Percy Jackson: Logan Lerman open to return as a new character in the Disney+ series

Nearly a month since best-selling author Rick Riordan confirmed that his Percy Jackson novels are now officially being adapted into a Disney+ series, fans are still reeling with joy as they’ve been waiting for a long time for the project to be made and have already started dropping names of the potential cast, who they think are perfect for their favorite Demigods. Interestingly, despite the live-action films being negatively-received by Riordan and the fandom, fans are still showing their support to its lead star Logan Lerman by campaigning for him to get cast as Poseidon in the long-awaited series adaptation.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lerman has finally commented on the recent Percy Jackson series announcement, revealing that he is flattered that fans are still remembering his time as the titular demigod.

“Honestly, I’m amazed by it and I’m flattered that people still talk about the Percy Jackson series,” Lerman said. “Yeah, I saw that. Of course, I read the stuff. I’m stuck at home with my phone, so, of course I read it.”

When asked about the possibility of playing Poseidon, he admitted that he is still interested to revisit the franchise and is open to playing a new role that would fit him. “Yeah, potentially, it just depends. It’s early right now you know. It usually starts with an announcement like this for a big project. So, they announced the development of this show. I wonder when they will be ready to make it. They’ve got to approve scripts, budget it, and cast it. Do this whole thing. So, it could be a ways away for them, you know. I’m curious if there would be a role that would be interesting for me or something like that. I’d definitely consider it.”

The Percy Jackson novel franchise began in 2005 with The Lightning Thief, which proved to be a smash hit and spawned four sequels, The Sea of Monsters, The Titan’s Curse, The Battle of the Labyrinth and The Last Olympian, with five supplement books and graphic novel versions of each being released shortly after.

The first novel was adapted for the big screen in 2010 with Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) helming and Logan Lerman (Hunters) starring in the titular role. Though receiving generally mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike, with criticism aimed at the film’s unfaithfulness to its source material, it was a box office hit, grossing over $226 million on its $95 million budget, which led 20th Century Fox to order a sequel.

This came in 2013 with the adaptation of The Sea of Monsters, featuring the return of Lerman along with co-stars Alexandra Daddario (We Summon the Darkness) and Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder). Much like its predecessor, it received more mixed reviews from critics and audiences, with more criticism aimed at its unfaithfulness and melding of stories from the second and fifth novels, and was a box office hit, grossing $200 million on its $90 million budget. A third film in the series based on The Titan’s Curse was in development, but after languishing in development hell it appears to have been shut down.
