At a special screening of "Avatar" on Friday night in Los Angeles, actor Sam Worthington told The Envelope that Warner Bros. is so pleased with the work done on the upcoming "Clash of the Titans" that they've been granted additional money.

Said Worthington: "We're going to be going back and shooting more scenes for it, they cut loose with some money so we can add to it. We're going to be shooting more scenes in January, so we're going to be right up against it--the movie comes out in March."

Last minute re-shoots aren’t usually the best sign and could make some fans wonder exactly what’s going on with the much-hyped remake. But Worthington added this about the re-shoots: "There were some creaky parts, but they are the parts that we knew were creaky and that we knew were going to be creaky going into it. The studio is also letting us add some gods and scenes. And they're talking about making the movie a 3-D film."

The addition of more Gods isn’t much of a surprise and could actually help the film in the long run. Some of the gods like Zeus (Liam Neeson), Poseidon (Danny Huston), Apollo (Luke Evans) and Athena (Izabella Miko) may get some of their scenes extended and possibly some new ones as well. Some other notable names may be brought on for a day or two of shooting to both help sell the movie and give Mount Olympus a more populated look.

The article also describes how enthusiastic Worthington was when talking about the film, which to me is a good sign. He is very strong actor and so far has shown that he can handle being the main star of a huge franchise film.

The film is one of the biggest releases in 2010 and hopefully the re-shoots will just help make a good film even better.

“Clash of the Titans” will be released March 26, 2010.
