FILM NEWS: Bardem & Franco up for "Clash of the Titans 2," Tatum offered "21 Jump Street," and more

• How do you make the Clash of the Titans sequel awesome? You add Javier Bardem and James Franco. Bardem is being sought after to play the God of War Ares and Franco is up for Agenor, the son of Poseidon.

Channing Tatum is at the top of the list to star alongside Jonah Hill in the "21 Jump Street" film adaptation. 

• Looks like Ed Westwick ("Gossip Girl") might be getting some legit work. He's been cast in the indie adaptation of Sebastien Japrisot's novel Trap for Cinderella. It's about "a rich woman and a poor woman trapped together inside a beach house in a French resort gutted by fire. Only one of them survives, burnt beyond recognition and with total amnesia, resulting in all sorts of questions about her identity." It's like the Prince and the Pauper…if it were a horror movie. Can you imagine? If it's the poor girl, she's rich, but disfigured, and if it's the rich girl, she could end up poor and disfigured. Brooke Shields, Bill Nighy, Imogen Poots (28 Days Later), and Tamsin Egerton (St. Trinian's) will also star.

• There are plans to adapt Rebecca Serle's novel Rosaline, which will tell the story of Romeo and Juliet from the perspective of the girl he ditched.
