CLASH OF THE TITANS Sequel In Development

Ugh.

Despite horrible reviews, Clash Of The Titans has managed to earn almost $390 million worldwide at the box office, so it should come as no surprise that studio Warner Brothers is certainly anxious for a sequel. The studio has already tapped Greg Berlanti to write a script with hopes that they can get the film into theaters by the spring of 2012.

However, don’t expect Louis Leterrier to return to the director’s chair for the follow up. According to Deadline, Leterrier’s departure was “harmonious” and was explained away as him not being anxious to dive back into production on another film right away. But when you factor in the stories of reshoots and editing room interference from the studio, it perhaps isn’t so surprising that he declined to participate in the rush to get a second installment cranked out in just 24 months.

And speaking of those reshoots, I’m a little surprised that Warners didn’t just decide to cobble together a second feature from the reportedly copious amount of left over footage littering the editing room floor.

I suppose that there is a bright side to a Clash sequel, though. Since Warners is  intent on having their major tentpole releases all be lensed in 3D, then a second installment will be shot for the process and will not suffer from the shoddy, computerized, post-production transformation from 2 to 3D that the first film did.
