Screenwriter Marc Guggenheim talks with Spinoff Online about Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, saying the second film in the series works to tell a standalone adventure that defies Harry Potter comparisons.

Fox has released a new trailer for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters that features plenty of action and Logan Lerman and, delightfully, a healthy dose of Nathan Fillion.
Nathan Fillion will join Logan Lerman in Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, slipping into the winged sandals of the Greek god Hermes in the sequel to 2010’s Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid director Thor Freudenthal will direct Fox’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters, with star Logan Lerman (naturally) returning in the lead role.
