The "War of the Gods" cast is turning out to be quite literally made of gods. As in very, very attractive people. First there was "Tudors" star Henry Cavill as the young warrior Theseus, who leads his men into battle against evil. Then came the announcement that the stunning star of "Slumdog Millionaire" Frieda Pinto would play Phaedra, an oracle priestess who joins Theseus on his journey.
Finally, last night it was announced that "Twilight" vamp and Calvin Klein model Kellan Lutz was added to the epic project. This movie is starting to sound like the big screen equivalent of an Abercrombie catalog — made entirely of ridiculously good looking people!
In the Greek mythology flick, Kellan — who will next be seen in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" revival and then, of course, "Eclipse" — will take on the role of Poseidon, the Greek god that rules over the seas.
The Tarsem Singh-directed drama is scheduled to begin production next month.
What do you think of Kellan playing a Greek god? More specifically: what do you think of Kellan playing a badass in control of the deep blue sea?
