QUANTUM OF SOLACE star Gemma Arterton is turning her back on Bond to team up with 007 villain Mads Mikkelsen - they have both signed on to star in the remake of classic film CLASH OF THE TITANS.
Arterton and Mikkelson, who have both starred opposite Daniel Craig in the Bond franchise, have joined Australian actor Sam Worthington in the new movie, a fantasy tale of Greek Gods, mystical creatures and epic battles.
Mikkelson will play Draco, a fearless warrior, while Brit Arterton will take on the part of Io, a love interest of the movie's protagonist Perseus.
The original film, released in 1981, starred Ursula Andress, Sir Laurence Olivier and Dame Maggie Smith.
But Arterton has promised the 2010 version will take the story in a completely new direction.
She says, "The script is very different.
"Obviously the story is the story, but it's much more about Perseus' mission, and how he deals with being the son of Zeus, and things like that, so it feels a little more about him, and about the issues around that."
