Last week the details began to leak out … this week, we get some more. The incipit of a brief item from Reuters:
Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes will play warring gods in “Clash of the Titans,” an Olympian epic that starts shooting later this month
Neeson is playing Zeus, the wise yet sometimes ill-tempered king of the gods and father of Perseus (Sam Worthington).
Fiennes (“The Reader”) will play Hades, ruler of the underworld who aims to dethrone Zeus and rule over all.
Wow … sounds like a total rewrite (Schindler’s List on Olympus?) … I can see Neeson as Zeus; not sure about Fiennes as Hades …
