Liebesman to Direct 'Titans' Sequel
Deadline reports that Warner Brothers / Legendary Pictures have made a deal to have Jonathan Liebesman (BATTLE: LOS ANGELES) to direct CLASH OF THE TITANS 2.
Although not a big hit with critics, the first film grossed over $490 Million. This time around the studio plans to shoot the film in 3-D, rather than relying on a post-production conversion.
CLASH OF THE TITANS’s director Louis Leterrier, while declining to direct, may still be involved as an executive producer. Earlier this year, Greg Berlanti (GREEN LANTERN) was brought in to write the film’s story, though it’s expected another writer will fine tune a screenplay with Liebesman.
Sam Worthington is said to be signed for the sequel, which will have to be done before AVATAR II begins production. As James Cameron has indicated there will be some time before he turns his full attention to that film, there should be no conflict.
