lightningThe Lightning Thief, by Rick Riordan, is going to be made into a movie, due to be released Feb 2010!

So far, it’s listed as being called Percy Jackson on IMDB, but the title of the movie may change.

The cast looks terrific: Uma Thurman as Medusa, Pierce Brosnan as Chiron the centaur, Sean Bean as Zeus (remember his as Boromir in the Lord of the Rings?), and Kevin McKidd (from Rome and Grey’s Anatomy) as Poseidon.

Can’t wait to see the trailer!

Here are some blurbs about the upcoming movie:
