The new Greek mythology film War of the Gods got a new title today. Relativity Media has now changed the title to Immortals. This is the film that Tarsem Singh (The Fall) is currently directing.
Immortals follows the mythological tale of the young warrior Theseus, who leads his men into battle with the immortal Greek gods to defeat evil and the powerful elder gods of the Titans in order to save mankind.
The cast of the film includes John Hurt, Isabel Lucas, Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, Joseph Morgan, Freida Pinto and Mickey Rourke in the cast. Hurt will portray the earthly manifestation of the god Zeus, who acts as a mentor and teacher to the young warrior Theseus (Cavill). Isabel Lucas was brought onto Immortals as Athena, the daughter of Zeus who finds her loyalty tested as the war between the gods and Titans looms.
I’m sure this Greek mythology film will end up being a lot better than Louis Leterrier’s Clash of the Titans, it doesn’t seem like that would be a hard thing to do.
Immortals is set to be released on November 11, 2011.
