Sam Worthington has been out and about promoting his new comic book venture with Radical Publishing, entitled The Last Days of American Crime. At a recent press event the actor turned producer spoke to the media about two of his upcoming films including Clash of the Titans 2 and the re-release of Avatar. Check out what Worthington had to say…
He spoke about the production of Clash of the Titans 2 and stressed that the sequel will actually be shot in 3D unlike its predecessor, which was converted later on.
“Shot in 3D. Do put that in and make them f–king aware… When I read Clash 2, they came to me the other day. I said, ‘I kinda dig where it’s going, but can we make the character more of this? Can we make it more of that? Can I get to play a lot more and get involved and have a lot more f–king fun than just being a young man who has to stand there and look pretty?’ I’m sick of doing that, so it’s kind of a case of, ‘How do we make Perseus a lot more fun?’ So we’re sort of shaping it down that track. And Warner Bros. has been nice enough to give us a bit on input.”
Not only does he want the production to be right, but he’s noticed a few flaws in his character. It’s hard to take someone seriously who wears a skirt but Russell Crowe pulled it off in Gladiator. So, there’s no excuse Sam. He also spoke about the new footage (only 8 minutes) that will appear in the re-release of Avatar as well as when the second film will finally start shooting.
“I wish we added eight hours. I think the first cut I saw was about six hours long… There’s a couple of extra hunting scenes. There’s a much-speculated and blogged sex scene everyone keeps f–king harping on about. To be honest, I think everyone’s going to be disappointed that’s it’s not blue porn… But there’s a lot of other character parts. Giovanni [Ribisi] stuff and Stephen Lang stuff. So it’s up to Jim. I know Jim would only release it if it enhanced the story by putting it back in.”
As for the filming of Avatar 2...
“Avatar 2 will be whenever Jim decides to write it. I think he’s in Thailand at the moment or trying to save the gulf. But I’m sure he’s going to put pen to paper soon.”
Avatar is scheduled to hit theaters again on August 27th and Clash of the Titans 2 sometime in 2012.
