Twilight's Kellan Lutz joins Mickey Rourke and Freida Pinto in War of the Gods
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I’m sure it’s just sheer coincidence that the announcement of Kellan Lutz (TWILIGHT) joining WAR OF THE GODS is two days after the release of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON on Blu-ray…right? Maybe not. But the actor has joined the cast that includes Freida Pinto, Henry Cavill and Mickey Rourke. The Twilight alum will be playing Poseidon in the Greek mythology movie. Tarsem Singh will be directing the film, which follows Theseus (Cavill) as he joins forces with “good” Gods to defeat “evil” Gods, led by King Hyperion (Rourke). If you remember, this is the film that Rourke chose over CONAN.
I would like to make a comment about Lutz’s acting ability, but to be honest, he hasn’t really shown me anything one way or the other. I thought everyone involved with the Twilight movies was bad, but he was barely in them. Although given the blond hair and his body type, it makes sense he’d star in something like this.
