"Clash" Remake Lands a Titan of a Screenwriter

by | April 18, 2007 | Comments

Even if you know next to nothing about screenwriters, I bet you’re a fan of Lawrence Kasdan … even if you don’t know it. The guy’s biggest successes include "The Empire Strikes Back," "Return of the Jedi," and "Raiders of the Lost Ark," and now he’s returning to adventure genre to pen the "Clash of the Titans" remake.

Adored by a lot more people than you might think, "Clash of the Titans" is an old-fashioned adventure epic that details the heroic travels of Perseus and features a whole bunch of Greek gods and goddesses. Plus it’s got flying horses, snake-haired woman, and three-headed dogs. (Pegasus, Medusa, and Cerberus, respectively.) Here’s hoping Mr. Kasdan removes Bubo the Owl when he writes his first draft.

No word yet on who’ll be directing the new "Titans" for Warner Bros., but they should probably keep Mr. Kasdan on writing detail only. His last directorial effort was "Dreamcatcher," and I’ve yet to meet one person who likes that movie. To be fair, Mr. Kasdan has written and/or directed a lot more good movies than bad: "Body Heat," "The Big Chill," "Silverado," and "The Accidental Tourist" pretty much speak for themselves.
