Remaking Clash

According to "The Hollywood Reporter," the 1981 cult classic Clash of the Titans in which Zeus' son, Perseus must save a princess, capture Pegasus and slay Medusa -- to say nothing of battling a Kraken, is being remade by Warner Bros., with Return of the Jedi, The Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark scribe, Lawrence Kasdan set to pen the script. No word yet on who is to direct.

Whe I saw the second "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie, and I heard them all howling in terror over "The Kracken!!" all I could think of was "Clash of the Titans." I suspect I'm not the only one.

Haha, no you certainly were not! Have you seen/heard the "ask a Ninja" review of PotC:II? The Kraken features humorously.

Don't ask me why or how, but I was recently thinking that someone should remake "Clash."

That movie was a Saturday afternoon favorite when I was a kid. It could be an awesome FX-bonanza.

Who should play Perseus? My vote goes to Nathan Fillon from Firefly/Serenity.

Fillon, huh? I just get warm and cozy all over any time anyone mentions the superb Firefly .

I loved this movie - can't wait to see if it actually gets done, and who will be in it!

(Nathan Fillion would be perfect for Perseus)
