Hollywood comes to Tenerife again for Clash of the Titans 2

Updated on February 9, 2012

Tenerife picked for a new Hollywood film

The island of Tenerife has been chosen to be the setting for much of the action for a new Hollywood film being made now. Clash of the Titans was filmed here in 2009 and now the film crews and stars will be returning to make the sequel.

This is going to mean a huge boost to the island's economy and people are very excited that Tenerife has been chosen for the privilege of being the location where a lot of Clash of the Titans 2 is going to be filmed. The title for the sequel is Wrath of the Titans.

Tenerife Film Commission

Tenerife Film Commission have persuaded the film-makers to return to Tenerife and to take advantage of the stunning landscapes and scenery on the island for the backdrops to the action in this new fantasy film.

Mt Teide, Icod de los Vinos, Garachico and Guía de Isora are said to be some of the locations that will be used, and scenes will be filmed in mountain and forest settings.

Film stars Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes will be returning to their roles in the new movie but Jonathan Liebesman is going to be the replacement for Louis Letterier as director.  Gemma Arterton was going to reprise her role too but according to reports she has decided to pull out of the film.

Work on Wrath of the Titans has already begun and the other locations where it is being made are London and Wales. Wrath of the Titans is actually going to be filmed using 3D technology and is scheduled to be on general release around spring 2012.

      The trailer for Wrath of the Titans is fake. I wait to see it at serious sites like:

      http://wrath-of-the-titans-movie-trailer.blogspot....

      On youtube before a movie come out you find only fake trailers.

      Great news at Wrath of the Titans being filmed in Tenerife again, been there only once and it was great! although Gemma Arterton looks like she's pulled out of it according to reports.

      Would like to see an official trailer when it happens on YouTube
