Percy Jackson 3

Percy Jackson 3: Millions of Logan Lerman fans go into a frenzy everytime they hear ‘Percy Jackson’. The first film came out in 2010 and the second one in 2013. Both the installments did the victory march at the box office throughout due to its breathtaking plot lines. And since then fans are hoping for Percy Jackson 3. In March 2014 Logan Lerman had stated that the third instalment was still possible. “If we want to make a third one I have to do it, I’m contractually obligated to three movies. I love those movies, they’re e a lot of fun to make,” he said. Though nothing has been made official yet, there are some rumours regarding the third film that more or less seems valid. We’ve made a list of those rumours here, trying to figure out what exactly is happening.

Logan Lerman Said Percy Jackson 3 Not Happening?

Well, that’s what some people are saying. During the release of Noah, Lerman gave an interview where he said that the third film wasn’t happening. But Lerman later clarified that he only said, he didn’t know whether it’ll happen or not. “I said I don’t know, I’ve never heard anything and it’s been a while since the second one was released, so I just haven’t heard anything about a third film. Unless they call me I think it’s unlikely.” He also said he’ll be glad to go back to playing the teenage hero Percy Jackson even if he was 30, adding: “If I was 30, sure I’d play Percy again”.

A Percy Jackson TV Show?

In August 2016, Ecumenical Times published an article saying that CW was planning to adapt Percy Jackson into a TV series. In a 10-year contract deal, the network has set aside a budget of $12 million for its first season. Although this sounds pretty exciting, there’s a catch. The titular character will be played by someone else and not Logan Lerman because they want a younger actor to play the character. Though nothing officially confirmed, it’s pretty clear that if the show is really happening then it’ll begin right from the start, from book one.

In addition, there are reports that Rick Riordan, author of the books have shown a desire to pen down the script and wants the shows to remain as faithful to the books as possible. Looks like we are not getting a Percy Jackson 3 release date after all!

We really have no idea why Percy Jackson 3 isn’t happening because series is hugely popular with massive fan following. The first film movie, Percy Jackson and the Olympians made some $226,497,209 worldwide, while its sequel, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters raked in $199,850,315. After playing Percy, Logan Lerman got many significant roles in popular movies like The Three Musketeers, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Fury. “It’s been a great experience for me…it’s opened up a lot of doors for me, but I don’t think it’s happening,” he had said.

Without any official word from The CW at this point in time, though, everything is nothing more than a speculation.

Apart from Percy, speaking on the different kinds of roles that Lerman has played over the years in his career, the actor said: A lot of it is just what’s available at the time and what feels like the right next step for me in my career. When asked if he has a master plan for his career, Lerman said: Fortunately, I’m in a position where I can choose what I want to do. Most actors aren’t in that position. So I have a power that others don’t at my age, and a responsibility to respect that power, and to choose roles that I think will define me. As for now, Logan Lerman has been cast in the titular role in Shawn Christensen’s feature-length drama, Sidney Hall. He is also an executive producer for the film.
