Having delivered another successful blockbuster movie "The Incredible Hulk", director Louis Leterrier quickly jumps to do another feature film project. The man behind the action film "The Transporter" and its sequel has been signed to helm a mythical movie "Clash of the Titans".

For the remake of 1981 Ray Harryhausen's movie of the same name, the filmmaker is going to team up with producer Basil Iwanyk. He will also helm the reboot based on the script provided by Lawrence Kasdan. It is further said that in directing the movie, he will be using the same techniques used for the shooting of "300", the green screen techniques.

"Clash of the Titans" resolves around Perseus, the son of Zeus, who in his quest to save his lover, Princess Andromeda, has to overcome a series of dangerous obstacles, including facing Medusa, a serpent-tressed woman whose single glance can turn any living things into a stone. The Warner Bros. Pictures is eyeing 2010 release.
