Percy Jackson star Logan Lerman is all set to leave Vancouver International Airport with his mom, pup and two guitars to another filming location on Wednesday afternoon (July 29).
The 17-year-old newcomer plays the title character in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. The flick, hailed as the next big thing to Harry Potter, is about a young boy who discovers he’s the descendant of a Greek god and sets out on an adventure to settle an on-going battle between the gods.
Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, also starring Kyle XY’s Chelan Simmons, Rosario Dawson and Pierce Brosnan, is set to hit theaters early 2010.
Logan Lerman lets his fingers roll over the ivory keys of a piano in this new pic from costar Milla Jovovich during a cast dinner earlier this week in Germany.
The 18-year-old will star as D’Artagnan, who joins forces with three veteran musketeers — Athos (Matthew Macfadyen), Porthos (Ray Stevenson) and Aramis (Luke Evans) — to battle the evil Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz).
Milla stars as M’lady De Winter. She tweeted of Logan, “Logan n I r having an awesome cast dinner w everyone. He’s SO talented!”
Hero Worship: His mad skills as the lead of Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief so impressed director Paul W. S. Anderson that Logan was cast sans audition as swordsman D'Artagnan in The Three Musketeers 3-D reboot. He insists it's a stretch: "I'm used to playing more of the nerd."
On the Perks of Being a Wallflower: He'll soon play a loner opposite Emma Watson in her first big-screen appearance since Harry Potter.
Movies 101: Logan hopes to direct and score his own films one day, but for now he's putting college on hold. "Being on set is the best film school there is." —ALISON S. COHN
