Sam Worthington, who stars as Perseus in the remake of Clash of the Titans, told a group of reporters that after two weeks of filming, he's about halfway through slaying mythical monsters. Louis Leterrier directs the remake of the 1981 film, which showcased Ray Harryhausen stop-motion-animated monsters.
"We've took on the Medusa, we took on the witches," Worthington said in a group interview on Friday in Beverly Hills, Calif., where he was promoting Terminator Salvation. "Next week we've got to take on the Scorpiox. Then we've got to f--kin' kill the Kraken. At the moment it's all-guns-blaring kind of thing."
Worthington added that he was excited from the moment he read the script and Leterrier's execution has fulfilled his expectations. "It's going to be good," he said. "I think Louis's got a very good eye, and it's a great bunch of people I'm working with. I read it, and I jumped around the room with a ruler trying to chop the head off my girlfriend."
Also, expect to see Worthington showing a little more leg than usual in this role. "I've got a skirt on," he said. "I don't think you can make a toga look that manly. I couldn't, anyway, so I said, 'Armor me up. Give me armor and a buzz cut, give me a skirt and a sword and let me loose.'"
Clash of the Titans opens March 26, 2010.
