Steve Norrington will direct “Clash of the Titans,” the remake of the 1981 mythical adventure that is best remembered for Ray Harryhausen’s special effects.
Warner Bros. and Legendary are plotting a production start next year.
Basil Iwanyk will produce through his Thunder Road banner. In his first such effort since “The Empire Strikes Back,” Lawrence Kasdan rewrote a script by Travis Beacham.
Norrington hasn’t directed a film since 2003’s “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.”
