Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes Join 'Clash of the Titans' Cast


Liam Neeson is billed to play the character of Zeus, the father of Perseus, while Ralph Fiennes is set to star as Hades, ruler of the underworld who tries to dethrone Zeus.

Upcoming action-drama-fantasy movie "Clash of the Titans" has two new cast, they are Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes. Both actors join the film's other stars, including Sam Worthington and Gemma Arterton.

It has been confirmed that Liam will portray the role of Zeus, the father of Perseus, who is played by Sam. His character is described as a wise yet sometimes ill-tempered king of the gods. As for Ralph, he is billed to star as Hades, ruler of the underworld who aims to dethrone Zeus and rule over all.

Scheduled to hit the theaters in U.S. on March 26, 2010, the film will be shot later this month in the U.K.

Based its story on the script penned by Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay, "Clash of the Titans" is a remake of the 1981 film version of the myth of Perseus and his quest to battle both Medusa and the Kraken monster in order to save his beloved Princess Andromeda. In order to win the battle, he has to cut off the serpent-tressed head of Medusa, who can turn a man to stone with a single glance.

Liam Neeson's starring role in this big screen flick marks his first movie deal since the tragic death of his actress wife Natasha Richardson last month due to head injury as a result of skiing accident. His last film "Taken" was released earlier this year and has proven to be a surprise hit.

Ralph Fiennes, who besides becoming an actor also serves as an ambassador for UNICEF U.K., was last seen starring in "The Reader".
