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?
