[Movies] Clash Of The Titans 3 Isn't Happening Any Time Soon

According to a producer...
In an interview with IGN, producer Basil Iwanyk revealed that there would likely not be a sequel to 2010's Clash of the Titans and 2012's Wrath of the Titans any time soon. Here are highlights:
On if Clash of the Titans 3 will happen: "Not at this point, but you never know. In terms of Clash of the Titans 3, it's one of those situations where we've seen it a million times; a movie will kind of float away and then come back when it's supposed to come back. You'd think that there was three and a half, four years of nonstop Clash of the Titans activity, and I think it is, "Okay, what's the new idea? How do you make it fresh?" You know, a lot of movies have come out in that world, including Immortals and 300. So there will be a time and place where someone will come up with a great idea for it and how to make it feel different and fresh from the previous ones. Then we'll hopefully move forward on that."
On Gods of Egypt: "It's like the Egyptian -- the simplest way to say it, because it's the Egyptians myths, is the world is a lot more through the eyes of Alex Proyas, so it's a lot more fantastical. We call it "Planet Egypt." We're shooting the entire thing on green screen in Sydney. But it'll be photo-real green screen, not stylized like 300. People will wonder, like, "Where the hell did you shoot that?" And it's a lot more of an adventure movie, like The Thief of Bagdad, those old movies. Clash was a very serious movie. Gods of Egypt I think is a lot more Raiders and Pirates than it is those movies. But it's an incredible world. So yeah, that goes on March 23rd."
On if there's any part of him that doesn't like the fact it's all green screen: "Not a part of it at all. You look at Gravity. I mean, those Star Wars movies were so long ago -- and I'm a Star Wars fan. I've been watching Star Wars with my son, who's five, a lot. Even in the first Star Wars, where they added in some of those visual effects elements, it takes you out of the movie. But that was a long time ago... in a galaxy far, far away. [laughs] We're coming out in 2016. The stuff now is so cutting edge and so real, I don't have that worry. It would shock you how many movies are now green screen, to people who don't even realize. Obviously, you build a little bit of it, but these days I'm not that worried about it."
