We’ve covered all of the Greek mythology epics that have been in the process of being made over the past couple of years quite a bit. Louis Leterrier’s Clash of the Titans came and went — to some pretty heavy negativity, no less — and now we wait patiently for Tarsem Singh‘s Immortals, which if you hadn’t heard, was formerly known as War of Gods.
The first set of images from Immortals have found their way to the internet by way of Rogue Pictures, and they’re good enough to make the November 11, 2011 release date sound just a little too far away.

In terms of excitement, you won’t find much, but stylistically you can already tell we’re probably in for a treat. It also helps knowing that Tarsem’s previous films like The Cell and The Fall have fittingly painted him as quite the master of visual film making. You’ll see Henry Cavill (The Tudors) in action as Theseus, Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) as Phaedra, and Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2) as King Hyperion.
Immortals follows the mythological tale of the young warrior Theseus, who leads his men into battle with the immortal Greek gods to defeat evil and the powerful elder gods of the Titans in order to save mankind.
The cast so far also includes John Hurt (Hellboy) as Zeus, Stephen Dorff (Blade) as Stavros, Isabel Lucas (Daybreakers) as Athena, Luke Evans (Clash of the Titans), Kellan Lutz (The Twilight Saga) as Poseidon, and Joseph Morgan (Alexander) as Lysander.
