Empire Online has Sam Worthington in his “Clash of the Titans” remake wardrobe on their cover this month. Inside, there is an article on the movie and interview with the star, in which Worthington proclaims, “we’re not in fuckin’ Harryhausen mode anymore”, which, er, is definitely going to rub some Ray Harryhausen fans the wrong way. Empire tries their best to save the Aussie from fanboy outrage, but you decide if they succeeded.
An excerpt from the article:
“He’s just your golden hero that you’re meant to follow,” says Worthington of the old Perseus. “I feel when my Perseus starts out, he should be this bombastic tank. The gods have killed his family. He’s Charles Bronson! He’s gonna go for revenge, and the best way to achieve that is to kill the Kraken. Well, to kill the Kraken you gotta kill Medusa. To get to Medusa, you gotta take on the witches. Then once he kills the Kraken, he’s gonna kill fuckin’ Hades and Zeus and everybody else! But along the way he needs to learn to calm down, ask for help. And out of that comes the true hero. A hero isn’t someone who leads men; a hero is someone that’s in the trench with the men.”
