Jonathan Liebesman will take over for Louis Leterrier on Clash of the Titans 2. The sequel will be shot in 3D from the beginning instead of being converted. Cast members Sam Worthington and Gemma Arterton will be returning.
Despite receiving a wave of bad publicity because of a weak 2D-to-3D conversion, Clash of the Titans was able to rake in more than $490 million worldwide.
Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper will play San Francisco cops in an untitled action/comedy from writer Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air). The film follows two cops who are forced to look to their fathers for help with a difficult case.
Reynolds will be seen this fall in Buried from Lionsgate. As for Cooper, he has The Dark Fields set to open in January 2011.
The Nutcracker in 3D will be released domestically by Freestyle Releasing and Cinemarket Films on November 24. The film stars Elle Fanning, Nathan Lane and John Turturro, and it also features new songs by Tim Rice.
Fanning is building quite a career for herself. She'll also be seen this fall opposite Stephen Dorff in Sophia Coppola's Somewhere.
