Another 'Clash of the Titans'? Not For a While, at Least

If you enjoyed the 2010 remake of Clash of the Titans or its 2012 sequel Wrath of the Titans, we have some bad news for you: There won't be a third film in the fantasy franchise in the near future.

"In terms of Clash of the Titans 3, it's one of those situations where we've seen it a million times; a movie will kind of float away and then come back when it's supposed to come back," Producer Iwanyk told IGN.com. "You'd think that there was three and a half, four years of nonstop Clash of the Titans activity, and I think it is, 'OK, what's the new idea? How do you make it fresh?' You know, a lot of movies have come out in that world, including Immortals and 300. So there will be a time and place where someone will come up with a great idea for it and how to make it feel different and fresh from the previous ones. Then we'll hopefully move forward on that."

The move doesn't come as a huge surprise considering Wrath made $305.2 million worldwide while its predecessor Clash -- a remake of the 1981 classic -- earned $493.2 million. Iwanyk says they do have plans to explore the mythology of Egypt on the big screen with the Alex Proyas-directed Gods of Egypt.

"The simplest way to say it, because it's the Egyptians myths, is the world is a lot more through the eyes of Alex Proyas, so it's a lot more fantastical," Iwanyk said. "We call it 'Planet Egypt.' We're shooting the entire thing on green screen in Sydney. But it'll be photo-real green screen, not stylized like 300. People will wonder, like, 'Where the hell did you shoot that?' And it's a lot more of an adventure movie, like The Thief of Bagdad, those old movies. Clash was a very serious movie. Gods of Egypt I think is a lot more Raiders and Pirates than it is those movies. But it's an incredible world. So yeah, that goes on March 23rd."
