“Immortals” is the new movie – currently filming in Canada- that is based on another hero of Greek Mythology, Theseus. The young Greek warrior is portrayed by Henry Cavill.
To save mankind, warrior Theseus (Henry Cavill of TV’s The Tudors) leads his troops into battle alongside the immortal Greek gods to fight dark forces unleashed by the elder Titans. Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) directs Mickey Rourke as King Hyperion, Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) as oracle priestess Phaedra and Kellan Lutz (Twilight) as Poseidon. Gianni Nunnari said he and producing partner Mark Canton are aiming to serve “a great Greek cocktail mixed with testosterone.”
The screenplay is the product of two successful Greek-American screenwriters, brothers Charley and Vlas Parlapanides.
When asked how Henry is getting into his role, director Tarsem Singh shared, “Pretty fantastic. I met him about a year and something ago. I switched the script, he would read it right. I’d switch it again, he’d read it the way I wanted. I knew that was the guy I wanted.”
Tarsem added, “I told him, I don’t want a six-pack, I want an eight pack. He was pretty pudgy when I first met him.” Now the young actor has created a great body which will make Theseus the next hot warrior in Hollywood.
“Immortals” opens in theaters everywhere next year.
