War of Gods Name Change, New Cast

Not surprisingly trying to distance itself from “Clash of the Titans”, Relativity Media’s upcoming Greek mythology epic “War of Gods” has been renamed “Immortals” according to a press release issued today by Universal Pictures.

John Hurt and Isabel Lucas have also joined the cast of the feature which follows the young warrior Theseus (Henry Cavill), who leads his men into battle with the immortal Greek gods to defeat evil and the powerful elder gods of the Titans in order to save mankind.

Hurt will portray the earthly manifestation of Zeus, who serves as Theseus’ mentor. Lucas will play Athena. Stephen Dorff, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, Joseph Morgan, Freida Pinto and Mickey Rourke also star.

Tarsem Singh is directing with filming kicking off this week in Montreal. The film is currently scheduled for a November 11th 2011 release.
