Liam Neeson set to star in Clash of the Titans

CBC News


Actor Liam Neeson is set to start work on a remake of Clash of the Titans, his first film since his wife Natasha Richardson died in March following a skiing accident in Quebec.

The 56-year-old actor will play the king of the gods, Zeus, opposite his longtime friend Ralph Fiennes, who will portray Hades, the lord of the underworld, according to Warner Bros. studio.

It marks the first time the two British thespians have shared the big screen since 1993's Schindler's List.

Richardson suffered a fatal head injury after falling during a lesson at Mont Tremblant in Quebec, and died March 18.

Neeson was filming in Toronto at the time and flew from the set of Chloe, directed by Atom Egoyan, to be at his wife's side.

He slipped back into Toronto at the end of March to finish a few scenes for the film, which also stars Julianne Moore.

There had been speculation whether Neeson would put a hold on his career as he deals with his wife's death and takes care of his two sons with Richardson.

The original Clash of the Titans from 1981 starred Laurence Olivier as Zeus.

The new version also stars James Bond actors Mads Mikkelsen, who played bad guy Le Chiffre in Casino Royale, and Gemma Arterton, who played Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace.

French filmmaker Louis Letterier, whose other credits include last year's The Incredible Hulk and Transporter 2, will direct the Clash of the Titans, which is set to unspool in 2010.





Uhm...wow. I have to say with some embarrassment that this excites me in a small way.
I mean c'mon.

ha....claymation.

proving that yes, you never knew a minotaur could bend like that........but they do.
Ah but they do.

Actually, I think thats one of the reasons why it should be cool.

The Craken, the giant scorpions, ...oh the medusa scene!
What will those all look like with modern special effects?

My guess is ...really effing cool.
and Liam Neesen as Zues. (actually that does seem like a silly casting decision.)

I think Barbara Streisand would make the perfect Medusa.Wouldn't mind seeing her get her head cut off.

I think even with todays tech and special effects it will still be hard to top the original. Whether it turns out to be good or bad it would still be a must see for me.
