Logan Lerman ‘Percy Jackson Is Dead’

"Noah" New York PremiereLogan Lerman pictured at NOAH premiere. Logan told MTV that the third Percy Jackson film is dead: ‘It’s not happening.’ The award-winning ‘Percy Jackson: The Titan’s Curse’ would have been the next book in the series coming to the big screen, following Percy and his allies’ attempts to rescue the goddess Artemis and Percy’s long-time friend Annabeth from the clutches of their kidnappers.

‘It’s been a great experience for me. It’s opened up a lot of doors for me, but I don’t think it’s happening.’ On NOAH: ‘I was interested in this movie before I even knew what it was. I heard that Darren Aronofsky was making a film, and there [were] potentially two roles that I could play, and I was like, ‘I’m in for either one of them.”

He went in to audition for the role of Shem (which went to Douglas Booth), when the director asked him to read for the part of Ham. ‘It was actually the role I wanted more. It’s the role I liked more. There’s a lot of tension between [Ham] and Noah throughout the script and I really responded to that.’

NOAH is in theaters today!

    Maybe because the first one sucked and no one really cared to see the second one. What a shame. The second one made me want a third one. This is coming from someone who red all the books.

      I hated the first one, actually liked the second one and was hoping the third one got a little more mature and less corny. I think that we are expecting too much tho… it is literally catered to 10-15 year olds. It wasnt trying to be some sort of hunger game epic that appealed to the mass audiences.

    It doesn’t help that they waited so long between the first and second one to film them. If they went in the same vein as HP and LoTR and Pirates filming back to back to back it could’ve stood a chance.

    I love Logan, but he and the rest of the main cast should NOT have been picked for the movie production. I really, really wish they stuck to the characters and plot of the books. I really would’ve loved to see the book brought to life the way it should have, and I doubt they’ll remake the series again :(

    I liked both movies, should have made better timing when it came to filming. The break in between the first & second movie was so long I was sure it wasn’t even going to be a second movie.

    They should have had a younger cast in the beginning… I was always of the opinion that Asa Butterfield would have made a pretty good Percy…. I love that kid. Then again, he is already doing some pretty amazing work now.
