Despite no one really caring for it all that much, Clash of the Titans's mix of Sam Worthington, CGI and an afterthought of 3-D was somehow enticing enough for it to make nearly half-a-billion dollars worldwide, so, no surprise, we're getting a second one. But who will accept the chore of making a big-budget sequel to an immediately shrugged off would-be franchise? The director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, obviously. After what the Hollywood Reporter claims were a full summer of negotiations, Jonathan Liebesman was finally offered enough money to take the job of directing the film. Godspeed.

In addition to a change of director, Warner and Legendary are promising another change in their inexplicably-successful Clash of the Titans formula this go round: real 3-D cameras, no more shoddy, murky post-production 3-D. What's the kraken release situation, though, guys?
