Call it “War of the Gods” or “Dawn of War” (the production doesn’t seem to be able to make up their minds), but Tarsem Singh’s Greek epic has the potential to make Louis Leterrier’s “Clash of the Titans” look like a bad high school play with million dollar special effects. Or it could just be a bad imitation. Given Singh’s track record, I’m going with the former. In any case, the Singh-directed film has added another castmember: Stephen Dorff (“Blade”) will play Stavros, a master of thieves who assists hero Theseus (Henry Cavill) on his quest to save mankind from those warring Gods.
Dorff joins Cavill, Mickey Rourke, and “Slumdog Millionaire’s” Freida Pinto as Phaedra, a priestess who also helps Cavill on his quest.
