Pierce Brosnan and Uma Thurman are Greek gods

In Chris Columbus’ Percy Jackson

Pierce Brosnan, Uma Thurman, Sean Bean Kevin McKidd and Melina Kanakaredes have signed on to star in Percy Jackson, Chris Columbus’ latest attempt to launch a kiddie pic franchise.

The fantasy adventure is adapted from Rick Riordan’s popular children’s novel The Lightning Thief.

Jackson’s plot will find the titular lad – Poseidon’s half-human son (Logan Lerman), who must traverse present-day America to prevent a war between the gods.

So who are the thesps playing? Here’s your list: Brosnan is Chiron, Thurman is Medusa, McKidd has signed on as Poseidon, Bean is Zeus and Kanakaredes is Athena.

Columbus is still looking for an Aries, a Hades and a Persephone. He’d better hurry up, though, as the film is gearing up to shoot now in Vancouver and aiming for a February release next year.
