Last week we brought you news that Kellan Lutz had joined the cast of WAR OF GODS, and we can now confirm that Stephen Dorff has also joint the cast. Variety broke the news earlier today that the ALONE IN THE DARK and BLADE star will be playing skilled thief Stavros, aiding Theseus in his battle against the forces of evil.
Director Tarsem Singh seems to be gathering a collection of well known, if not massive, stars for WAR OF GODS which is most likely a good sign. Less money spent on securing A-listers means more money for the rest of the budget and suggests that the film will be judged on it’s own merits rather than rely on big names to sell the film. The negative early buzz surrounding CLASH OF TITANS hopefully won’t put a spanner in the works for Singh or the studio as WAR OF GODS set to start shooting next month.
Universal are set to release the film in November 2011.
