Joel Edgerton In Talks For Lead Role In 300: Battle Of Artemisia
Word is that the Aussie actor most recently seen in The Thing is up for the role of Themistocles in the 300 sequel. Vulture have the details..

Joel Edgerton made a big impact with his excellent performance in Warrior and after impressing with his supporting turn in The Thing prequel might be on his way to securing his first major lead role and in a CBM while he's at it. Vulture report the following..

Insiders tell Vulture that the studio is entering into talks with Aussie Joel Edgerton (Warrior, Animal Kingdom) to star in 300: Battle of Artemisia, the sequel to the studio's super-stylized 2006 hit. (Noam Murro, who last made the very anti-action flick Smart People, is set to direct; original 300 director Zack Snyder is co-writing the script based on Frank Miller's upcoming graphic-novel sequel.)


They say Edgerton would play Themistocles, the General who led the Greeks to victory against the invading Persians in 480 BCE. As they point out, the story is actually yet to be completed by Frank Miller but some plot details are known. The story is said to take place about 10 years before the original 300 and focus on Xerses and his quest for godhood after the death of his father. There have also been hints that there may be small roles for both Gerard Butler and Lena Headey who played King Leonidas and Queen Gorgo in the original.

Battle Of Artemisium Producer Says Movie Is Not A Prequel OR Sequel to 300
So what is it? While speaking to Collider about various movie projects including Immortals , Producer Mark Canton discusses the current state of Noam Murrow's follow up to Zack Snyder's 300..
In the below video interview Producer Mark Canton discusses some upcoming movies such as Immortals, Piranha 3DD and Emperor with Collider. It's all very interesting stuff but what caught my eye was his description of the currently in development follow up to Zack Snyder's 300 which he describes as neither a prequel nor a sequel. Ok, but we know that the story will focus on Rodrigo Santoro's character Xerxes who was involved in the battle of Thermopylae. So unless that character can be in two places at once the follow up must happen either before or after the events of 300, thus making it either a prequel or a sequel? I guess he must mean that it won't be a direct continuation or prologue to the story told in 300. Anyway, you can listen to what he has to say around the 10 min mark or check out the highlights below.

Canton says it's "in process". He says the screenplay by Zack Snyder and Kirk Johnson is "absolutely awesome" and they are hoping to get moving on the project with WB and Legendary soon. He then says that the movie is "not a sequel or a prequel", insisting that it is simply "another story in the 300 universe". He then says it is likely that we will see some characters from the original 300 return.

It was recently revealed that the title to this movie would most likely be 300: Battle Of Artemisium, a slight alteration from the original "Battle Of Artemisia". Here we have a synopsis..


Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) is somewhat pushed into the bloody battle with the Greeks by the gold-covered maven goddess Artemisia. Artemisia, witnessing just how much his father King Darius’s death has affected him, persuades Xerxes – with her “vindictive charm” – to go into battle against those responsible.

Artemisia tells Xerxes that he has no choice but to avenge his father’s death and has to man up before becoming king. So, he sets off to become a God because that’s the only way he can win the battle.

Artemisia, on her hunt for a group of men to join Xerxes in the battle against the Greeks, doesn’t stop at brainwashing Xerxes. She also manages to convince Themistocles (the character “Animal Kingdom” star Joel Edgerton is in talks to play) to side with her somewhat. Though the Persians took his family, and he’s spent ten years training the Greeks for battle, Artemisia has such an allure about her that the muscly Greek is taken. Ultimately, she convinces him that his life will be better off if he swaps sides. But this guy’s also as good a liar as he is a fighter.

Sounds like dogshit, hope they don't make it.

And 300 was a laughable cheesy piece of shit anyway.

New Behind The Scenes Photos And Info On 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE

There has been no official promo material released by the studio for this spin-off to the hit 2007 film, 300. Today, we get a look at some candid photos from the set of the film (in Bulgaria) courtesy the film's dietitian, Angie Kassabie, who posted these pictures on her Facebook page.

The photos feature returning series stars Lena Headey in the role of Gorgo, the queen of Sparta, making an appearance in this film without Gerard Butler, the star of 300 who refused to reprise his role. We also get a look at the leading man of the film Sullivan Stapleton (of Strike Back fame) playing Themistocles, the Athenian General who leads a sea attack on the Persian while the Spartans fight them on land. Staleton looks distinctly unSpartan, with a very soft appearance, a far cry from the hyper-chiseled leading man of the last film, Gerard Butler. The "six pack", which Stapleton claimed he acquired for this role and which was notoriously sported by the entire male cast of 300, is nowhere to be seen. The actors in the remaining two pics are unidentified.

Zack Snyder Talks 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE And Pushing It To March 2014

Talking with SuperHeroHype while promoting Man Of Steel, Zack Snyder talks about Warner Bros.' upcoming sequel 300: Rise Of An Empire, the follow-up to his hit 2007 Frank Miller adaptation. While Snyder directed the first film, he only co-wrote and produced the second. He says that Rise Of An Empire was pushed from August 2013 to March 2014 to finish up the visual effects (since "every single thing" is green screen), and he also comments on how "lucky" they were to push it to next March since the first 300 opened in that month. "Yeah, they're working right now to finish it up. With visual effects, I mean, honestly we moved our date to March because we literally had no materials ready to show because we were doing the visual effects and for how "300ey" it is--every single thing is green screen and there's just nothing… Now, a lot of movies you see early footage and a lot of the stuff there's real footage that they shot against whatever, but we just don't have any of that, so it was really lucky that we were able to move it back to March, which is the "300" date normally. I know before that, I remember everyone was going like, "Why are we opening in March? Nothing ever comes out in March." All our people were mad about that, and I didn't even know that "Dawn of the Dead" came out in March. I was just like, "I think March is okay." They were like, "No, it's a disaster. No one releases movies in March." To check out SHH's full interview with Snyder (in which he discusses Man Of Steel and his interest in continuing its universe), click the source link below.

300: Rise Of An Empire stars Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green, Lena Heady and Sullivan Stapleton. The film is set to hit theaters March 7th, 2014.
