Fox 2000 bulks up ‘Percy Jackson’

Thurman, Brosnan to play Greek Gods in film

Fox 2000 has assembled a cast of Greek gods for the fantasy adventure “Percy Jackson.”

Uma Thurman, Pierce Brosnan and Sean Bean have signed on to play Medusa, Chiron and Zeus, respectively. Kevin McKidd (Poseidon) and Melina Kanakerides (Athena) are also joining the heavenly bunch in the Chris Columbus-helmed pic.

The studio is still looking to fill the roles of Aries, Hades and Persephone. Logan Lerman and Brandon Jackson have already signed on to topline.

Story centers on Poseidon’s half-human teenage son (Lerman), 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.

Lensing begins next month in Vancouver, with the studio setting a February 2010 release date.

Karen Rosenfelt, Michael Barnathan and Columbus are producing, while Mark Radcliffe, Greg Mooradian, Guy Oseary and Mark Morgan are exec producing.
