War Of The Gods Movie Updates

New cast member and release date announced.


Stephen Dorff (Blade) has been added to the cast of War Of The Gods. He will play Stavros, who according to Variety, is “a master thief who joins Theseus on his quest to help free Greece from the dark threat of the Titans." The movie also boasts a cast of Henry Cavill as Theseus, Kellan Lutz as Poseidon, Mickey Rourke as King Hyperion and Freida Pinto as the oracle priestess Phaedra.


War Of The Gods concerns the battles waged by Theseus, a purported bastard 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 film has also announced a release date of November 11, 2011. It is being directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell) who, in an interview with Empire, describes the movie as:

“It’s turning into, basically, Caravaggio meets Fight Club,” he said. “It’s a really hardcore action film done in Renaissance painting style. I want to see how that goes; it’s turned into something really cool. This guy who I really love, who’s the only one person in it right now, is the brother in The Tudors, Henry Cavill. I’m going for a very contemporary look on top of that so I’m kind of going with, you know, Renaissance time with electricity. So it’s a bit like Baz Luhrman doing Romeo + Juliet in Mexico; it’s just talking a particular Greek tale and half contemporising it and telling it.”


The movie has reportedly been going back and forth on changing the name to Dawn of War but nothing official has been released. It will use similar green screen techniques as seen from 300 which is no surprise since it has the same producers. Filming is to start next week in Montreal.
