I guess a movie of epic proportions needs a cast of epic proportions as well. The Clash of the Titans sequel, Wrath of the Titans, is working on rounding out its ensemble cast with two more names practically down and two more on the horizon. First up, Bill Nighy is being courted for the role of Hephaestus though he’s far from signing on the dotted line. (It shouldn’t be too hard though; he’s worked with the Kraken before.)
In the department of things that are almost-done deals, Edgar Ramirez (who you may know from his supporting roles in movies like The Bourne Ultimatum and a starring role is the critically acclaimed Carlos) is in negotiations for the role of Ares. The Sorceror’s Apprentice’s Toby Kebbell is about to accept an offer for a role as Agenor in the film as well – and after playing villains in Sorcerer and Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, this style of film seems to be his thing.
In addition to those roles, the studio is still looking to fill the role of Andromeda, with Captain America’s Haley Atwell testing and Clemence Poesy (Gossip Girl) and Janet Montgomery among others in the running.
