Louis Leterrier - Director Louis Leterriere: 'Clash Of The Titans Remake Was Famously Horrible'

Director Louis Leterrier has lashed out at Warner Bros. executives for risking his reputation as a filmmaker by rushing to convert his Clash Of The Titans remake into an critically-panned 3D blockbuster.

Promoting his new movie Now You See Me in an interview with website The Huffington Post, Leterrier calls his 2010 movie "famously horrible", insisting movie bosses rushed to add 3D as "a gimmick to steal money from the audience."

The Transporter filmmaker claims Warner Bros. executives forced him to take the blame after the ancient Greek action epic was panned by fans and critics alike, but now he insists the finished product was not the movie he signed on to make.

He says, "It was a very tough experience. I was literally thrown under the bus... I still have a good relationship with Warner Bros., but at one point it was like, 'Yeah, Louis chose the 3D.' And I was like, 'No, guys, I didn't choose the 3D. I actually told you it's not working. I couldn't control it. I said don't do it.'

"It was famously rushed and famously horrible. It was absolutely horrible, the 3D. Nothing was working, it was just a gimmick to steal money from the audience. I'm a good boy and I rolled with the punches and everything, but it's not my movie."
