See Sam Worthington in Clash of the Titans

source: slashfilm.com

Slashfilm has the first pic of Aussie Sam Worthington as Perseus, son of Zeus, in Louis Letterier‘s upcoming remake of Clash of the Titans.

In Clash of the Titans, Hades (Ralph Fiennes) threatens to seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson – perfect casting) and unleash hell on Earth. It is up to Perseus and his band of daring warriors to battle Hades’ fearsome beasts and demons, and accept his own power as a God. The film also stars Gemma Arterton, Jason Flemyng and Mads Mikkelson.

Although I wasn’t too impressed by Worthington’s performance in Terminator: Salvation, I’m happy to place the blame on director McG (after all, he made Christian Bale look bad too). Considering James Cameron thought him worthy enough for the lead role in his upcoming picture Avatar, I’ve still got high hopes for any future Worthington project.

Saying that, Letterier’s previous films (Transporter 2, The Incredible Hulk) aren’t exactly acting showcases. Although Jet Li went totally Stanislavski in Letterier’s Unleashed (I’m being sarcastic by the way).

Discuss: Could Clash of the Titans be Pirates of the Caribbean big? What are your thoughts on Worthington’s career?
