Worthington's new version of Clash of the Titans looks to be pretty good news for 2010.
North CarolinaBe without fear in the face of thine enemies.
Be brave and upright that God may love thee.
Speak the truth always even if it leads to thy death.
Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong.
That is thine oath.

    Clash OTT's charm was the campy stop motion.  They'll ruin it.
    They going to remake the old Sinbad and Jason and the Argonauts movies?

    Owen Pitt is a big guy - roughly the size of a pro football lineman - and you'd also need somebody who doesn't take himself seriously, and with a good sense of comic timing, to play the role.

    Again, this is another reason I choose Gerard Butler. Big guy, not too serious, decent comic timing.  People don't think of him because of 300.  But if you see PS, I Love You (WARNING:  Chick-flick) or RocknRolla, you absolutely see it.



    He does have a thick Scottish accent though, which is typically very hard to dump.  That could be problematic.

    Alright... I'll shut up about it.

    George I love the original COTT and Jason and the Argonauts along with most of Harryhausen effects films.  He's often said if he only had a 10th of the budget and tools that modern effects companies do.  So I don't see it as a destruction of but a realization of what he wanted with the effects.  And yes I hope they remake Jason and The Argonauts.   :devillol

    I'm super stoked for COTT.

    T - Gerard Butler wouldn't be bad, he can shed the accent.  But I just don't think he's BIG enough for what I envisioned LOL and he's a touch old for it isn't he?

    39?  Probably early 40s if/when filming started?  He looks younger than that, and Hollywood can easily shave several years without alot of trouble.  Meh. 

    Gandolfini is almost 50, and he and Larry are just about twins (respectfully, Larry ;)).  I think an actors age of 40 to 45 with a Hollywood correction to 36 to 39 would be fine.

    Put a big old scar across his face and there you go.

    (Note, I've started reading MHI for the first time tonight and am not that far in, so please bear with me).

    Dunno why, but I'm kinda seeing Chuck Norris playing Sam Haven.

    Sorry, I just read his physical description, and Chuck was the first thing that popped into my head.

    How about Clint Eastwood for Earl Harbinger? Again, same deal, read his physical description and enough of the book to figure his personality, and Clint was the first guy to pop into my head.

    Clint is too old for Earl Harbinger.  He might make a good Grandpa Shackelford but not Earl.  Remember earl is just starting to grey at the temples.  40ish.

    Ok so here's what I'm seeing.  This was a lot of fun.  Casting was one of my favorite parts of theater/film and we did it all the time in college in practice.

    Owen - Sam Worthington or Gerard Butler
    Julie - Kate Beckinsale (can we do better?)
    Earl - Viggo Mortensen
    Tripp - Mekhi Pheifer or Terrence Howard
    GP Shakelford - Clint Eastwood or Willem Dafoe
    Milo - Tony Curran (he can rock the red beard!)
    Sam Haven - Martin Henderson
    Jean Darne - Jean Reno
    Grant Jefferson - Ryan Phillipe
    Agent Myers - Nicholas Cage
    Agent Franks - Ray Stevenson or Leiv Schreiber
    Skippy - Andy Serkis

    Yeah, point. I don't really watch new movies much, so I'm at least 20 years behind on actors/actresses. Funny, I posted that, then started to watch Gran Torino and realized "Nope. He's still gotta be in the movie, but he's too old for Earl."

    These are good I think.

    Couple other thoughts though...

    Alexa Davalos as Julie maybe?  She was Kyra in The Chronicles of Riddick.



    When I read MHI, the first person I saw as Milo was Paul Teutul Sr.  Have to dye him red though.  Meh.



    For Tripp... ABSOLUTELY Terrance Howard over Mekhi Pheifer.

    Christina Ricci looks like she sits around with a needle in her arm. Besides her melon head and creepy Precious Moments big eyes, she's still Wednesday Addams to me. I liked the original idea of Brittany Murphy. Then theres always Scarlett Johansen
