Edgar Ramirez Cast In WRATH OF THE TITANS
Edgar Ramirez has been cast in the role of Ares, the God of War, in the sequel Wrath of the Titansdirected by Jonathan Liebesman for Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures.
Deadline is reporting that the actor is very clost to inking a deal to star opposite Sam Worthington. Ramirez recently has been getting a lot of accolades for his performance in Carlos, the five and a half-hour Olivier Assayas-directed biopic. His performance has received a Golden Globes and SAG Award nominations for his breakout performance as terrorist Carlos the Jackal.
He would likely be nominated for an Oscar if it were not for the fact that Carlo aired on the Sundance Channel before it was released in theaters by IFC. As a result the Academy Award deemed the film ineligible. Prior to this Ramirez was best know for his role as a memorable assassin in The Bourne Ultimatum.
Clash of the Titans was ripped apart and rightly so, it sucked. The sequel is adding some great actors and has been “promised” to be a lot better for fans. Let’s hope that Wrath of the Titans turns out to be as good as I hope.
