Deadline reports that 20th Century Fox has announced a March 27th, 2013 release date for PERCY JACKSON: THE SEA OF MONSTERS, the obvious sequel to Chris Columbus' 2010 Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians had a budget of $95 million and took in over $226 million worldwide so it was no surprise the movie would get a sequel. There's no word if Columbus will return to direct.

Here's a summery of the second book:
When Thalia's tree is mysteriously poisoned, the magical borders of Camp Half-Blood begin to fail. Now Percy and his friends have just days to find the only magical item powerful enough to save the camp before monsters overrun it. The catch: they must sail into the Sea of Monsters to find it. Along the way, Percy must stage a daring rescue operation to save his old friend Grover. He also learns a terrible secret about his own family, which makes him question whether being the son of Poseidon is an honor or a curse.
