Leven Rambin Joins Percy Jackson Sequel

No Comments

Leven RambinBefore Leven Rambin was “one of the girls from ‘The Hunger Games’”, she was “that girl Fox tried to push on ‘Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles’”. You know, the girlfriend that you didn’t know John Connor had when he was a wee lad? Yeah, her.

Anyways, Rambin has since survived her “Sarah Connor Chronicles” forced casting, and has now signed up to join the cast of “Percy Jackson: The Sea of Monsters”, the sequel to 2010′s “Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightning Thief”.

Rambin will play Clarisse, daughter of Ares aka the God of War, and her character is described as being “skilled at battle and a perfectionist.” Hey, if you’re the daughter of the God of War, you better be skilled at battle, am I right? Don’t know about the perfectionist part, though.

Logan Lerman will reprise the role of Percy Jackson, the franchise’s young lead, along with Alexandra Daddario and Brandon T. Jackson as his traveling/fighting companions. According to IMDB.com, Nathan Fillion and Anthony Head are also in the cast. Go figure. I hadn’t heard of that.

The awesomely named Thor Freudenthal will direct the film, which begins production later next week on location in Vancouver.

The first “Percy Jackson” was a moderate hit, earning $226 million in worldwide box office from a $95 million dollar budget. Not exactly a runaway success, even with the $37 million it made from DVD sales, but I guess Fox really wants a young adult franchise to call their own, so they’re going to give it another go.
