Clash of the Titans is Going All Bond-y
Posted 04.01.09 by Ryan
Louis Letterier's (The Incredible Hulk) remake of The Clash of the Titans is adding some actors to its cast that will be quite familiar to James Bond fans. Casino Royale villain Mads Mikkelson is joining the cast as Draco, a leader of the Praetorian Guard that follows Perseus (played by Terminator Salvation's Sam Worthington) during his quest.
Quantum of Solace's Gemma Atherton will play Io, a part she described as "the coolest" to Emipre. "Io’s not in the original film," Atherton continued. "Perseus falls in love with her and then [Empire censors a "tiny spoiler"]. It’s a really great part.”
While the movie is still a remake of the 1981 original, Atherton claims the script is "very different" and while the story may be similar, the remake is "more about Perseus’ mission, and how he deals with being the son of Zeus."
