- NO PRINCESS IN TITANS
|Perseus and the Gang|
The Clash of the Titans sequel has went into production, with the plot finally being revealed and the fact that one of the first films’ main characters will not be returning to the film.
Previously the film was reportedly being called Wrath of the Titans but it was called Clash of the Titans 2 in Warner Bros. press release, and will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles), and Sam Worthington of course is back as Perseus, but the beautiful Gemma Arterton (Prince of Persia), who played Io in the first film, apparently will not be back. In a way it does make sense, as her character in the original film was killed off, as to the new ending in last year’s reboot.

Liam Neeson, Danny Huston and Ralph Fiennes are all returning to the cast, while Rosamund Pike joins the group as Andromeda (replacing Alexa Davalos from the original), Edgar Ramirez plays Ares, Toby Kebbell takes on Argenor and Bill Nighy is Hephaestus.
The films plot, "A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus -- the demigod son of Zeus – is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus' godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramírez), switch loyalty and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans' strength grows stronger as Zeus' remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on Earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon's demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
It has been confirmed that there will be a fourth Narnia film, despite the fact that at the box office the franchise has been in decline. The First Narnia film, the Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe, made close to $800 million while the last film, Voyage of the Dawn Treader, only made $300 million.
Reports suggest that it'll be The Magician's Nephew that gets adapted next and not the Silver Chair, which is the next book in the book series.
The Magician's Nephew is a prequel to the first book, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and deals with the creation of Narnia. . . We read the whole series, and we must say that this story has the potential to be a brilliant film, if its done right!!!
