Kellan Lutz Joins 'War Of The Gods'

Kellan definately deserves to ve in this. 1) He's a great actor, 2) He DEFINATELY has the abs for it, and 3) He's gorgeous!
I don't really care for Mickey Rourke though.
Can't wait for this to come out! Yay! Hahaha!

He will star as Poseidon alongside Mickey Rourke and Freida Pinto.

"Twilight" actor Kellan Lutz is the newest recruit in "War of the Gods," the upcoming Greek mythology epic from director Tarsem Singh ("The Fall").

Lutz has earned the role of Poseidon, the Greek god that rules over the seas, according to Variety. He joins an impressive cast list that includes Henry Cavill ("The Tudors") as the heroic Theseus, Mickey Rourke ("Iron Man 2") as the ruthless King Hyperion and Freida Pinto ("Slumdog Millionaire") as Phaedra, an oracle priestess.

"War of the Gods" is a swords-and-sandals epic centered on mortal soldiers caught in a war between the eternal Greek gods and the evil Titans, with the fate of mankind hanging in the balance. Production is scheduled to begin in April based on a screenplay written by Jason Keller.

Lutz is no stranger to fantasy fare, thanks to his beloved "Twilight" role of Emmett Cullen, one of the many foster siblings of Robert Pattinson's character. The actor was also a reported leading contender for the title role in director Marcus Nispel's "Conan," though he ultimately lost the part to Jason Momoa ("Stargate: Atlantis"). Lutz will next be seen in the upcoming "Nightmare on Elm Street" revival.

"War of the Gods" is the latest in a string of movies dealing with Greek mythology. Director Chris Columbus' "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" debuted in February to positive reviews and solid box-office success, while Louis Leterrier's "Clash of the Titans" remake will land in both regular and 3-D theaters on April 2.
