However, director, Louis Leterrier is already talking about the possibility of a trilogy to MTV.
Thanks to Monster Island News:
“I’d love Clash to be a franchise. Clash is like creating your own world. It’s like James Cameron with Avatar, he can explore different planets.
“Well, I can explore Greek mythology. You’ve got so many creatures, so many heroes, so many gods. You have Daedalus, Icarus, amazing stuff. You’ve got several worlds. I could spend the rest of my life directing Greek mythology movies and I would still not finish everything.”
“If Clash does well and we’re lucky enough to make it into a franchise, that’s what I’d love to do. Before the gods, there were the titans, there were even bigger creatures and monsters. That could be something. It’s ancient superheroes.”
I would love to see a franchise about Greek mythology. There isn’t enough films made today dealing with Greek mythology(disregarding Percy Jackson film).
While you may say that this is just wishful thinking, the studio has already talked about this possibility:
“We’ve talked about it loosely. Any movie of this size, [the studio wants] to know you won’t hit a wall after your first movie. So they’re like, ‘If we green light your movie and give you the money, what’s the idea for the sequel?’
“And you just give them some ideas. You draw an arc for your character. I’m not saying I know what exactly will happen to Perseus in the next two movies, but I know the direction and it’s pretty exciting.”
If this does turn into a franchise, then Worthington will be part of two already anticipated franchises, that’s to say he does reprise his role. I do think that if there is a trilogy, and it conflicts with Avatar 2, then I have a feeling that he would back out of this. And, of course Neeson would hopefully return if the story called for it.
I do believe the film will make enough to get a sequel, and hopefully they don’t make them two-part stories.
Would you want to see a Clash of the Titans Trilogy? What stories would you want to see?
“Clash of the Titans” is set to hit theatres on March 26, 2010.
