First look at Clash of the Titans set

Director Louis Leterrier, whose upcoming film Clash of the Titans will be filming in the Canary Islands, is in the process of building a battleground of the gods in Tenerife. The site Las Horas Perdidas has posted the first photographs from the set.

Sam Worthington stars as Perseus, who goes on a quest to save a princess and defeat Hades, the god of hell. Liam Neeson is playing Zeus, the wise yet sometimes ill-tempered king of the gods and father of Perseus, while Ralph Fiennes will play Hades, ruler of the underworld, who aims to overtake Zeus and rule over all. Mads Mikkelsen, Gemma Arterton and Alexa Davalos have also been cast.

Clash of the Titans is a remake of the 1981 film of the same name, which starred Harry Hamlin as Perseus and featured an all-star cast including Laurence Olivier, Claire Bloom and Maggie Smith.
