Logan Lerman Says ‘Percy Jackson 3′ Is Officially Dead

'Noah' actor confirms third film in YA fantasy series won't be happening.

Logan Lerman won’t be returning to the role of Percy Jackson in a third film based on the long running YA fantasy series of the same name. In fact, a third movie won’t be happening at all.

“It’s not happening,” Lerman said when MTV News asked about a threequel at the junket for Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming biblical fantasy “Noah.”

Lerman starred as the title character in 2010′s “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” as well as last year’s “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.” The first two movies followed the title character, the demigod son of Poseidon as he survived the life of a hero-in-training at Half-Blood Camp while battling the forces of the Titan Kronos.

The award-winning “Percy Jackson: The Titan’s Curse” would have been the next book in the series coming to the big screen — presumably in 2015 or 2016, if the pace of the first two films’ release was continued — following Percy and his allies’ attempts to rescue the goddess Artemis and Percy’s long-time friend Annabeth from the clutches of their kidnappers.

“It’s been a great experience for me,” Lerman said of the role. “It’s opened up a lot of doors for me, but I don’t think it’s happening.”

One of those doors is playing the role of Ham, middle son of Noah (Russell Crowe) in Aronofsky’s (“The Fountain”) epic flood fantasy. It was a role that he wasn’t even sure he’d be offered.

“I was interested in this movie before I even knew what it was. I heard that Darren Aronofsky was making a film, and there [were] potentially two roles that I could play, and I was like, ‘I’m in for either one of them.’ ”

Initially, the actor went in to audition for the role of Shem (which would ultimately go to his co-star Douglas Booth), when the director asked him to read for the part of Ham. “It was actually the role I wanted more,” Lerman says. “It’s the role I liked more. There’s a lot of tension between [Ham] and Noah throughout the script and I really responded to that.”

“Noah” will be in theaters March 28th.
