Percy Jackson

Last Update: 28 March 2009

 

Sean has joined the cast of Fox 2000's fantasy-adventure adaptation Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief as classical Greek god Zeus.

Directed by Chris Columbus, Percy Jackson is shooting in Vancouver April 6 to July 18, 2009 for a February 12, 2010 release.

Columbus and Craig Titley have adapted the screenplay from Rick Riordan's best-selling children's novel about Poseidon's half-human son, Percy, who embarks on a quest across modern America to prevent a war among the gods.

Lightning Thief is the first of five novels about Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

The film also stars Pierce Brosnan, Uma Thurman, Kevin McKidd and Melina Kanakaredes as the classical Greek gods Chiron (Brosnan), Medusa (Thurman), Poseidon (McKidd) and Athena (Kanakaredes).

Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario and Brandon T. Jackson have been cast as the book's lead teenagers.
