Greek gods get cast for Percy Jackson film

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Thursday, March 26, 2009

Pierce Brosnan, Sean Bean, Uma Thurman, Kevin McKidd and Melina Kanakerides will play Greek gods in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.

Based on the first book in Rick Riordan's young adult series, Percy is a 12-year-old that discovers his father is the sea god Poseidon (to be played by McKidd) and he is destined to be a major player in a prophesized war between the gods and the titans. Logan Lerman (3:10 to Yuma, Hoot) has already been cast in the main role as Percy while Brandon T. Jackson and Alexandra Daddario will play his close pals.

Brosnan will play Chiron; Bean is Zeus; Thurman will play Medusa; and Kanakerides will be Athena. Variety also mentions that there are three remaining Greek god roles left to fill, those being for Persephone, Aries and Hades. Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) starts directing the film next month in Vancouver.

The fifth and final Percy Jackson novel, The Last Olympian, is published on May 5.
