When Louis Leterrier was announced as the director of Warner Bros.' Clash of the Titans, anyone who saw the filmmaker's The Incredible Hulk knew that he was the perfect man for the job. The original 1981 film is a tour de force of action, spectacle and stop-motion visual effects set in the realm of the classic Greek myths that was short on brains, but big on brawnâ¦ and way fun.
IGN visited the set of the remake at Longcross Studios in England, where among other things we hung out in the city of Argos -- or at least a re-creation of same.
"I love the original film," Leterrier told the assembled group of visiting journalists. "I, just like you guys, grew up watching this movie. I think I saw it before Star Wars, so this was my first like 'wow' experience. So I just didn't want to do it like the same but different. The only way to make it mine [was] to really make it personal, to rewrite the screenplay to â¦ take the elements I thought were really [integral]. I could incorporate in my vision of the film and then change the rest, and actually inspire myself on other mythology and other ideas and stuff like that. And then thinking about it as more than just one movie, creating a universe, creating something that can expand and have a small relationship that can bloom or get complicated."
