Clash of the Titans touted for trilogy
|NEWS - MOVIE NEWS|
It's the hat-trick for Perseus if he can get past the first hurdle...
First showing reports that Louis Leterrier has been signed for a further two Clash Of The Titans movies - assuming the one that opens in a few weeks enjoys the expected success. FS interviewed Leterrier at the weekend:
"I wrote two other movies," the director told Alex Billington. "It was three movies [in total]. Warners came to me and said 'we'll greenlight your movie if you promise us [two more.]'... You can tell that the story doesn't end at [the conclusion of] Clash of the Titans… And I said 'thanks a lot' because I love doing that... I actually love wanting more out of a movie."
On the subject of a trilogy being contingent on the success of the initial outing, which remakes the Schneer/Harryhausen fantasy movie starring Harry Hamlin from 1981, Leterrier told FS:
"Let's see... And I promise you that I've got more. And I've got good more. It's not like I've got more of the same, I've got more of different, and mythology is just like… We've opened the door.... it goes beyond any heroes that you've heard of and stuff like that… It's fun. It's good! That's why I was like, great, okay it's a remake...but the door is open to Greek mythology, so we'll see!"
I wonder if it is possible to get a big-budget film made anymore that closes the story conclusively in one film? George Lucas was very inventive with the conclusion of the original Star Wars (1977), from which viewers might have concluded that the Empire was defeated with the destruction of its greatest weapon. These days I suspect that a script has to leave the door rather more wide open...
