Logan Lerman & Brandon T. Jackson Cast in PERCY JACKSON
Logan Lerman and Brandon T. Jackson have been cast in PERCY JACKSON, a new Chris Columbus movie based on the series of books “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” by Rick Riordan.
Percy Jackson tells the story of a boy, Percy, who discovers he is the son of a Greek God.
Logan Lerman will play Percy and Brandon T. Jackson will play his best friend Grover, as satyr.
It seems that Percy Jackson will be based on the first book of the series, “The Lighting Thief” (do I sense a change of title could eventually happen?)
The funny thing is that I am in the middle of reading these books. I finished reading “The Lighting Thief” and am now currently reading book number 2, “The Sea of Monsters.” So far I am really loving these books and it’s no surprise that they are making a movie out of them. There is a sort of Harry Potter feel to them, except that now it’s all about Greek mythology. Can’t wait to see how it all comes out on the big screen.
Percy Jackson is scheduled to be released on February 12, 2010.
