Rosamund Pike Joins ‘Wrath of the Titans’ as Andromeda

Published 3 years ago by , Updated August 24th, 2013 at 9:46 am,

Last year the admittedly awful Clash of the Titans remake bombarded viewers with horrendous 3D, convoluted character development and mediocre CGI. It was a mindless romp with some above-average action sequences that kept the remake from being a complete disaster – though it did end up on our list of Most Disappointing Films of 2010.

Warner Bros. is giving the Greek mythology-based franchise another shot in a sequel titled Wrath of the Titans. Though they’ve brought back some major characters, they decided to drop director Louis Leterrier for Battle: Los Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman.

Today it was announced that sultry actress Rosamund Pike (Surrogates, Die Another Day) will join the cast of Wrath of the Titans as Andromeda. She replaces Alexa Davalos from Clash of the Titans who was unable to return due to scheduling conflicts.

Liam Neeson (Unknown) and Sam Worthington (Avatar) are both confirmed to return for the sequel while Edgar Ramirez (The Bourne Ultimatum) and Toby Kebbell (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) are rumored to join as Ares and Agenor, respectively.  Ralph Fiennes (Harry Potter) will reprise his role as Hades, Lord of the Underworld and Danny Huston (Robin Hood) will once again play Poseidon, King of the Sea. The beautiful Gemma Arterton will “resurrect” her role of the once cursed Io.

No one involved with Wrath of the Titans has divulged any details regarding a possible story for the film, though the ending of the previous film didn’t really leave the door open to a sequel. This lack of any real story direction probably explains why the film has six writers attached – Travis Beachmen, Greg Berlanti, Phil Hay, David Johnson, Matt Manfredi and Dan Mazeau.

In classic Greek mythology, Perseus rescues the virgin Andromeda from the clutches of the sea creature Cetus who was sent forth by Poseiden as punishment for her mother’s, Queen Cassiopeia, arrogance and vanity. How is Andromeda offered as a sacrifice to Cetus? Why, chained completely naked to a rock by the sea of course! After Perseus rescues her, they fall in love, get married and have seven sons and one daughter together. Moving into the future and showing Perseus and Andromeda starting their life together while Hades tries to rule of the earth in darkness could be a possible story arc.

Wrath of the Titans is set to begin filming in March 2011 while the theatrical date is March 23rd, 2012.

  1. @”Why, chained completely naked to a rock by the sea of course!”

    And hopefully we’ll be able to see that in this film lol (doubt it).

    • yeah I dont think they will be going r rated even though Pike does have a banging body

      • They can still have her naked, and get a PG-13 rating. Just don’t show the goods.

  2. I had high hopes for the first one, I hope this is much better since the material is infinite and amazing.

  3. “…showing Perseus and Andromeda starting their life together…”

    Except in the new version, Perseus hooks up with Io at the end, not Andromeda.

    • Yeah, didn’t Hera or Zeus resurrect her just for Perseus? I think they would be pretty ticked if Perseus dumps Io and goes with Andromeda. Look what happened to Medusa when she upset a god. :-)

    • @Sean – well I was telling you the actual story not the movie version :)

  4. Why does she pick these crap movies? You might as well call it Doom II.

    • or clash of the titans 2. i dont get comments like that, I could understand that comment if it was atleast a video game movie, but its not, and it doesnt have the same director as doom or any of the actors except pike who was in Doom, but i doubt that was where you where going either and considering the first one was better then Doom im still not sure what that comment means…..

  5. NOT seeing this movie. Sorry. HATED the last one. I will stick with the Original Clash Of the Titans.

  6. I wonder if the cast of Friends will live on like the stories of these old gods.

    I’m about as fascinated by them as these old fabled characters.

  7. “Liam Neeson (Unknown)” Sounds weird..

  8. I absolutely despised the first film, it was attrocious in every way, I will not be seeing this. I wouldnt even waste my bandwidth downloading it for free.

  9. I think I will wait for this to hit DVD. I watched the original and the story was so much better. They mentioned the battle between the Kraken and the other Titans, showed up WHERE it happened but didnt show us the battle. Would have made the film at least 30% better. They made Medusa pretty, and everyone involved with the production and the direction of this movie should be caned with a rusty bat. And who is Sam Worthington and why is he the new thing going in H-wood?
