There was a strange rumor that he would actually be playing Xerxes, but that isn't the case as negotiations are in effect which would bring back Rodrigo Santoro from 300 to reprise his role of hairless-god-king. In fact, 300: THE BATTLE OF ARTEMISIA was once entitled XERXES, so I'd say it's a pretty important role to get figured out.

The prequel deals with Xerxes' ascent to the place of "godhood' in which we find him at the opening of 300 within the framework of the naval battle at Artemisium and concurrent Battle of Thermopylae, both of which were masterminded by Themistocles.

And then there's Eva Green, possible co-star of 300: THE BATTLE OF ARTEMESIA, who is so sultry that it's just absurd:

Extra Tidbit: When I first saw 300, I left the theater itching to impale something. I didn't, of course, but I was just so pumped.

For Those Who Don't Know...

Sullivan Stapleton is the next big thing, I am saying it now, just watch Animal Kingdom, the dude is charismatic and powerful in every performance, Strikeback only limits the actor's potential.

I love 300, and that's why I'm stoked for this movie. That's on one end. On the other, darker side of the spectrum, I know that anything related to 300 needs Snyder for it to work, and trying too hard to inject a clever story into the film while attempting to replicate Snyder's visuals is only bound to make this movie bomb. Hard.
