Rosamund Pike‘s very first film performance was as Miranda Frost in Die Another Day, and she’s been steadily showcasing her talents for the past decade. Now, she’ll get a chance to wrap that talent in a toga for Wrath of the Titans.
According to Deadline Des Moines she’ll be playing Andromeda, the character played by Alexa Davalos in Clash. It’s unclear why Davalos won’t be reprising the role.
It looks like Pike is ready to return to tentpole acting, because it was either going to be this or a role in Man of Steel. It’ll be interesting if the production can get an actual performance out of her or the stable of talented actors that are returning considering the lifelessness of Clash. Fortunately, if the sequel is stale, we all have Pike’s performance in An Education to wash down the sour taste.
