That’s a shame. While the first Clash of the Titans film made money, it was derided both for its narrative engagement and the technical hiccup of its quick 3-D conversion. The follow-up, Wrath of the Titans, somehow managed to be less well-thought of and actually made less money than Clash. So that’s the end of that right? Well, not so fast. And I mean that literally and figuratively. In a new interview with IGN, Clash and Wrath producer Basil Iwanyk said that there is interest, but there will only be a third Clash when there’s time enough to undertake it.
Here’s Iwanyk’s quote about Clash of the Titans 3:
Not at this point, but you never know. In terms of Clash of the Titans 3, it’s one of those situations where we’ve seen it a million times; a movie will kind of float away and then come back when it’s supposed to come back. You’d think that there was three and a half, four years of nonstop Clash of the Titans activity, and I think it is, “Okay, what’s the new idea? How do you make it fresh?” You know, a lot of movies have come out in that world, including Immortals and 300. So there will be a time and place where someone will come up with a great idea for it and how to make it feel different and fresh from the previous ones. Then we’ll hopefully move forward on that.
If “sometime” is too long a wait for more Titans, which itself is a remake of the cult classic 1981 film, Iwanyk has another mythology based project int he works, a film starring Gerard Butler called Gods of Egypt that is to be directed by Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City). It should be ready for theaters sometime in 2016.
