'Percy Jackson & The Sea of Monsters' Gets A Director!

As you could tell, Percy Jackson is a fave of JustJaredJr.com so we could not be more excited to hear this news — The Sea of Monsters just booked a director!

The L.A. Times reports that Thor Freudenthal, who directed Diary of a Wimpy Kid, will be the director for the second film in the franchise. Chris Columbus, who helmed the first film, will only be producing this time around.

And bonus, Logan Lerman is definitely, absolutely coming back as the title character.

“Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Sea of Monsters” by Rick Riordan follows Percy as he and Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario) head to the titular sea to find the mythical Golden Fleece, as well as to free Grover (Brandon T. Jackson) who has been captured there.

The film could be in theaters sometime in 2012. Anyone else as excited as we are?

    Great News!..I was really hoping it would be done a little sooner but as long as the original principal cast returns,this will give me something to look forward to when Harry Potter finishe’s in July.

    I am not excited! They did a horrible job on the first movie. They added unnecessary scenes and they left out a ton of things! So I doubt this movie will be any better. sorry for all you out there who enjoyed the first movie but I did not!

  • ploi

    phew, it was about time! i kinda liked the first one, but i really hope it sticks true to the book. the way the first book sets up the story, theres no room for sequels. luke is presumed dead, kronos doesn’t exist, neither does clarisse and no gods has any speaking roles. still excited to see it though.

  • Anisha

    YESSSSSSSS<333333 I LOVE LOGAN LERMAN AND THIS MOVIE IS GONNA BE AMAZING!!!!!!!!! :)

  • kaye

    I’m excited! But I wish they’d stick to the book this time because the first movie was really far from the book.

  • Thechosenone

    OMG!! been waiting for this ever since the lightning thief came out!! I’ve read all the books and it was so AWESOME!!! GO LOGAN!!! I LOVE YOU!! XD

  • Thechosenone

    @lyn: yeah me too!! xDD the fishponies!! xDDD

  • Bianca

    Yessssssss! I can’t wait.
    However, I DO Chris doesn’t butcher the story line this time.
    Seeing how he’s the director of HP and all, I don’t even know why he ruined the story in the first movie. :(

  • Ema
