"Hotel for Dogs" Director to Helm "Percy Jackson and The Olympians" Sequel

Posted: June 17th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Hotel for Dogs" Director to Helm "Percy Jackson and The Olympians" SequelSubmit Comment
"Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightning Thief" grossed only $89 million domestically on a $95 million budget. Overseas, however, the film took in another $138 million, making it a mild success.

Back in March, we learned that 20th Century Fox is moving forward with the sequel, subtitled "The Sea of Monsters" and based on the second book in the Rick Riordan's five-book series. Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Ed Wood, Agent Cody Banks) were hired to write the script, but director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) was not expected to return.

LA Times has now learned that the studio has replaced Columbus with Thor Freudenthal, who is best known for directing "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and "Hotel for Dogs." The plan is to have the sequel in theaters by next year.

But the studio has a bigger problem than finding a director. It took a 12-year-old character and hired Logan Lerman to play him as a 17-year-old. Lerman (who will return for the sequel) is now 19, which means that by the time the fifth book goes into production, he may be in his late 20s. And Riordan wrote numerous spin-offs. So if the franchise is popular, the entire thing may become confusing.

The first film f*cking TERRIBLE!!! Worst child acting I've ever seen. Considering nobdy gives a f*ck about it here in the States, they should only release the sequel internationally and spare us Americans the theater space. Same goes for that stupid Narnia bullsh*t.

this makes no sense how they are having more of these movies when they COMPLETELY butchered the first one, and the story will make NO sense
