Percy Jackson And The Olympians: The Lightning Thief

12 Feb, 2010

In this fantasy movie directed by Chris Columbus, Bean plays Zeus, father to a teenage boy who discovers is a descendant of a Greek god, and who sets on a journey to settle an on-going battle between the gods. Co-starring Pierce Brosnan, Jake Abel, Logan Lerman and Brandon Jackson. Columbus:

For me it was just a matter of finding the gods themselves. I cast actors who had a larger than life god-like quality about them and who better to play a trainer of heroes, people like Hercules and Michael Jordan, than Pierce Brosnan? Originally I just wanted to work with Pierce again. We had a great time on Mrs. Doubtfire and it was really the case with all of these gods and goddesses. How do we find someone who you can believe as a god? Danny DeVito might have been a stretch, so we needed to find someone who really had that air about him.
