‘300: Battle of Artemisia’ Brings Back Rodrigo Santoro as Xerxes

Rodrigo Santoro returns as Xerxes in 300: Battle of Artemisia Actor Rodrigo Santoro is set to return as Xerxes, his villainous character from 300, in the follow-up 300: Battle of Artemisia.

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.

300: Rise of an Empire was released March 7th, 2014.
