Gemma Arterton Set for Clash of the Titans

Empire magazine reports that Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace, upcoming Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) will star opposite Sam Worthington in the Louis Leterrier-directed Clash of the Titans.

Arterton will play the demi-goddess Io. “My part is… the coolest part,” she said. “Io’s not in the original film. Perseus falls in love with her and then [CENSORED FOR TINY SPOILER]. It’s a really great part.”

Arterton adds that compared to the 1981 original Harry Hamlin film, this one is “much more about Perseus’ mission, and how he deals with being the son of Zeus.”

Warner Bros. Pictures is eyeing a March 26, 2010 release for Clash of the Titans.
