“Clash of the Titans” star Gemma Aterton is as eager as the film’s fans to find out concrete details about the planned sequel. When MTV caught up with the actor during a press day for “The Disappearance of Alice Creed,” out next Friday, she didn’t have any specific news to reveal, only that she thinks she’ll be back for the second film.
“I think I am doing the second ’Clash,'” Arterton said. “I don’t know anything about it yet though. It’s one of those things.” When asked whether she is signed on to reprise the role of river goddess Io officially, Arterton said her contract for the original film included the option of signing her to future chapters of “Clash.”
“When you’re offered the original role they option you on further movies, they do,” she said. “It’s always dependent on whether the film does well at the box office, which it did.”
Arterton added that she wants Io to be less ethereal and more physical in the second go-round. “I think she needs to be less mythical and more real and go for the fighting,” she said. “It’s fun, as well, doing all that stuff.”
