300: Battle of Artemisia Brings Back Rodrigo Santoro as Xerxes
The move shouldn't come as too big a surprise, since the project was once titled Xerxes. We reported back in December that Eva Green will play Artemisia, a wicked goddess who persuades Xerxes to lead his enormous army into battle against the Spartans. Sullivan Stapleton and Jamie Blackley also star.
Noam Murro is directing 300: Battle of Artemisia from a screenplay by Kurt Johnstad and 300 director Zack Snyder. Production is slated to begin this summer, although a release date has not been announced.
