Gemma Arterton "Clash of the Titans" update

Seems there's some minor buzz about pictures from the set of Clash of the Titans being posted to actress Gemma Arterton's website. Not much of real substance in the online articles so I'll just briefly recap what's known so far. The current U.S. release date for Clash of the Titans is listed as March 26, 2010. It's a remake/re-envisioning of the 1981 movie. Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk, Transporter 2) is the working director. Cast includes Sam Worthington as Persues, Liam Neeson as Zeus, Ralph Fiennes as Hades, and a whole lot of other people you've probably never heard of filling in various other roles. And what's Gemma Arterton's role?

This from actress Gemma Arterton's official website: "I'm playing a demi-goddess named Io. It's going to be a huge ensemble piece with loads of characters. The original was one of my favourites when I was a kid. The script is quite different from the previous film, though." (Read full comments here.)

Some pics of the actress as Io from her site:

There's also scans of a UK Empire magazine article about the movie to be found in the site's Clash of the Titans galleries. If you're looking for some real information about the movie I'd recommend the article Sam Worthington Talks Clash of the Titans, Avatar posted at Screen Rant in which the actor is quoted as saying: "We’ve done two weeks…We took on the Medusa. We’ve took on the witches. Next week we’ve got to take on the Scorpius and then we go and f*cking kill the Kraken." Classy. There's also a interesting article up at ScreenCrave, Two Join Clash of the Titans Remake, that's a bit dated but has some interesting snippets of character information.
