Now this is something we've been waiting for! CraveOnline has scored the first few paparazzi spy shots of Sam Worthington shooting on the set of Louis Leterrier's Clash of the Titans. Worthington plays the lead character Perseus, who embarks on a dangerous mission to defeat Hades, the vengeful god of the underworld. A few weeks ago some boring photos of a set under construction popped up, but these are the first photos we've seen of any actor in costume. And yes, I realize Worthington is wearing a skirt, but it's actually slightly longer than the one Harry Hamlin wore as Perseus in the original Clash of the Titans.
There's also another photo of British actor Pete Postlethwaite with a gnarly beard on the same set over at CraveOnline. Worthington was shooting on a set on the Canary Island of Tenerife. It looks like Leterrier is going to quite a few exotic locations to shoot Clash of the Titans, which is at least a good start. I'm excited to see more photos from this, as long as they stay out of spoiler territory, and will be following the production closely. I'm a big fan of the original Clash of the Titans and have high hopes for this, especially with Worthington leading the way.
