His last film may not have done that well, but that won’t stop the brains behind the upcoming “Clash of the Titans” remake from handing over their film to director Stephen Norrington, whose last film was the critical and commercial big-budget flop “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”. But before that, Norrington had surprise success with 1998′s comic book movie “Blade” with Wesley Snipes.
Steve Norrington will direct “Clash of the Titans,” the remake of the 1981 mythical adventure that is best remembered for Ray Harryhausen’s special effects.
Warner Bros. and Legendary are plotting a production start next year.
Basil Iwanyk will produce through his Thunder Road banner. In his first such effort since “The Empire Strikes Back,” Lawrence Kasdan rewrote a script by Travis Beacham.
