‘Clash of the Titans’ sequel in the works

Warner Bros. tap scribes for second feature

Warner Bros. is ramping up a “Clash of the Titans” sequel, signing scribes David Leslie Johnson and Dan Mazeau to pen the screenplay.

Studio hasn’t set a director or a release date for the sequel yet. Most of the cast, including Sam Worthington, is expected to reprise his turn as Perseus but French director Louis Leterrier has decided not to return for “Clash 2.”

Project is a high priority for Warners, given a solid box office performance that reached nearly $500 million — partly due to strong response in international markets, which drove foreign cume to $325 million, or more than double the $161 million domestic total.

Warner and Legendary Pictures are again partnered on “Clash 2” with Basil Iwanyk returning as producer. And rather than being converted to 3D, the sequel will be shot in 3D.

Both scribes are known qualities at Warner Bros. Johnson penned last summer’s “Orphan” and Mazeau’s worked on scripts for “Jonny Quest” and “The Flash.”

Johnson is repped by Gersh and Mazeau by Paradigm.
