That's The Clever Title For 'Clash Of The Titans 2' In Case You're Not CleverThere have been a lot of rumors of actors being "considered" for roles lately, and usually it's a result of one intrepid producer making a highly optimistic wish list. Every movie has these wish lists - no one ever comes out and says, "I want to cast Patrick Dempsey," but someone's got to end up with him. And so we have names being thrown around for the megabudgeted sci-fi pic "All You Need Is Kill" and the anticipated-by-no-one sequel "Wrath of the Titans."

That's The Clever Title For 'Clash Of The Titans 2' In Case You're Not Clever



There have been a lot of rumors of actors being "considered" for roles lately, and usually it's a result of one intrepid producer making a highly optimistic wish list. Every movie has these wish lists - no one ever comes out and says, "I want to cast Patrick Dempsey," but someone's got to end up with him. And so we have names being thrown around for the megabudgeted sci-fi pic "All You Need Is Kill" and the anticipated-by-no-one sequel "Wrath of the Titans."

The latest from a Tweet by Production Weekly suggests Warner Bros. is shooting for the stars, hoping to cast the roles of Ares and Agenor with Oscar winner Javier Bardem and potential Oscar nominee James Franco, respectively. It would be a major coup to get either of these actors to do a cash-in sequel, to the point where this would become a much more prestigious film. Specifically to the point where people would have to forget it was gang-written and under the eye of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning" director Johnathan Liebesman. So yeah, count on Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Jared Padalecki instead.

As for "All You Need Is Kill," it's a highly-sought-after project that remains early in pre-production and has Doug Liman at the helm. We had heard rumblings of Zac Efron being involved, but he's set up a couple dozen projects to fill his schedule, meaning this lead role is up for grabs. Does that leave the door open for Ryan Gosling? We're digging into that one and will hopefully have some news on that front later in the day so stay tuned.
