Lawrence Kasdan to Pen ‘Titans’ Remake

Clash of the TitansThe screenwriting legend behind The Empire Strikes Back will script the planned Clash of the Titans remake.

Lawrence Kasdan has been hired to pen the screenplay for the Warner Brothers Clash of the Titans remake, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A remake of the 1981 cult classic, Titans revolves around Zeus’ son, Perseus, and his journey to save Princess Andromeda during which he must complete various tasks set out by Zeus, including capturing Pegasus and slaying Medusa. The original was the last film for which stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen contributed his groundbreaking special effects.

The Oscar-nominated Kasdan is the writer behind such classic films as Return of the Jedi, Raiders of the Lost, and The Big Chill, but it’s his script for The Empire Strikes Back that still resonates with fans.

Kasdan penned 2003’s Dreamcatcher, based on the Stephen King story, and has since written, directed, and produced non-fantasy fare such as Mumford and Grand Canyon. He is executive producer on the upcoming In the Land of Women, written and directed by son Jon Kasdan, which opens Friday.

Travis Beacham (Killing on Carnival Row) wrote a draft for the remake. Lynn Harris is overseeing for Warner Brothers, while Basil Iwanyk is producing via Thunder Road.
