Warner Bros has been looking for the next big thing and has decided to take another shot at Clash of the Titans.
Warner Bros Updates Clash of the Titans
According to Variety, Warner Bros. Pictures is pushing forward to create a remake of the 1981 cult classic Clash of the Titans. The picture house has recently picked up scribe Travis Beacham to pen the script.
The project first started rolling in 2002 when Warner Bros picked up both John Glenn and Travis Adam Wright to pen the script. However, their vision never took off.
Beacham claims that his script is entirely new and will take a darker, more realistic look than the original MGM film.
The story will revolve around Perseus' journey to save the Princess Andromeda, during which he must complete various tasks set out by Zeus, including capturing Pegasus and slaying Medusa.
The 1981 "Clash" featured a high-profile cast including Laurence Olivier, Claire Bloom, Maggie Smith, Ursula Andress, Jack Gwillim and Burgess Meredith. A young Harry Hamlin starred as Perseus.
"I'll keep the big mythological feel. That's what I totally loved about it when I saw it as a kid," Beacham said.
