Speaking to CHUD while promoting his upcoming venture in the world of comicbookland, “Clash of the Titans” star Sam Worthington was asked about the upcoming “Clash” sequel, and he had plenty to say, Specifically, like a girl once said a while back, he just wants to have a little bit fun in the sequel. Or at the very least, be able to pull the stick out of his character Perseus’s ass, cause as anyone can tell you, that stick was pretty well buried up the boy throughout the first movie.
They came to me with the story the other day. I said, “I kinda dig where it’s going, but can we make the character more of this? Can we make the character more of that?” It’s kind of a case of, “How do we make Perseus a lot more fun?” So we’re sort of shaping it down that track. And Warner Bros. has been nice enough to allow us to have a bit of input.
He also adds this about his character’s lack of, shall we say, fun vibe:
[I want the opportunity to] play a lot more and have a lot more fucking fun than just being a stoic young man who has to stand there and look pretty. I’m sick of doing that. I don’t want to stand there with a stick up my ass.
Worthington would also like everyone to know that he’s demanding that the studio shoot the movie in 3D this time instead of converting it in post, thus resulting in the shitty nature of the film. And here I thought the shittiness of “Clash of the Titans” was less about the awful 3D and more because they hired Louis Leterrier to direct. I’m just saying.
Fortunately, word is Leterrier isn’t expected back for the sequel, though Worthington is expected back in the skirt next year, unless Cameron decides to get “Avatar 2″ going first, which seems unlikely given Cameron’s one-movie-a-decade policy.
