Thurman, Brosnan, McKidd to Play Greek Gods

Hollywood just got even more powerful with the casting of Uma Thurman, Pierce Brosnan and Sean Bean in the Greek god fantasy adventure, Percy Jackson. Thurman will play Medusa, Brosnan will portray Chiron and Bean is taking the role of Zeus. Additionally, Kevin McKidd will play Poseidon and Melina Kanakaredes has been cast as Athena. Here's more:

The studio is still looking to fill the roles of Aries, Hades and Persephone.

Story centers on Poseidon's 12-year-old half-human son ([Logan] Lerman), who embarks on a quest across modern-day America to save his mother, return Zeus' stolen lightning bolt and prevent a deadly war between the gods.

Chris Columbus (Adventures in Babysitting, Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire) is directing and aiming for a 2010 release. I'm actually kind of psyched to see this. What do you think of this godly news?

This seems really interesting, I want to see Rufus Sewell as Hades, if you have seen him in Helen of Troy as Agamemnon you would know why! He is perfect. Love McKidd as Poseidon! Maybe Kate Beckinsale as Persephone?

Can we get Julian McMahon as Hades? This seems very interesting. I would definitely at least rent but if the trailer is good enough I would go see it in the theatre.

i'm actually interested in seeing the trailer once it's done. it's story that's new and not at all what we've seen lately and i think that it's really important that we have fresh new plots!

Sounds like fun! I'm strangely drawn to stories that involve the Greek Gods.
