    'Clash of the Titans' remake

    Kasdan's mighty pen on 'Titans'

    By Borys Kit

    April 16, 2007

    Screenwriting hero Lawrence Kasdan has been tapped to pen "Clash of the Titans" for Warner Bros. Pictures. Basil Iwanyk is producing via Thunder Road.

    A remake of the 1981 cult classic, the story revolves around Zeus' son, Perseus, and his journey to save Princess Andromeda during which he must complete various tasks set out by Zeus, including capturing Pegasus and slaying Medusa. The original marked the final film on which Ray Harryhausen did special effects.

    Travis Beacham ("Killing on Carnival Row") wrote a draft.

    Lynn Harris is overseeing for the studio.

    For Kasdan, "Titans" is his first fantasy-style project since the early 1980s, when he wrote the screenplays for "Return of the Jedi," "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark." He has since tended to write, as well as direct and produce, more earthbound fare such as "Mumford" and "Grand Canyon." He next exec produces the upcoming "In the Land of Women," written and directed by son Jon Kasdan, which bows Friday.

    I love it! This is my most favorite "B" type movie around - well, that and Flash Gordon! I hope they don't turn it into a really violent awful movie!

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Hmm... Let's hope Harryhausen comes out of retirement.

    I'm curious what the Kraken will look like. It just screams CGI all over it.

    Re: 'Clash of the Titans' remake

    I've been longing for a remake of this for years, but they better put a lot of time and effort into it. I love the original, and don't really think it should be mucked with, but a lot of people of my generation think i'm weird for liking that "crap." So just introducing it to the non-believers would be great.

    Whilst I too love the original, as long as they keep the same tone and sense of adventure, the remake should be okay.
