Just as Jonathan Liebesmen’s turning heads with that Battle: Los Angeles trailer, the Krackens are getting leashed for his next project, the boldly-titled Wrath of the Titans. Liam Neeson recently confirmed to the Belfast Telegraph that he’ll be returning as big pappy Zeus in this sequel to Clash, thusly uttering...
So he shall return, as will Worthington, Arterton and Fiennes (though, wasn’t Hades vanquished?) More Olympic sons would show up, too, with talks of Javier "Kill You with a Gas Cannister" Bardem as the god of war, Ares, and James “Back to School” Franco as Agenor, the son of Poseidon. I've never heard of the latter before, so they're digging deeper into the mythology on this (and if you know even a little about me, you’ll know I’m a nut for this stuff and can, thus, vouch.)
"I've only read half of the script and there is still some work being done - they're on script 10 - but I think it's going to be some kick-ass stuff and a very human story to it… We will start next March. I'm very much looking forward to it. It's a whole revamping, you know."
With the yearly “Best of” lists coming up and the first Clash riffing on the same themes, I figure it's appropriate to add that I really consider God of War III to be one of the best movies I’ve seen all year. I felt the same way about #2 in '07. Those games give you all the spectacle and grandeur you want out of a blockbuster, but actually couple it with an uncompromising, take-no-prisoners story that no committee would ever approve (not in a million years!) People say that playing Uncharted feels like playing a movie. GOW3 feels like playing an NC-17 IMAX.
