Director Jonathan Liebesman's follow-up to Battle: Los Angeles sees him trading Marines and aliens for Greek warriors and gods. According to a recent press release distributed jointly by Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, Liebesman has commenced principal photography on Wrath of the Titans, the sequel to Clash of the Titans, in studios outside London and will then move on to shoot on location in Surrey, South Wales and in the Spanish Canary Islands on the island of Tenerife. The release also included a detailed synopsis of Wrath of the Titans, as well as information about the cast.
A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus [Sam Worthington]—the demigod son of Zeus [Liam Neeson]—is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius.
Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades [Ralph Fiennes] and Poseidon [Danny Huston]. The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld.
Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramirez), switch loyalty and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth.
Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
Wrath of the Titans was written by Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson from a story by Mazeau, Johnson and Greg Berlanti. Also returning is Gemma Arterton as Io.
