Sam Worthington Talks CLASH OF THE TITANS 2, AVATAR 2, and the AVATAR Re-Release Deleted Scenes

     July 9, 2010

Today, I got the chance to site down with Sam Worthington (and his partners John Schwarz and Michael Schwarz) to talk about his their imprint Full Clip Productions, which is working to develop comics with Radical Studios.  At the end of the roundtable interview, Worthington was good enough to provide us with brief updates on Clash of the Titans 2 and Avatar 2.

He was open about the first Clash‘s problem both in terms of the final cut and the crappy 3D conversion.  He said this time they’re shooting it in 3D and he’s been speaking to Warner Bros. directly about his ideas for the film.  As for Avatar 2, he makes it sounds like Cameron hasn’t got around to writing it yet.  Hit the jump for the full quotes and again, be on the lookout for the full interview soon as we got a ton of updates on what Full Clip is trying to do and the projects they have in development at Radical Studios.

On Clash of the Titans 2:

Sam Worthington: Clash 2 I think we start shooting early next year and it was be 3D this time. Shot in 3D. Do put that in and make them f–king aware.

How involved are you going to be in shaping Clash 2 now that you’re in a much stronger position?

Worthington: Well, I do that a lot anyway, trying to put a stamp on it. Whether it’s the right idea or not, it’s up to them in the end. When I read Clash 2, they came to me the other day. I said, “I kinda dig where it’s going, but can we make the character more of this? Can we make it more of that? Can I get to play a lot more and get involved and have a lot more f–king fun than just being a young man who has to stand there and look pretty?” I’m sick of doing that, so it’s kind of a case of, “How do we make Perseus a lot more fun?” So we’re sort of shaping it down that track. And Warner Bros. has been nice enough to give us a bit on input.

What were your thoughts on the post conversion and the changes that movie went through before release?

Worthington: The movies always change. It suddenly became a rolling, runaway train in some parts. In regards to the conversion, I’m a Jim Cameron boy, so people know my opinions.

On Avatar 2 and deleted scenes from Avatar:

Worthington: Avatar 2 will be whenever Jim decides to write it. I think he’s in Thailand at the moment or trying to save the gulf. But I’m sure he’s going to put pen to paper soon.

Can you talk about the additional eight minutes that will be in the theatrical release?

Worthington: I wish we added eight hours. I think the first cut I saw was about six hours long.

Do you know what’s in the additional eight minutes?

Worthington: No, I don’t. He hasn’t told us. There’s a couple of extra hunting scenes. There’s a much-speculated and blogged sex scene everyone keeps f–king harping on about. To be honest, I think everyone’s going to be disappointed that’s it’s not blue porn.

They’re making that.

Worthington: Yeah. But there’s a lot of other character parts. Giovanni [Ribisi] stuff and Stephen Lang stuff. So it’s up to Jim. I know Jim would only release it if it enhanced the story by putting it back in.

Is there more stuff on Earth?

Worthington: Yeah there is. We shot all that. When we first saw all that, it didn’t [work]. You just want to get to the planet. It’s kind of a slow burn. Jim always wanted it to be a slow burn start so that you would adjust to your eyes and adjust the world, but it because too much of slow burn. It was like, “hurry the f–k up, man.”
