While there isn’t any actual footage from the upcoming remake of “Clash of the Titans” out there, I’ve got the next best thing for you. On last week’s episode of “Behind the Screen,” we paid a visit to the set of the Sam Worthington-starring film, which is currently shooting in Wales.
In the video below you can check out interviews with Worthingon, Mads Mikkelson, Nicholas Hoult and Liam Cunningham as well as raw footage from the shoot. So not quite the polished clip you might want to see, but good stuff nonetheless.
Director Louis Leterrier’s remake of “Clash” follows the basic script of the Desmond Davis original, which starred Laurence Olivier, Claire Bloom and “Harry Potter” vet Maggie Smith. Perseus (Worthington) is on a quest to save the fair Princess Andromeda (Alexa Davalos), but he’ll have to go through Medusa and the Kraken first.
Expect lots of big action, epic set pieces and CG monstrosities. For more on “Clash of the Titans,” head over to MTV.com for Eric Ditzian’s full report. And remember movie-lovers: tune in to MTV on Sunday at 8pm for the 2009 Video Music Awards, during which you’ll be able to catch trailer premieres for “New Moon” and the Michael Jackson documentary, “This Is It.”
