Clash Of The Titans Could Be A Trilogy

35 Comments

And by “could be” I mean “most likely, almost certainly, would be”. According to Director Louis Leterrier, they already have plans to make two more sequels if the upcoming Clash of The Titans remake does well in the box office. And lets be honest, we all know it’s gonna.

According to FirstShowing.net, they’re so certain there’s going to be two more Titans that Leterrier has already written the two other movies. In fact, it looks like they planned this from the beginning:

“I wrote two other movies… It was three movies. Warners came to me and said ‘we’ll greenlight your movie if you promise us [two more.]‘” He continues, “You can tell that that story the story doesn’t end at the Clash of the Titans… And I said ‘thanks a lot’ because I love doing that. And I had to write two stories. So Clash of the Titans is, and especially ‘Titans’ is, actually a bigger movie. So ‘Titans’ are coming.”

But don’t get too excited. According to Leterrier, fans are going to have to wait 3 years before the next sequel comes out. That’s just enough time for the more obsessive fans to create strange cults based on Sam Worthington’s character, but seriously, when has that ever happened in the past?

    Cool. So even if I don’t get my illiad/odessey big budget flicks, I’ll get more greek mythology anyway.

      Your Illiad is already out… “Troy” and it was awesome. They just need to remake the Odessey.

      • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool aka Jiinx

        NO. That wasn’t MY “Illiad.” I want the poem come to life. I want Gods switching sides, I want a sea creature to take the soothsayer, I want demigods and epic battles. That’s MY “Illiad.” Not the “King Arthur” version of the story. Not the Truth behind the myth. I WANT THE MYTHIC Battle that took ten years (granted it wouldn’t have to take the whole ten but still). As for the “Odyssey” to date the best version I’ve seen is the Hallmark miniseries with Armand Asante as Odyseus. It was absolutely great, and even took the time to have an hour set up that covered the Trojan War. DIdn’t have the Gods taking sides but was still awesome.

          And don’t get me wrong I liked Troy. Alot. Enough that I sold it so I could go get the ultimate edition, or final cut or whatever.

          • Dikaia

            Okay, I know what mean now. In that case the blockbuster has not been out yet and should come out. I agree.

        • Larry Saini

          Yeah Hallmark got The Odessey I’d say 60-70% accurate. Which is amazing for any book to film transfer. In the last 6 years I read and re-read The Illiad, The Odessey, and Gilgamesh 4 times each. Not many people realize that in literature the Trojan horse is never mentioned in the Illiad. It was mentioned by Odessus when told the story to a king of an island he washed ashore on in The Odessus. As you can tell I’m a huge fan of mythology.

    This is disgraceful >:( What you couldn’t do something ORIGINAL so you have to take something that was already done and F@#% it up?! Please swallow a cyanide pill and DIE. NOW.

    • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool aka Jiinx

      WOW. That was unecessary. Don’t like it ignore the flick. But remakes are nothing new. Been happening in film for decades and in literature for longer. Sometimes things need to be updated if only to bring in a new generation. This film (and to a lesser extent “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) will get younger people back into Greek mythology, which is always a good thing.

        I agree. I am generally against remakes, but certain films could use a face lift. A lot classic horror and classic action films could be improved upon just by technological advances in graphics. They atleast deserve the attempt at trying to do so. Yes some attempts are sacrilege, but in the case of “Clash with the Titans” ( which i love and it holds a sentimental value to me) It is painfully cheesy, doesn’t hold up, and could really benefit from technology that wasn’t available during the period it was originally made. Plus like you said in most cases its to reintroduce the product to a new (picky) generation.

    @Dikaia- Can you imagine “The Illiad” and “Odyssey” given the Lord of the Rings treatment? My head explodes at the prospect. LOL.

    • Larry Saini

      Hey Dedpool I totally agree with you. I am a huge fan of mythology, Greek and Norse are my faves, I would love to see some Egyptian mythologies made into film. Middle Eastern also, the Sinbad series of films, I wouldn’t mind seeing updated. It would raise interest in young adults to want to read these adventures, maybe even try writing a screenplay of their own. Also Perseus (Clash of the Titans) isn’t the only Greek hero. Imagine a trilogy or a series of films based on Hercules. I could go on and on, think i wrote enough for now.

      • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool aka Jiinx

        You are absolutely correct! Those films would be great. Mythology has always been a great source for stories new and old. Look at “Clash” and the “God of War” game franchise. That franchise basically takes greek mythology and throws it into a blender and hit Liquify. WHat we get is a yummy Greek mythology smoothie. LoL. Egyptian mythology is great too. The Middle Eastern stuff as well. New Sinbad would be great so would some movies based off these Virgin Comics. They came out with several titles a little while back and they were pretty good. Some focussed on Indian Mythology and such here’s part of the wiki entry:

        Shakti
        The Shakti line (“Shakti” means “power” in Sanskrit) feature Indian mytholgy, art, history, classical stories, and other related themes, often with a modern twist. Its debut titles – two of the first three to see print from Virgin Comics – were Devi and The Sadhu. Devi was written by Siddharth Kotain, and featured “a modern take on a very ancient myth”, in which title character Devi becomes a “warrior of the light” after the pantheon of gods re-birth her in response to the “the rapid decay of the city of Sitapur” caused by “fearsome renegade god Bala.”

        Ramayan 3392 A.D.The Sadhu, written by Gotham Chopra himself, is a story of revenge, from an individual who “was once a Sadhu – what, in the East, they call mystics.”

    I would love to see the day that happens. Hopefully this renewed interest in Mythology in cinema will help that become a reality.

    My hubby, after seeing Percy Jackson with our son, has taken up interest in Greek Mythology and has been searching for some books to read about it all. We’re pretty excited for ‘Clash of The Titans’! We both love the original, although it’s been a long time since we’ve seen it. But this remake has been one of the top films for us to see this year and I would love it if they made it a trilogy!!

    • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool aka Jiinx

      Exactly. That means Percy Jackson succeeded and Clash is doing it’s job. LoL. A trilogy would be great, get to see some other greek heroes. Theseus and maybe Hercules.
