'Battle: Los Angeles' Helmer Jonathan Liebesman To Direct 'Clash Of The Titans' Sequel

"Clash of the Titans" wasn't a critical darling when it hit theaters earlier this year; while it was seen as a loving tribute to the original film, issues were raised with the script and the comparative dearth of action. The film was a box office success nonetheless, with more than $491 million grossed to date. In other words... a sequel was inevitable.

That sequel continues to come together. Writers had already been confirmed: Greg Berlanti ("Green Lantern"), David Leslie Johnson ("Red Riding Hood") and newcomer Dan Mazeau developed a treatment together, with Mazeau and Johnson now tackling a script. Today brings the news that "Battle: Los Angeles" director Jonathan Liebesman will helm the film for Warner Bros. and Legendary, The Hollywood Reporter reveals. Stars Sam Worthington and Gemma Arterton are expected to reprise their roles.
