Bill Nighy Talks Wrath of the Titans and Total Recall
Actor Bill Nighy, who has couple of big movies coming out in 2012, talks about his role in Jonathan Liebesman-directed sequel Wrath of the Titans, as well as playing 'Kuato' in science-fiction adaptation Total Recall. Check it out...
Bill Nighy, actor who portrayed 'Davy Jones' in Pirates of the Caribbean movies and 'Viktor' in the Underworld film series, talked to Collider about his upcoming films such as the Jonathan Liebesman-directed sequel Wrath of the Titans and Len Wiseman's Total Recall.
In the sequel to Clash of the Titans, Nighy plays Hephaestus, an armorer to the Gods:
"In Clash of the Titans 2, I play Hephaestus, who is armorer to the Gods. I make all the weapons, I live in a cave, and I fell from Mt. Olympus. Itís not in the movie, but in the myth, Zeus, who was his father, threw him out of Mt. Olympus because he was lame, and he fell for seven days, which didnít improve his limp. Itís a very nice character and we had a very good time. We were above the cloud on a volcano, looking down on a carpet of white cloud in Spain, on a very beautiful landscape, which quite easily resembles the ancient world. It was quite an experience."
He was also cast as 'Kuato' in Len Wiseman's upcoming science-fiction film Total Recall, also starring Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston and Kate Beckinsale:
"The original is treasured by people, I know, but I think I can help them relax. I think itís in very, very good hands. The script is fabulous. I like sci-fi. Iím not keen on monsters from outer space, or that kind of thing, too much, although Iíll go with it, in certain cases. But, I love imaginative representations of a possible near-future, where you look at the technology and you think, ďWell, yeah, that could really nearly be true.Ē I like those kinds of backgrounds. And, itís a cracking script. Colin [Farrell], Jessica [Biel], Bryan Cranston and Kate Beckinsale are a pretty hot cast. I look forward to seeing that, even though Iím in it. I hate seeing films Iím in, but I think Iím going to have to watch it because I want to see it so bad."
Wrath of the Titans is set to his theatres on March 30, 2012, while Total Recall is set for August 3, 2012 release.
