Pals Neeson And Fiennes To Clash As Titans

LIAM NEESON is set to bounce back after the shock death of his wife NATASHA RICHARDSON by starring opposite longtime pal RALPH FIENNES in the CLASH OF THE TITANS remake.
The two stars are set to play warring gods in the update of the cult 1981 film.
Neeson will play Zeus, according to The Hollywood Reporter, while Fiennes is in negotiations to take on the role of Hades, ruler of the underworld.
The film set will be a more cheerful get-together for Neeson and Fiennes, who last met at Richardson's New York state funeral in March (09).
The all-star cast will also feature Aussie hunk Sam Worthington as Greek hero Perseus and James Bond stars Gemma Arterton and Mads Mikkelson.
Mikkelson will play Draco, a fearless warrior, while Brit Arterton will take on the part of Io, a love interest of the movie's protagonist Perseus.
The original film starred Ursula Andress as Aphrodite, Sir Laurence Olivier as Zeus and Dame Maggie Smith. Harry Hamlin was the original Perseus.
