Medusa & Kraken Set for Rematch

Titans Remake No Longer Myth

from Dark Horizons

Warner Bros. Pictures has hired scribe Travis Beacham (Killing on Carnival Row) to pen a remake of the 1981 cult classic Clash of the Titans reports Variety.

Beacham plans a new script that "will be darker and more realistic". The storyline will still revolve around Perseus' journey to save the Princess Andromeda, during which he must complete various tasks set out by Zeus, including capturing Pegasus and slaying Medusa.

The original, the final film on which FX legend Ray Harrhausen worked, featured a stellar cast including Harry Hamlin, Laurence Olivier, Claire Bloom, Maggie Smith, Ursula Andress, and Burgess Meredith.

In 2002, the studio previously tapped John Glenn and Travis Adam Wright to pen a script which would cut out much of the 'Gods on Olympus' elements from the original - drawing a lot of ire from fans. Beacham however plans to keep it in.
