Clash of the Titans Remake Gets Incredible Hulk Director

Aw, here's some news that just might break my dad's heart, seeing as Clash of the Titans is one of his favorite movies of all time. It's just like when we get indignant and protective over our most beloved movies getting makeovers (Footloose, Teen Witch, Friday the 13th, etc.). I definitely sympathize with the dismay he'll feel at knowing that Titans is getting remade, most likely with CGI Medusa snakes and everything.

Louis Leterrier, director of the most recent Incredible Hulk movie, will direct the script which is getting reworked by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan. Variety explains the story:

In Clash of the Titans, Perseus, the son of Zeus, must overcome a series of obstacles to save his beloved Princess Andromeda, including cutting off the serpent-tressed head of Medusa, who can turn a man to stone with a single glance.

Interestingly, another epic movie having to do with Greek mythology just got greenlit, with director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) at the helm. Titled War of the Gods, the story is "set in war-torn ancient Greece, as the young warrior prince Theseus leads his men in a battle against evil that will see the gods fighting with soldiers against demons and titans." Variety points out that this "Hollywood toga party" will mean that the two movies will engage in "a full-fledged chariot race to be first."

Are you ready for more Greek mythology on the big screen?

The original Clash, a Ray Harryhausen masterpiece might have been a bit cheesy, but it was amazing and can never be replaced. I am not looking forward to a CGI fest.

I actually loved the original one. They need to just let it be and come up with new material instead of remaking old movies.

Aw man I *love* Clash of the Titans! Yes, it was cheesy, but that's ok. ;) I am noticing a growing public interest in Greek/Roman mythology in general, these days.
