First Look at Tarsem's 'Immortals'
The Gods bless us... we have just 3 weeks left to finish up our work on this brutal kick ass of a project, it's fast and furious, but the work is awesome and we are having a blast...
Probably my most anticipated film of 2011 -Brad Vrevet (ropesofsilicon.com)
Entertainment Weekly has just debuted the following four first look images at Tarsem Singh's Immortals starring Henry Cavill who was recently cast in the title role of Zack Snyder's Superman: Man of Steel.
Immortals is very similar to the Clash of the Titans story and finds Cavill playing Theseus, a warrior from Greek mythology, who leads a fight against the imprisoned titans in a story where gods fight alongside mortals. Phaedra (Freida Pinto), an oracle priestess joins Theseus on his quest to prevent the cataclysmic war from erupting.
The EW first look gives us looks at both Henry Cavill (top left) and Freida Pinto (bottom left) as well as Twilight actor Kellan Lutz (bottom right) as Poseidon and Mickey Rourke (top right) as the mad king Hyperion. The film co-stars Stephen Dorff, Luke Evans, John Hurt and Isabel Lucas.
Universal has set a November 11 release for the film, and in other Tarsem news Relativity has set a July 29, 2012 release for his follow-up film, The Brothers Grimm: Snow White starring Julia Roberts as the title character. For those not familiar with the name, Tarsem Singh directed The Cell starring Jennifer Lopez and Vince Vaughn as well as the excellent visual feast, The Fall.
