TITANS to CLASH Again

Written by Tara the Mom    Monday, 14 June 2010 05:45   

Warner Brothers had hoped Clash of the Titans could become a franchise, making sure Sam Worthington signed onto an option where he'd return if there were multiple pictures. The nearly $500 million worldwide take at the box office is more than enough to convince Warners to go forward with Clash of the Titans 2. Director Louis Leterrier will not be returning. Two writers have been hired to write the screenplay: David Leslie Johnson (Orphan) and Dan Mazeau (The Flash; Jonny Quest). Producer Basil Iwanyk will resume producing duties.

*****

April 21, 2010: Rumors and false reports are swirling Disney's Wizard of Oz prequel, Oz The Great and Powerful.

Just like a Kansas tornado, the swirling funnel of who might star in it include Robert Downey Jr. (which his publicist says his CAA agents deny) and Johnny Depp and the short list of who might helm include Oscar types Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge) and Sam Mendes (American Beauty). What seems evident is that with the next James Bond movie on the fritz indefinitely while MGM figures out its money woes, Bond 23 director Sam Mendes is now available and is said to be the frontrunner for the helming gig on Oz. What is definitely grounded information is that Joe Roth is producing the picture.

The story will follow the Wizard, a carnie conman from Kansas, who goes through a journey similar to Dorothy's eventually landing in that spot behind the curtain. Warner Brothers has two other "Wizard of Oz" projects in development.
