Fox Shooting PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE SEA OF MONSTERS

Percy Jackson and The Olympians - The Sea of Monsters

Fox 2000 is hard at work on PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE SEA OF MONSTERS, according to Collider.

Word is that the film (a sequel to last year’s Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) could start shooting as early as next summer with Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (1408) on board to adapt the second novel in Rick Riordan’s fantasy series. However, Lightning Thief director Chris Columbus probably won’t be stepping behind the camera again, though he will reportedly remain on board as producer.

Logan Lerman is set return as Percy Jackson and it looks like the other leads will as well. In the first film Lerman was supported by Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Sean Bean, Pierce Brosnan, Steve Coogan, and Rosario Dawson.

Here is a synopsis for The Sea of Monsters:

Percy Jackson’s seventh-grade year has been surprisingly quiet. Not a single monster has set foot on his New York prep-school campus. But when an innocent game of dodgeball among Percy and his classmates turns into a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants, things get. well, ugly. And the unexpected arrival of Percy’s friend Annabeth brings more bad news: the magical borders that protect Camp Half-Blood have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and unless a cure is found, the only safe haven for demigods will be destroyed.

In this fresh, funny, and hugely anticipated follow up to The Lightning Thief, Percy and his friends must journey into the Sea of Monsters to save their beloved camp. But first, Percy will discover a stunning new secret about his family – one that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon’s son is an honor or simply a cruel joke.

    Nice! I liked the first movie and was afraid it didn’t make enough money to get a sequel.

      chrisjozo – Really? I honestly did not like the first movie at all. But I’m curious, have you read the books? I personally really loved the books, but thought it was a terrible adaptation.

      That said if there is going to be a second one, I can only cross my fingers that it will be better :)

    I hope the movie won’t upset me like the first movie :( I mean, when I saw the Lightning thief movie I was absolutely taken by it but AFTER reading the books, I was disappointed .. the movie missed out A LOT of details :( I hope I won’t be disappointed with the sea of monsters … I just hope they put the missing details there and also include Clarisse :(
