Rosamund Pike will take over the role of Andromeda in the Clash of the Titans sequel. Alexa Davalos played the character in the remake but apparently can't make the time commitment needed to star in the second movie. Andromeda was a minor character in the first film, the beautiful woman who was to be sacrificed to the Kraken, but her role is greatly expanded in the new movie.- Deadline. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Actor Liam Neeson provided an update on where the Clash of the Titans sequel is to The Belfast Telegraph, confirming reports that the second film is titled Wrath of the Titans. "I've only read half of the script and there is still some work being done - they're on script 10 - but I think it's going to be some kick-ass stuff and a very human story," Mr. Zeus himself told the outlet.
Neeson added that he believes the film will start filming in March 2011 but was unsure if the picture will be filmed in 3D. The Telegraph also printed the rumors that James Franco and Javier Bardem were in talks to play Agenor, the son of Poseidon and Ares, the god of war, respectively.- The Belfast Telegraph.

Jonathan Liebesman has been confirmed as the director of Clash of the Titans 2. According to THR's Heat Vision blog, the contract negotiations went over the length of the summer because Liebesman held out for a higher quote and he used the good buzz on the early footage from Battle: Los Angeles to position himself as a quality candidate to redeem Clash 2. While still a box office succes, the first movie experienced a wave of negative criticism due to its poor post-3D conversion. Liebesman plans on circumnavigating that problem with the sequel by filming it using 3D cameras.- The Hollywood Reporter. Comment on this Scoop (0)

While talking with the press about his new comic book venture, Sam Worthington also commented on what's happening with the development of the story for Clash of the Titans 2. "They came to me with the story the other day. I said, 'I kinda dig where it's going, but can we make the character more of this? Can we make the character more of that?' It's kind of a case of, 'How do we make Perseus a lot more fun?' So we're sort of shaping it down that track. And Warner Bros. has been nice enough to allow us to have a bit of input."
Worthington also said that he definately wants the sequel to be filmed in proper 3D, and that he wants Perseus to "play a lot more and have a lot more fucking fun than just being a stoic young man who has to stand there and look pretty. I'm sick of doing that."- Chud. Comment on this Scoop (0)

The two are working with Greg Berlanti, a Green Lantern screenwriter, on the treatment for Clash of the Titans 2. Once that is vetted by WB, then Mazeau and Johnson will begin penning the screenplay.- The Hollywood Reporter. Comment on this Scoop (0)
