Leven Rambin is set to star in Twentieth Century Fox’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Sea of Monsters, a sequel to the studio’s modest 2010 hit Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightening Thief. Both films are adaptations of Rick Riordan’s “Percy Jackson” book series.
Sea of Monsters finds Percy (Logan Lerman) battling evils from the deep while in search for a mythical Golden Fleece. Rambin, who is coming off the Lionsgate blockbuster The Hunger Games, will play Clarisse La Rue, the smart, but hot-tempered, daughter of Ares, the God of War.
The film is directed by Thor Freudenthal (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) and stars returning players Alexandra Daddario as Annabeth Chase, daughter of Athena, Jake Abel as Luke Castellan, son of Hermes, and Booker T. Washington as Percy’s friend Grover.
New faces include Nathan Fillion (”Firefly,” “Castle”) as Hermes and Anthony Head (The Host) as teacher Chiron. The film goes into production on April 16 in Vancouver, and is slated for release on March 26, 2013.
