Release the Kraken! Liam Neeson returns for Wrath of the Titans

The Clash of the Titans sequel that everyone knew was coming—but I'm not sure anyone really wanted—is set to start production early next year, and the Irish actor promises it'll be exciting.

While the Sam Worthington-led Clash of the Titans did very well at the box office, it was reviled in both the critical and fan communities for shoddy storytelling and even shoddier 3-D.

Neeson has higher hopes for the sequel: "We will start next March. I'm very much looking forward to it. It's a whole revamping, you know," the Irish actor said of the new take from director Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles). "I've only read half of the script, and there is still some work being done—they're on [the 10th draft of the] script—but I think it's going to be some kick-ass stuff and a very human story to it."

Joining Neeson for a second crack at the Greek mythos will be Worthington, Gemma Arterton and Ralph Fiennes—while reports say that James Franco and Javier Bardem are in talks to join the cast, as Poseidon's son and Ares, the god of war, respectively.
