Liam Neeson to reprise Zeus in WRATH OF THE TITANS
Though CLASH OF THE TITANS didn't end up being a giant critical success, it did end up making a whole lot of money. Even so, when most of the cast decided to return for a sequel, it was kind of surprising. Now we have gotten the most surprising of them all, as Liam Neeson has decided to return for more.
Neeson will reprise his role of Zeus for the sequel. This is only surprising as he seems to be rather choosy about what films he does, with the exception of A-TEAM. He's an actor who tries to perform at very high levels in everything he does, and goes for films that allow him to do that. That certainly wasn't the first film, but could it be the second film?
Maybe the reason that most of the cast will return is because the second film is shaping up to be a lot better. Neeson describes it as having "some kick-ass stuff with a very human story to it." If he's right, that's something I can certainly get behind.
WRATH OF THE TITANS is set to begin filming in March.
