The first teaser trailer for Louis Leterrier’s Clash of the Titans has hit the web, the film is a remake of Desmond Davis’ 1981 original of the same name. Leterrier who previously directed Unleashed, Transporter 2, and The Incredible Hulk, sought the involvement of legendary effects artist Ray Harryhausen for his remake. Harryhausen’s amazing stop-motion creature effects were the highlight of the original film. The remake of Titans stars Sam Worthington (Terminator Salvation, Avatar) as the legendary Greek hero Perseus and Liam Neeson as the god Zeus.
This film could really go either way, the original screenplay for Clash of the Titans was written by the legendary writer-director Lawrence Kasdan, but the script has since been reworked by the writers of Æon Flux and The Tuxedo. However, Leterrier has an extremely good eye for action and that’s what you’re looking for in a sword and sandals epic like this. Let the comparisons to 300 begin. Clash of the Titans is set for release on March 26th, 2010.
