Danny Huston Joins Clash of the Titans Remake

A bit of a late casting for Louis Leterrier’s “Clash of the Titans” remake, which has Danny Huston joining the cast as Poseidon, the King of the Seas. Huston was last seen as a vampire in “30 Days of Night”, and more recently can be seen chasing Wolverine and his fellow mutants in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”. THR says Huston will be joining Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes as battling Gods in the movie.

In “Clash of the Titans,” the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.

The Louis Leterrier-directed remake, which stars Sam Worthington, Mads Mikkelsen, Gemma Arterton, Jason Flemyng and Alexa Davalos, officially began production on Monday outside of London. It’s due out in 2010.
