Slumdog’s Pinto joins War Of The Gods

Greek epic has echoes of 300 and Titans...

 

Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto has joined film and music video director Tarsem Singh’s epic-sounding War Of The Gods.

Charley and Vlas Parlapanides’ script was bought for around seven figures by Relativity Media, and has been given a pass over by Machine Gun Preacher writer Jason Keller.

The flick's official description pits “purported bastard” Theseus (Henry Cavill, below), living in ancient Greece, against the long-imprisoned Titans, who want to use demons to restore their power.

Discovering that he is the king’s son, Theseus is “fated to become his country’s greatest hero”.

Variety report that Pinto will play Phaedra, an oracle priestess who must join on Theseus' quest. Warner Bros took a look at the script when they were considering their Clash Of The Titans remake, but eventually passed on it.

Opportunely, shooting on War will begin the same week that Titans hits cinemas on 2 April.

Percy Jackson, Clash... Do we need another god-flavoured flick?

      It's about time Henry Cavill landed a big role.
