There are some signs though that things may not be completely headed for the dump. The producing team behind the film has managed to somehow rope in Bill Nighy for the role of the blacksmith God Hephaestus, and even Danny Huston has agreed to reprise his role as Poseidon. Warner Bros. has also made the decision to kick the first film’s screenwriters to the curb, and bring in Steven Knight whose track record includes the screenplays for Dirty Pretty Things, and Eastern Promises. However, we all know that a even a good script is at the mercy of it’s director, who in this case is Johnathan Liebesman. So who exactly is this Liebesman character anyways? Well, he’s the guy that brought you such classic gems as Darkness Falls and Battle: Los Angeles! It’s nice to know that the man who is set to bring the God of all Gods, Kronos, to life, is also the same guy that brought you the ever so menacing… Toothfairy Monster *cue menacing orchestra hits*!!
Even knowing the odds, a gambling man such as myself can’t help but at least display a bit of admiration for whoever is behind the reins at Warner Bros. It takes guts to throw another $100+ million at a film whose epic flop will most likely out dazzle whatever terrible CGI they manage to stir up.
