Uma Thurman as Medusa, Pierce Brosnan as Chiron. And No, This is Not "Clash of the Titans" 


It may sound like a remake of "Clash of the Titans" but this new film has a more contemporary take on Greek gods and goddesses. FOX 2000 has just assembled a cast for their fantasy adventure "Percy Jackson."

So Miss Uma is playing Medusa (I always love this fierce character) while Pierce Brosnan is going to play Chiron the Centaur.



Sean Bean ("Lord of the Rings" franchise) is playing Zeus!



Other members of the cast are Kevin McKidd ("Hannibal Rising") will play Poseidon and Melina Kanakerides ("CSI: NY") is joining as Athena.

Chris Columbus (the first two "Harry Potter" films) is attached to direct.

According to Variety:

Story centers on Poseidon's 12-year-old half-human son, who embarks on a quest across modern-day America to save his mother, return Zeus' stolen lightning bolt and prevent a deadly war between the gods.


Interesting, albeit very Harry Potter-ish with Greek gods this time.

The production is set to begin next month for a possible release date of February 2010.

Oh, and actors listen up! The studio is still looking to cast Aries, Hades, and Persephone!
