Second Percy Jackson Movie News

January 27, 2012

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!

If this movie sucks even more than The Lightning Thief, I am going to be PISSED.

P.S. Toby Turner should play Apollo.

Logan lerman can pull off any role

I am very interested as to how Logan’s gonna’ pull this off. In the book, the ‘big prophecy’ told of a demigod being sixteen. The way the movie is going, the demigod will have to be twenty years old.

I honestly don’t think Logan Lerman will have too much trouble, he’s a young looking guy. I mean look at other actors, Andrew Garfield who is THIRTY SOMETHING pulled off playing Peter Parker in the newest Spiderman pretty amazing. And Jake Abel (Luke) is 26 years old and has never played a character older than college age.

My main concern is that the first movie was rushed and left a lot out and changed even more. So I want to see how they are going to be true to the book (which I sincerely hope they do) but still go off what they did in the first movie.

I’m cautiously optimistic for this movie.

I can’t wait for it. I read all the books and own them so I hope the movie can live up to the books
