Gemma Arterton, seen most recently in “Quantum of Solace” as Strawberry Fields, is joining the cast of the “Clash of the Titans” remake as the demi-godess Io, set for release (according to IMDB.com) in 2010. Ms. Arterton is fantasticly beautiful and it was a shame she got douched by motor oil in Daniel Craig’s second outing as 007.
When I was a kid, I loved the original “Clash of the Titans” with Harry Hamlin and Burges Meredith. I watched it a few years ago in HD and fell asleep. Plus, holy nudity! No wonder I liked this PG gem back in my younger days. Still, I won’t forget my mom making me a Perseus costume to wear to my third grade Halloween party. I wanted to be authentic and show my bare legs, but realized my tighty whities showed every time I bent over. Instead of looking cool at that party, I looked like a nerd with my jeans underneath my toga. Sniff, sniff.
