Lutz has been cast in the role of Poseidon, Greek god of the sea, in "War of the Gods," an upcoming swords and sandals blockbuster from "The Fall" and "The Cell" director Tarsem Singh. Lutz joins Henry Cavill, Mickey Rourke and Freida Pinto in the growing cast, which is expected to assemble next month for the start of production.
The story follows young Greek warrior Theseus (Cavill) as he leads his fellow soldiers in a... well... a war of the gods, at the bidding of King Hyperion (Rourke). The Theseus of Greek myth is the founder of Athens and son of Poseidon, though it's not known how closely "War" will follow established stories. Pinto will play Phaedra, Theseus' second wife.
