We already wrote some stuff
about War of the Gods
and Dawn of War
, but we’re here now to write some interesting things about an upcoming mythology-spectacle titled Immortals
! That’s confusing, right?
Ok, we’re joking, this is the same movie, but now it will be called Immortals
. You get it? War of Gods is Immortal, and Immortal is Dawn of War. Easy thing to remember!
Hm, how should we start this… This movie is currently in production and Relativity Media sent out a press release letting everyone know that they’ve made a few major changes.
As we know now
, War of Gods will now be called Immortals and two actors have joined the the growing cast including Oscar nominee John Hurt
and Isabel Lucas
So, you already know that this big Hollywood project will center on young warrior Theseus (we also mentioned that Henry Cavill
will play him), who leads his men into battle with the immortal Greek gods to defeat the evil and powerful elder gods of the Titans in order to save mankind.
will have an honour to play film’s villain King Hyperion, while Frieda Pinto
will play Phaedra, an oracle priestess who aids the young warrior on his quest.
will be taking on the role of Zeus as an old man while Luke Evans
will star as young Zeus. Isabel Lucas
will play goddess of wisdom and strategy, Athena, or, as they describe her: ”the daughter of Zeus who finds her loyalty tested as the war between the gods and Titans looms.”
It’s going to be interesting seeing 25 year old Lucas in this kind of role.
Immortals will also stars Kellan Lutz
as Poseidon, Robert Maillet
as Minotaur, Stephen Dorff
as Stavros, Corey Sevier
as Apollo, Steve Byers
as Heracles, Romano Orzari
as Icarus among others.
Anyway, Tarsem Singh
‘s movie is already in principal photography and already has a release date – November 11, 2011, and this re-titled thing is probably something like an attempt to distance the film from Clash of the Titans
On the other hand we are witnesses that Greek mythology is a growth trend in Hollywood, so it’s kind of interesting to see how this battle-for-a-good-title continues in real life. So, stay tuned!
