War of the Gods becomes Immortal – John Hurt and Isabel Lucas join the cast
Posted by LiveFor on April 7, 2010
Clash of the Titans has done rather well at the box office. Despite poor reviews and a bad 3D conversion it topped the charts and made $61.4 million in its opening weekend. I have yet to see it. Therefore, sword and sandal films have got a bit of a kick start.
Tarsem Singh (The Fall) has been casting War of the Gods, which is now going to be called Immortals. Latest casting news, via JoBlo, is that John Hurt and Isabel Lucas are on the team. Hurt is always great and Lucas was the human Decepticon in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
They join Mickey Rourke, Frida Pinto, Stephen Dorff, Kellan Lutz, Henry Cavill, Robert Maillet, Corey Sevier, Alan Van Sprang, Mercedes Leggett, Steve Byers, Romano Ozari and Neil Napier.
The story follows a purported bastard who retains an allegiance to his mother despite the fact that he longs to join the quest of a king who is battling demons in ancient Greece later embarks on a grail of discovery that has him finding he is the king’s son and also fated to become his country’s greatest hero as he leads the successful war against long-imprisoned Titans who are hoping to use the demons to restore their power.
Due for release on 11th November 2011.
