New Greek Gods Movie - War Of The Gods/Dawn Of War?

Jumping on the already heaving bandwagon of Percy Jackson and Clash of the Titans comes "War of the Gods" (also know as "Dawn of War").

War of the Gods follows Theseus who retains an allegiance to his mother despite the fact that he longs to join the quest of a king who is battling demons in ancient Greece later embarks on a grail of discovery that has him finding he is the king's son and also fated to become his country's greatest hero as he leads the successful war against long-imprisoned Titans who are hoping to use the demons to restore their power.

The movie already has a few famous names attached including Kellan Lutz as Poseidon, Mickey Rourke as King Hyperion, Henry Cavill as Theseus , Freida Pinto as Phaedra, Luke Evans as Zeus and supposedly Stephen Dorff as Stavros, a master thief who joins Theseus on his quest. The movie will be directed by The Cell's Tarsem Singh and will begin shooting in early April in Montreal.

Hmmmmm....looks like the age of Greek/Roman Mythology is returning to the Big Screen in a big way after a break.

It would help if you read the date on the original post. March 2010. 'Immortals' didn't get it's official name until well after this post and is obviously now quite well known. I suggest in future you get your own facts straight before questioning others. Your future comments won't be approved if you take such a pompous tone!
