Wrath of the Titans is Underway Already

Principal photography has begun on Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ sequel to 2010's “Clash of the Titans”. Returning stars are Sam Worthington as Perseus, Ralph Fiennes as Hades and Liam Neeson as Zeus. A decade after his heroic defeat of the Kraken, Perseus is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Unknown to him, a struggle for supremacy has started. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their leader, Kronos, father of the brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father, leaving him to rot in Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the underworld. Perseus bravely embarks on a quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind once again.

Jonathan Liebesman directs the film from a screenplay by Dan Mazeau & David Leslie Johnson and Steven Knight, story Greg Berlanti & David Leslie Johnson & Dan Mazeau, based on the 2010 hit “Clash of the Titans” and the 1981 film of the same name, written by the late Beverley Cross. The film is produced by Basil Iwanyk (“The Town”), who also produced the previous “Clash of the Titans,” and Polly Cohen Johnsen (“Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore”). The executive producers are Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, William Fay, Callum McDougall, Kevin De La Noy and Louis Leterrier.

Joining Worthington, Fiennes and Neeson is an international cast. Danny Huston (“Robin Hood”), reprising his role as Poseidon, god of the sea; Edgar Ramírez (“The Bourne Ultimatum”) as the traitorous god of war, Ares; Bill Nighy (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1”) as Hephaestus; Toby Kebbell (“Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”) as Agenor and Rosamund Pike as Andromeda.

The behind-the-scenes team bringing this mythical epic to life includes director of photography Ben Davis (“The Rite”, “Kick Ass”); production designer Charles Wood (“The Italian Job”, “The A-Team”); editor Martin Walsh (“Chicago”, “V for Vendetta”); and costume designer Jany Temime (the “Harry Potter” films). “Clash of the Titans 2” also reunites several talents from the previous film, including Oscar®-nominated visual effects supervisor Nick Davis (“The Dark Knight”); prosthetics supervisor Conor O’Sullivan (“The Dark Knight,” “Saving Private Ryan”) and Academy Award®-winning special effects and animatronics supervisor Neil Corbould (“Gladiator”). Also on board are Oscar®-nominated makeup designer Paul Engelen (“Frankenstein,” “Robin Hood”) and hair designer Kevin Alexander (“Robin Hood,” “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian”).


“Clash of the Titans 2” or "Wrath of the Titans" will be filming in studios outside London and will later shoot on location in Surrey, South Wales and in the Spanish Canary Islands on the island of Tenerife. The film is currently scheduled for release in March 2012.
