War of the Gods? The Dawn of War? Nah. Let’s Go with Immortals.

Personally I think “War of the Gods” sounds much better, but I’m not a highly paid suit working for Relativity Media, who have finally made it official and settled on a title for their upcoming Tarsem Sighn Greek epic: “Immortals”. Oh well, at least it sounds better than the film’s other alternate title, “Dawn of War”, which just sounded so … ZZZZZZZZ. Sorry, fell asleep while trying to type my thoughts. Anyhoo.

Relatively also announced the addition of two castmembers to “Immortals”: Isabel Lucas and John Hurt will be joining the cast, which already includes Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, Joseph Morgan, Freida Pinto and Mickey Rourke.

Hurt (above, left) will portray the earthly manifestation of the god Zeus, who acts as a mentor and teacher to the young warrior Theseus (Cavill). Isabel Lucas (below), last seen in “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and “Daybreakers”, as well as the upcoming “Red Dawn” remake, will play Athena, the daughter of Zeus who finds her loyalty tested as the war between the gods and Titans looms.

Shooting on “Immortals” has already begun in Montreal this week.

    Yes more Greek mythology films please!!!

    Decent cast. They probably wanted to change the name to distance it from “God of War”

    Name does not matter as long as the movie is good

    I agree but people who don't play video games will think that “God of War” (with Kratos) has something to do with THIS movie, believe me people won't get it. “God Of War” is in the pre-production stage. So they can't use that name. Too much confusion would amass.

    Nada Mucho my man. How you been? I just read an amazing comic. “Spiderman:Reign.” It was like The Dark Knight Returns for Spidey, but in a post 9/11 world as opposed to the Reagan Era. It's pretty deep. Even Kaare Andrews art evokes memories of Frank Miller's work on TDKR. And like miller he pulled art and writing duties. I had heard about it but reading it made it a must own.
