Edgar Ramirez and Toby Kebbell (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) have joined Jonathan Liebesman’s Clash of the Titans sequel, Wrath of the Titans. According to The Wrap, Ramirez, who gave a breakthrough performance in last year’s critically-acclaimed Carlos, is in talks to play the god of war Ares while Kebbell is about to accept the role of Agenor. The pair will join returning actors Sam Worthington, Gemma Arterton, Liam Neeson, and Ralph Fiennes.
Hit the jump for more potential casting on the upcoming sequel. Wrath of the Titans is set to be released in 3D on March 30, 2012.
The Wrap also reports that Bill Nighy is being courted to play the role of Greek god Hephaestus, but “his participation is far from official at this point.” Also in the mix is Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger) who is on the shortlist of actresses testing for the role of Andromeda. The role was played in the first movie by Alexa Davalos.
The shortlist of actresses testing for the role of Andromeda also includes Georgina Haig (Wasted on the Young), Janet Montgomery (Black Swan), Dominique McElligott (Moon) and Clemence Poesy (127 Hours).
