Want more titans clashing? How bout War of the Gods?

02.24.2010

Pointless 3D conversion aside, I'm actually looking forward to CLASH OF THE TITANS. But for those of you out there who can't get enough of that sort of thing can look forward to another similar type film titled WAR OF THE GODS. While it may, at face level, seem like something Aslyum might release to capitalize on the success of TITANS, it's actually yet another big-budget action spectacle from Relativity Media and Universal Pictures.

Freida Pinto and Henry Cavill have signed on to star in the film for director Tarsem Singh with filming set to begin this April. Pinto will star as Phaedra, a priestess who joins up with Theseus (Cavill) to battle against the gods to save mankind. Sound familiar? In some degree of fairness, Relativity has been developing GODS since around the same time Warner Bros. began development on TITANS (they just put that project on the fasttrack and it wound up hitting theaters first).

Normally I might blow off a project like this but I'm willing to at least see what Tarsem can come up with. While it didn't make much of an impact at the box-office, his last film THE FALL was a pleasant surprise and still one of the best Blu-ray experiences I've ever had.

So what do you think? Is the world big enough for both of these films? Should Universal just announce 3D now instead of waiting?

Extra Tidbit: Let's just hope the tagline isn't "Gods...Will...WAR!"

I for one am happy that Universal is making this gig for one simple reason; if they're making "War Of The Gods" now then "God Of War" (also same studio) is probably not on their immediate schedule. At least I HOPE it's not. With the over-saturation of Greek-God movies, I'm hoping they pass on God Of War because it's by far my favorite videogame and it's epic in every way imaginable. I've seen enough of Hollywood to know that there's a 90% chance they'll f**k the movie up if they ever had the

Knowing Tarsem is director makes me anticipate at least a trailer. "The Cell" is not a great movie, but it is still a nightmarish and aesthetically WTF film.
