Filming for the second Percy Jackson movie, Sea of Monsters, based on Rick Riordan’s middle grade novel (Hyperion), will begin next week in Vancouver, Canada. It’s scheduled for release March 27, 2013.
Hunger Games actress, Leven Rambin, has just been tapped for the role of Clarisse, the daughter of Ares. Logan Lerman will return as Percy, Brandon Jackson as Grover, and Alexandra Daddario as Annabeth. The director has changed, however. Thor Freudenthal (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Hotel for Dogs) is in that role this time, replacing Chris Columbus, who is one of the producers.
A graphic novel version is coming in January.
