BILL Nighy has officially joined the Clash of the Titans sequel, known in some online circles as Wrath of the Titans.

The popular British actor will play the fallen god Hephaestus.

Nighy will line up alongside returning faces Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes and Danny Huston, along with newcomers Rosamund Pike, Toby Kebbell and Edgar Ramirez.

The sequel will be set 10 years after the events of the first movie as Perseus (again played by Worthington) attempts to put his heroic escapades behind him and live life as a fisherman and single dad to son Hellus.

Unfortunately, the Gods have bigger plans for him and he soon finds himself drawn into a struggle for supremacy between the gods and the Titans as the weakened gods face a new challenge from the leader of the imprisoned Titans – namely, Kronos, father to Neeson’s Zeus, Fiennes’ Hades and Huston’s Poseidon.

When Zeus is imprisoned, Perseus needs help from Andromeda (Pike), Hephaestus (Nighy) and Poseidon’s boy Argenor (Kebbell) to journey into the underworld and rescue him.

The film will be directed by Battle: LA‘s Jonathan Liebsman and has just started shooting on stages outside London before heading off to locations including Surrey, South Wales and Tenerife.
