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. A perversion of 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.

While word of a sequel has many nerds twitching their eyes, I think there may be some hope left in this Pandora box of shit (oh snap! I made a mythology joke).

1. The sequel is being helmed by Jonathan Liebsman. Liebsman’s work include films such as the upcoming ‘Battle: Los Angeles’, ‘The Killing Room‘, and ‘Darkness Falls’ . Not a bad director.

2. 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?

3. Sam Worthington promises “Will Get Clash of the Titans Right Next Time”

Hollywood’s latest action hero said the following in a recent interview (Note: Vulture has the quote, but not the source):

“I just think we can improve on it,” star Sam Worthington said yesterday. “I think the first one, we kind of let down some people. The only point of doing a sequel is either the audience demands it or you believe you can better the first one. What we’re setting out to do with this one — the writers and the director and myself — is improve. I think I can act fucking better, to be honest. Just take all the notes from people that I have been reading about on the ‘net and give them a movie they fucking want. This one I want to kind of try to satisfy a lot more people.”

This coming from a guy who scoffed at the camp and humor of the original with no respect whatsoever for why most people liked it? Excuse me if I don’t entirely trust your intentions sir. Regardless, it is comforting to hear that the crew recognizes that the first flick was a critical failure. Their efforts to improve are admirable. I’m willing to give them another shot.

What do you guys think? Given their supposed intentions to improve, can a second go-around redeem the sins of the first one?

Wrath of the Titans (confirmed title) is scheduled to be released sometime in 2012.
