Jonathan Liebesman Attached to Direct CLASH OF THE TITANS 2
Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures is actually moving forward with a sequel to Clash of the Titans. Why? Because that's how hollywood rolls. Who cares that the first movie sucked, it made a lot of money! So of course they will make a potentially crappy sequel in hopes that it will rake in some more cash.
The studio has hired director Jonathan Liebsman to develop the film. Liebsman's work include films such as the upcoming Battle: Los Angeles, The Killing Room, and Darkness Falls. The guy is a decent director and I've enjoyed his work. Battle: Los Angeles looks like it's going to be awesome, but I just don't have a lot of faith that the sequel will be any better than the first film.
Now Warner Bros. wants to try and do a better job this time around. They plan on shooting the film in 3d instead of converting it. But, as you know 3D doesn't make a movie good. It's all about story and script, which is why they are bringing in some of their best writers to tackle the project such as "Greg Berlanti, one of the writers of Green Lantern, Dan Mazeau, who worked for Warners on The Flash and Jonny Quest, and David Leslie Johnson, writer of Red Riding Hood, the studio’s horror thriller starring Amanda Seyfried, worked together on the treatment, with Mazeau and Johnson now writing the script." Only time will tell if bringing in all these writers to create the story and write the script will pay off.
Sam Worthington and Gemma Arterton are already set to reprise their roles in the sequel. I was always interested in see what Clash of the Titans would be like had it been remade in our day and age, that interest is now gone because the studio killed it with their awful remake. Can they redeem themselves with this sequel? I don't know! Warner Bros. is a solid studio that develops great solid film projects, they just dropped the ball on this one.
What do you all think about Liebesman taking on the directing duties for Clash of the Titans 2?
