Watch never-before-seen videos from the set of the upcoming “Clash of the Titans” which is remake of 1981 original directed by Desmond Davis.
The remake is directed by Louis Letettier from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan.
“Clash of the Titans”stars Sam Worthington as Perseus, Gemma Arterton as Perseus’ love interest Io, Ralph Fiennes as Hades, Liam Neeson as Zeus – Hades’ brother and father of Perseus, Danny Huston as Poseidon, Mads Mikkelsen as Draco, Alexa Davalos as Andromeda, Jason Flemyng, Izabella Miko, Nicholas Hoult and Pete Postlethwaite.
“Even though we shot on locations that are big and epic themselves, you put that together with cutting-edge CG, it should give an exciting ride,” Worthington told MTV News.
Gemma Arterton described the role as “the coolest part”.
“Io’s not in the original film. Perseus falls in love with her… It’s a really great part,” she told.
Arterton also said that in contrast to the 1981 original – Harry Hamlin played Perseus – this one is “much more about Perseus’ mission:
“And how he deals with being the son of Zeus, and things like that. So it feels a little more about him, and about the issues around that…The script is very different”
“It sounds like a reasonable, good idea to remake a film where it’s the same kind of story, but you actually have big increases in the capacity of what computers can do today,” Mads Mikkelsen said.
Synopsis: In the movie, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Neeson) and unleash hell on earth.
