What? You haven't read the Rick Riordan series? Are you crazy? Go check the book out from the library or go buy it. You could borrow one of my three copies, but I have pressed them on all of my friends. We are crazy about Percy. We have read the books and listened to the audio book and now we will see the movie.
From the Hollywood Reporter (a website I will say I have never visited before today):
Pierce Brosnan, Uma Thurman, Sean Bean, Kevin McKidd and Melina Kanakaredes are heading to Mount Olympus.
The quintet has been cast in Fox 2000's fantasy-adventure adaptation "Percy Jackson" as classical Greek gods Chiron (Brosnan), Medusa (Thurman), Zeus (Bean), Poseidon (McKidd) and Athena (Kanakaredes). Aries, Hades and Persephone have not yet been cast.
The film, being directed by Chris Columbus, is shooting in Vancouver for a February release.
Hopefully Pierce will redeem himself after his rather "comic" performance in Mamma Mia!
And don't forget, Book 5 will be release on May 5th. Have you reserved your copies?
