One of the most anticipated remakes of recent years has got to be director Louis Leterrier's re-imagining of the classic '80s mythology film Clash of the Titans, opening in theaters on April 2nd. When casting the lead role of the film's hero, it only makes sense that producers would look no further then the "it-actor" of the moment, Sam Worthington. Worthington made a splash last summer as cyborg Marcus Wright in Terminator Salvation but it was his role as U.S. Marine Jake Sully in James Cameron's Avatar that shot the actor to international super-stardom. Now he can be seen as Perseus, the son of Zeus, in Clash of the Titans opposite Liam Neeson as the God of Gods. We recently had a chance to sit down with Sam Worthington to discuss the exciting new movie; it's 3D experience, the original film, how he chooses his roles and Greek mythology. To watch our exclusive interview please click on the video clip below.
In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleashes hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny. Starring Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Alexa Davalos, Gemma Arterton, Mads Mikkelsen, Jason Flemyng, Pete Postlethwaite, Polly Walker and Danny Huston. Directed by Louis Leterrier, Clash of the Titans opens on April 2nd.
