‘Big Love’ Actor Douglas Smith Boards ‘Percy Jackson’ Sequel

Written by on February 16, 2012 

As we reported last March, and unbeknownst to me, Fox 2000 is taking the plunge with a sequel to Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. With Logan Lerman and Alexandra Daddario returning to the follow-up, subtitled The Sea of Monsters, the studio is defying not just bad box office sales, but a generally middling reaction from critics as well. And, as Variety reports, Big Love actor Douglas Smith is in final negotiations to join the project in an unspecified role.

Thor Freudenthal has taken the place of Chris Columbus as director for the sequel, which follows “the trio of friends, who go to the titular sea to find the mythical Golden Fleece and to free a friend who has been captured there.” Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, known for their work on Ed Wood and Agent Cody Banks, are also returning to pen the sequel.

Chris Columbus, Karen Rosenfelt and Michael Barnathan are producing the project, which has a March 26, 2013 release date planned. Besides his role on the HBO show Big Love, Smith has two other features lined up: The Boy Who Smells Like Fish and Antiviral, which is the first feature length film directed by David Cronenberg‘s son, Brandon.

Do you believe that Smith will be a good addition to The Sea of Monsters?
