Liebesman to direct ‘Clash of the Titans 2’

Warner Bros. taps 'Battle: Los Angeles' helmer for sequel

Warner Bros. has tapped Jonathan Liebesman (“Battle: Los Angeles”) to direct “Clash of the Titans 2.”

Studio hasn’t set a release date for the sequel yet. Sam Worthington is expected to reprise his turn as Perseus, but French director Louis Leterrier 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.

Scribes David Leslie Johnson and Dan Mazeau were tapped in June to pen the screenplay.

Liebesman is repped by CAA and Principato-Young.
