Coming Soon to a Theater Near You!

Posted on September 14th, 2009 by

Clash of the Titans, a “classic” in its own right is being remade: Notable cast members include: Liam Neeson as Zeus, Ralph Fiennes as Hades, Sam Worthington (from the latest Terminator) as Perseus, and Polly Walker (from HBO’s Rome) as Cassiopeia.

Also scheduled for production is Agora, a film about Hypatia, starring Rachel Weisz and directed by Alejandro Amenábar.

The film focuses on one of the most impressive female figures in history – Hypatia, a leading thinker in the Rome-governed Alexandria, considered to be the first notable woman of mathematics. She studied philosophy and astronomy, and both pagan and Christian students from far and wide came together to study under her. “For all men on account of her extraordinary dignity and virtue admired her the more.”
