A batch of new photos for "Clash of the Titans" has been found. Five of the overall eight fresh images are stills from the action fantasy and are featured in the latest issue of Empire Magazine. The rest of them, meanwhile, are pictures from the set and are included in the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly.

All of the five stills present the leading character played by Sam Worthington, Perseus. Running amidst fire around him, leading a band of warrior and taking a hide behind a broken down pillar are some of the scenes he is seen in the photos. Meanwhile, most of the on-set pictures give out first look at Liam Neeson as Zeus.

In a quotation tagging along the photos, director Louis Leterrier explained how Neeson got involved, saying "Liam's sons were like, 'You get to play Zeus, that's cool, Dad, do it!' That's why he took the job." He also praised the actor, "[We had] the hottest week in England this summer, but Liam was such a trouper. He never complained. He always had little fans blowing in his face but he never said, 'I want to take off this armor.' He stayed in character as Zeus."

"Clash of the Titans" is a modern version of the 1981 Greek mythology film. It revolves around Perseus. Helpless to save his family from Hades, he volunteers to lead a mission to defeat the vengeful god of the underworld before Hades can seize power from Zeus and unleash hell on earth.

Sam Worthington leads with supports from Gemma Arterton as Io, Mads Mikkelsen as Draco, Jason Flemyng as Acrisius and Alexa Davalos as Andromeda. Directed by the man behind "The Transporter 2" and 2008's "The Incredible Hulk", this movie eyes a March 26, 2010 U.S. release.

I am indirectly involved in film distribution in Australia and the rumor over the past few months is that Sam Worthington has been attached to play an Australian war surgeon ( Craig Jurisevic) in a new war film to be directed by Eva Orner. Apparently based on his Kosovo war experience. I have researched the guy ( i.e., googled him) and he is a trauma surgeon in South Australia who somehow ended up fighting with the Kosovo Liberation Army against Milosevic forces during the ethnic cleansing campaign in Kosovo in 1999. Rumored to have set up a surgical unit in a cave at the frontline and conducted many patrols behind enemy lines to save fleeing refugees and injured fighters. Also worked with some US Special Forces during that conflict. Returned home quietly but subsequently joined the Australian Army in 2006 and was decorated for service in East Timor and Afghanistan. He is due to release a book in early 2010, but apparently the movie hawks have latched onto it even before its release. It has been quite hush- hush but a reliable source has told me that Worthington in soon to visit Australia to me the character he is going to play…… Has anyone got any more news? If not, spread the word so that we can dig up some more info about this rising star. Cheers !!!!
