LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - English actress Rosamund Pike is in negotiations to take over the role of Andromeda in the "Clash of the Titans" sequel, which starts shooting next month.
Alexa Davalos played the part of the rescued princess in the first film, which grossed $492 million worldwide last year.
Jonathan Liebesman ("Battle: Los Angeles") is directing the Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures' big-budget 3D follow-up, which is set for a March 2012 release.
Sam Worthington (Perseus), Gemma Arterton (Io), Liam Neeson (Zeus) and Ralph Fiennes (Hades) are attached to reprise their roles.
Pike recently starred in "Barney's Version," "Made in Dagenham" and "An Education." She will next be seen in the comedies "The Big Year" and "Johnny English Reborn," both of which open in October.
