. I thought he was all about the homage, not the actual thing.

And why is Uwe Boll always the person people think will take up the reins of a bad movie idea. He does video-game-movies, that's pretty much it.

Hang on a minute...

...wasn't Sam Raimi gonna direct this? is this just a WB ploy to attach cool, hip directors to the project before ultimately giving it to Uwe Boll (god forbid!)
