You fucking heathens.
While I was out hosting Easter egg hunts for the homeless and retarded, you all flocked to the movies to catch the Legendary Pictures/Warner Bros. remake of Clash of the Titans. The film earned $61.4 million at the box office, an Easter weekend record.
Not surprisingly, talk about a Clash of the Titans trilogy has begun.
Director Louis Leterrier tells MTV:
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.
It’s ancient superheroes. You’ve got so many creatures, so many heroes, so many gods. You have Daedalus, Icarus, Percivel. 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.
Screenwriters Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi are also eager to keep their noses buried in cocaine and hooker ass. The duo have already begun brainstorming on where to take the franchise to next.
There are so many small stories to mine that don’t make movies on their own, but you can weave them together and create a comprehensive world. We all hope we get to do it. It would be thrilling.
UPDATE: Leterrier and his screenwriters are out. Battle: Los Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman and writers Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson are now on board Clash of the Titans 2.
