Actress would play the role of Andromeda in WB pic

Davalos played the Greek princess in last year’s “Clash of the Titans.” Jonathan Liebesman (“Battle: Los Angeles”) is directing the “Clash” sequel with Sam Worthington reprise his turn as Perseus. 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. Richard Zanuck is also producing. And rather than being converted to 3D, the sequel will be shot in 3D. Scribes David Leslie Johnson and Dan Mazeau were tapped in June to pen the screenplay Pike was recently seen in “Barney’s Version.” She is repped by UTA, Magnolia and United Agents.
