Producer Talks About Clash Of The Titans 2 And Other Absolutely Horrible News
Everyone and their mother is up in Toronto (including our own S.T. VanAirsdale!) for all the film festival hi-jinkieries. While braving our Commie-Pinko-Socialistic Neighbor to the North, ComingSoon sat down with Basil Iwanyk, producer of Clash of the Titans, who gave the depressing news that the sequel is in the works.
Jonathan Liebesman, director of the upcoming Battle: Los Angeles, is reportedly taking on the thankless duty of shoehorning whatever piddle is in the script into some vaguely recognizable form of movie. However, even though the last movie was a hideous exercise in everything wrong with filmmaking today, Basil Iwanyk (whose name can be unscrambled to spell "Swanky Alibi"), claims they have learned their lesson: "It's a huge movie and we want to do a much better job on it. Listen, we're prideful people and we want to win and the 3D really helped us in a lot of ways, but we also took a lot of heat for it."
Iwaynk (who is not a filthily-named Bond parody but a real person) also revealed that most of the original cast will be back, including Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, and the Large Sentient Pile of Pudding (who uses "Sam Worthington" as a stage name). The sequel is scheduled to begin filming in February 2011, so if you've got a hankering for murkily-shot actions scenes, important characters that disappear 30 minutes into the story, hastily cobbled together romantic arcs and an insanely dull hero that could be readily replaced by a stack of tennis balls with no discernible loss of charisma or chemistry, then circle 2012 on your calenders, true believers!
