Liam Neeson: Back as Zeus in 'Clash of the Titans' Sequel

Irish actor says the new movie will feature 'some kickass stuff.'

Count Liam Neeson in for the sequel to the wildly successful -- and oft snickered about -- 'Clash of the Titans.'

Neeson told the Belfast Telegraph that he's “very much looking forward” to reprising the role of the Greek god Zeus in the film. He revealed that filming will begin March 2011.

"I've read half the script," he said. "It's going to be some kickass stuff and a very human story to it."

Sam Worthington (Perseus), Gemma Arterton (Io) and Ralph Fiennes (Hades) are attached to the sequel, which has a tentative release date of Spring 2012. James Franco is reportedly in talks to play Poseidon's son Agenor.
