Clash of the Titans is an upcoming 2010 fantasy film which is a remake of the 1981 film of the same name, itself loosely based on the Greek myth of Perseus.[2][3][4] Directed by Louis Leterrier and starring Sam Worthington, the film was originally set for standard release on March 26, 2010.[3][4] It was later announced that the film would be converted to 3-D and released on April 2, 2010.[5][6]

Plot

Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.[2][3][4]

Cast

Production

The Clash of the Titans remake began development in 2002 under producer Adam Schroeder and writers John Glenn and Travis Wright. They wanted to drop the element of the gods playing chess.[13] Producer Basil Iwanyk revived the project in 2006 with a rewrite by Travis Beacham, a fan of the original.[14] Lawrence Kasdan and director Stephen Norrington signed on in 2007.[15] But Norrington was unsure about his direction for the project, because he did not grow up with the original. Leterrier, who did, contacted Norrington through their shared agent about replacing him by June 2008.[16][17] Leterrier noted the original Clash of the Titans inspired the climax of his previous film The Incredible Hulk – a battle in a burnt-down courtroom with temple-like columns – and has compared modern superheroes to Greek mythology.[18][19] Writers Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi reworked Kasdan's script,[20] which had been written with an R rating in mind.[21]

Leterrier sought Ray Harryhausen's involvement,[16] and reunited with Hulk concept artist Aaron Sims, who had already been working on Clash of the Titans with Norrington. Sims had difficulty designing Medusa, explaining "Are they all the same snake [in her hair]? Do they look more like hair? Are they different in silhouette or in light? And how much of a human face does she have, or is it more like a snake?...I was working on one design, and people said 'That reminds me of Voldemort,’ because there was no nose. You have to be careful so it still looks like it's an original idea."[22] Filming began April 27, 2009, in London at Shepperton Studios. Filming also took place in Wales and the Canary Islands, primarily in Tenerife, while aerial photography was to be conducted in Iceland and Ethiopia.[2]

Filming of volcano scenes at the Harriet hole in Dinorwic Slate Quarry in Wales wrapped at the end of July.[23] This slate quarry has also been used for locations for Willow and Street Fighter.[24]

3-D conversion and release

Clash of the Titans was originally set for standard release on March 26, 2010.[3][4] The Heat Vision Blog reported on January 27, 2010 that after a 3-D conversion test of the film which Warner Bros. found to be a "roaring success," the film would be converted to 3-D and would premiere on April 2, 2010.[5][6]

Rating

On March 17, 2010, the MPAA gave the movie a PG-13 rating "for fantasy action violence, some frightening images, and brief sensuality" two weeks before the film's release.[citation needed]

Video game

A video game adaptation of the film is being developed by Game Republic and will be published by Namco Bandai Games America Inc. and Warner Bros. Interactive. The game will allow players to take the role of Perseus and follow a story based on the film. The game's release is set to be around the same time as the film.[25]

iTunes application

Secret Squirrel Studios has released an iTunes application that covers the basic plot of the film and provides background details of the mythological characters and creatures on which the film is based.[26]
