YES! YES! YES! Awsome news. Absolutely loved the original, and Ray Harryhousen is a legend. But, I for one, LOVED the remake of King Kong, even though I loved the original. (not the 70s remake)

So Clash of the Titans has the potential to be AWSOME! More Greek legends need to be put on film.

Ok, this sounds great...i just hope they don't make the Greek mythological characters too over the top..i'd like to see real detail in the characters and how Medusa really was beautiful before her conversion to the sexy snake haired, bow-arrowed toting self...i can see Angelina Jolie as Medusa..she would definetly pull that off..

A great classic movie that could be great as a remake. As always, I just hope it's done well with a good screenwrite and good director. Although the director of LoEG doesn't thrill me, but having Kasdan do the screenwrite is a good sign.

I like Norrington, he did a very good job on Blade and I am happy to see him back at work. He messed up on LXG, but it sounds like it had lots of problems.

They hired a director who is visually unstable? I mean Blade was good, but it was rather scattershot visually, and LXG was just a more severe case. He has some interesting perspective on directing, but he doesn't know how to make anything coherent in terms of visual style.

Let's hope Clash doesn't resemble LXG which looked jimmy rigged and stapled together.

Norrington did direct the first Blade, which was great and the best one of the trilogy. SO this may be interesting.

Good grief people, stop complaining or worrying. What sort of worth is accuracy to a classic in movies like this? Hopefully it'll be an all new movie along a similar mood. That's all that matters. After all, the original entirely messed with the source material... who cares? I mean, I'm a Classicist, it's my field to study Greek myth, and I don't mind so long as a good story is told (the literary purists in this regard don't generally even know the myths properly, else they'd understand how even in antiquity things were altered between writers.) Movie making is art, and art adapts to say something to its current audience, whether that is in the form of a statement or simple entertainment. As such, expecting it to rightly 'recreate' the original is as ridiculous as wanting the myths to be directly adhered to. But then we'd have no Pegasos (who is spruing along with his brother Khrusaor from the blood of Medusa); we'd have no Kallobos... indeed, I shan't think, if I recall, even have any 'Titan' as the original movie portrayed it, and certainly not a Kraken (which is in no way Greek. Maybe Kharibdis.) But where's the fun in that? Oh, I admit, I'd want to see something exact... it'd be kinda neat to see exact adherence to the old stories for one... but barring that impossibility, I think it's better not to worry about things being perhaps messed up, and just enjoy the movies. Good grief, this is a monster movie! It's not a folk tale like the original Perseus story. So how much can we really expect from it? So let's stop complaining and just expect to at least bloody enjoy the thing, shall we?

And to whoever mentioned Tiamat as a monster... wherefrom that? Tiamat is Babylonian, not Greek.

Spaghetti sauce oozing out of Medusa's neck stump. They better keep that part.
