Edited: The Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters release date has been delayed to August 2013!
We’re starting to see just a little bit more news about the Percy Jackson movie sequel, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters. If you recall, the second book was about the quest for the legendary Golden Fleece. The movie is slated to start some filming in Vancouver, British Columbia, this year with a release of March 26, 2013. According to IMDB, the following roles have been cast:
- Logan Lerman as Percy Jackson
- Alexandra Daddario as Annabeth Chase
- Jake Abel as Luke
- Brandon T. Jackson as Grover Underwood
A couple of interesting things:
- The first Percy Jackson movie was released in 2010. These days, 3 years is a long time for a sequel to what is essentially a kids’ movie.
- How is Logan Lerman (who is already 20) going to continue to pull off such a young role? The first movie was already changed from the book to make Percy older. Now he is going to be significantly older than both the book and the first movie.
We’ll post more information as we find it!
