Producers Mark Canton and Gianni Nunnari (300) will produce War of the Gods, and have attached Tarsem Singh, much known as a music-video and commercial director, to direct. Charley and Vlas Parlapanides, the brothers who penned the script for Universal's 50 Cent vehicle Live Bet, penned the War of the Gods spec.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the script concerns the battles waged by Theseus, a warrior from Greek mythology. That moves it into a somewhat different historical time than 300 -- which concerned the battles of King Leonidas against the Persians -- but ensures a similar vibe and young-male demo.
Production on War of the Gods could start as soon as early 2009.
