Ramirez, Kebbell, Nighy & Atwell In Talks For Wrath of The Titans

TheWrap is reporting on some new casting information for sequel to Clash of The Titans which is titled Wrath of The Titans. We already know that Sam Worthington, Gemma Arterton, Liam Nesson and Ralph Fiennes are reprising their roles.

Edgar Ramirez (Domino, Carlos) is in final negations to play God of War Ares which had previously been rumored for Javier Bardem. Tobey Kebbell (RockNRolla, Dead Man Shoes, Prince of Persia) is also in talks for the role of Agenor who might be the son of Poseidon a half god similar to Perseus. James Franco had been rumored for the role of Agenor previously. Bill Nighy has been offered the role of Hephaestus the immortal blacksmith of the Gods but isn't as solid as the previous offers.

In an odd twist Warner Bros. and director Jonathan Liebesman are looking to recast the role of Princess Andromeda which had been portayed by Alexa Davalos in the original film. The site lists Captain American actress Hayley Atwell as one of the many actresses testing for role. Others include French actress Clemence Poesy who is best known from In Bruges, 127 Hours and Deathly Hollows. Also Dominique McElligott (Moon) and Georgina Haig (Wasted On The Youth) who both tested for Gwen Stacy in the Spider-Man which went to Emma Stone. Black Swan supporting actress Janet Montgomery is also in the mix. I expect the role to be more than just the girl in distress considering the involvement of Atwell and Poesy.
