Kellan Lutz, who plays Emmett Cullen in the Twilight movies, will get a little godly as Poseidon in War of the Gods. Directed by Tarsem Singh (The Fall), the film also stars Henry Cavill (The Tudors), Mickey Rourke, and Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire). According to Variety, the “story follows a young warrior Theseus who leads his men into battle with the immortal Greek gods to defeat evil elder gods of the Titans in order to save mankind.” Presumably, this Poseidon will get off easier than he does in God of War III (although no one really gets off in that game unless the player gets a murder-boner).
Lutz will next be seen in the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, which hits theaters on April 30th.
[Update: Heat Vision is calling the movie “Dawn of War”. They also say that Rourke plays Hyperion who is on a murderous rampage across Greece. Poseidon helps Theseus in his quest to stop Hyperion]
