It’s no secret that the nerdbastards crew hated, with a passion Louis Leterrier’s remake of Clash of the Titans. Not only did it butt fuck the original 80’s version but it completely raped the ideology of the mythology. It was an unbearable, soulless, disaster that perverts literature and the very idea of story telling. Regardless of how bad it was, it made a lot of money. And thus, where there is money there is the inevitable sequel.
Much to our dismay, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures are in fact moving forward with a sequel to Clash of the Titans. 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. OK, not a bad director but still.
Scribing (that’s insider talk for writing a script) the film will “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. Gee, not one, not two, but 3 writers? Anyone over at Warner Bros. hear the term “2’s company 3’s a crowd”? Given that not one of these guys has any previous solid writing cred it’s not hopeful that they will develop a good story and script. But, I could be wrong.
There is some slight good news. Warner Bros. wants to do a better job with the 3D this time around. They plan on shooting the film in 3d instead of converting it. Eh, at least that’s a plus, right?
What do you guys thing? Are you at all excited about this? Clearly, we are not. The studio dropped the ball with the first one and it’s unlikely they will redeem themselves with a second.
