Welsh Actor Luke Evans must love been a god and a greek god especially. He is currently playing Apollo in Clash of The Titans remake but he is keeping the Greek Mythology robes on as he is playing Zeus (part Liam Neeson plays in The Titans) for Tarsem Singh‘s War of Gods(aka Dawn Of War). Evans was to play Apollo again but Corey Sevier will take over as Apollo, Evans tell us;
“We have the very beautiful Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) who is playing Athena, my daughter,” he said. “And John Hurt plays me as an old man. In addition, we have Mickey Rourke, Stephen Dorff, Henry Cavill, Freida Pinto.“
He further goes on to mention the difference between this project and The Titans movie –
“[‘War of the Gods’] really plays on the human side of the battle, whereas there are so many monsters in ‘Clash of the Titans.’ This film really is very strongly based on Earth, I would say, and it is about the human battle. The gods have a very strong presence in [‘War of the Gods’], and it’s a much bigger action film; this is way more action.“
“We’ve been training for nearly two months for these huge battle scenes, huge fights. Whereas the gods in ‘Clash of the Titans’ do very little but stay in Mount Olympus, in [‘War of the Gods’] they are hands-on — especially Zeus. I’ve had training in every weapon you could imagine a god using.“
What Luke Evans does mention is that The Zeus in War of Gods wont be your traditional Zeus like how Liam Nesson played it-
“In this one, he gets some gory weapons and gets to do some superhuman things — godlike things — with them. As only Zeus, king of the gods, could do”
War of Gods should be starting filming this month in Canada and will also star Mickey Rourke, John Hurt, Kellan Lutz , Stephen Dorff and Freida Pinto with the date of November 11th 2011 as its targeted American release date.
