PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS, also called Percy Jackson & the Olympians: Sea of Monsters, is an upcoming fantasy film and the sequel to the 2010 film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. It continues the adventures of Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) and his friends, as they look for the golden fleece, in order to save Camp Half-Blood’s magical borders from sinister foes.
New characters come along on the adventure, including Clarisse La Rue (daughter of war god Ares, played by Leven Rambin), and Tyson the Cyclops (Douglas Smith), who, to Jackson’s dismay, is revealed to be his half-brother. Turns out Tyson was also fathered by Poseidon, this time with a sea nymph mother. Also, two of those gods make their series debut in the film: the messenger god Hermes (Nathan Fillion) and Dionysus, the god of wine (Stanley Tucci).
Based on the popular series of Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan, the film is directed by Thor Freudenthal (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Hotel for Dogs) with a script by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski.
