Warner Brothers seems to betting that despite the poor reviews that 2010’s Clash Of The Titans remake, the sequel that they have coming to theaters next spring, Wrath Of The Titans, will do better. So much so, in fact, that they have already ordered a script for a projected third installment.
Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson, who co-wrote Wrath’s screenplay with Steven Knight and also share story credit for the film with Greg Berlanti, have been hired by the studio to begin writing a treatment for a third installment in their mythological action series starring Sam Worthington.
Wrath Of The Titans follows the further adventures of Perseus (Worthington) as he defends mortals from the whims of an angry pantheon of Greek gods even though his father Zeus (Liam Neeson) is their leader. Also returning from the first film are Ralph Fiennes and Danny Huston. Joining the cast are Toby Kebbell, Edgar Ramirez, Rosamund Pike and Bill Nighy.
Right now, I have to honestly say that this news doesn’t excite me very much. I found Clash Of The Titans to be a terrible film, the victim of an inordinate amount of studio interference that forced a number of changes that dilluted down the original script. The movie was further harmed by a rushed post-production 3D conversion that was truly abysmal to watch. Wrath Of The Titans is going to have to make up a lot of ground in order to get me even a bit excited at the prospect of a third film in this franchise.
