Movie: The Lightning Thief

Rockstar Rick Riordan must be giddy!

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Pierce Brosnan, Uma Thurman, Sean Bean, Kevin McKidd and Melina Kanakaredes are heading to Mount Olympus.

The quintet has been cast in Fox 2000's fantasy-adventure adaptation "Percy Jackson" as classical Greek gods Chiron (Brosnan), Medusa (Thurman), Zeus (Bean), Poseidon (McKidd) and Athena (Kanakaredes). Aries, Hades and Persephone have not yet been cast.

Except the kids who have been cast are mostly all wrong. The actress playing Annabeth is TWENTY-TWO.

I really, really, really have my hopes up with this one. I truly hope they don't let me down!

Great casting! Thanks also for the Jimmy Fallon/Susan Boyle video--still laughing!
