In the sequel to Zack Snyder’s 2007 blockbuster 300, the Greeks will go up against the Persians at sea for the next installment of the series.
Based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel, 300: Rise of an Empire follows Themistocles as he attempts to avenge Leonidas and unite Greece to go up against Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and Artemisia (Eva Green, Casino Royale), the leader of the Persian Navy. The movie sees Lena Heady reprising her role as Queen Gorgo/Leonidas’ widow, and also stars David Wenham (300, The Lord of the Rings) and Hans Matheson (Sherlock Holmes).
Zack Snyder is producing the film, while Noam Murro is taking over as director for his first major effort. Check out the interactive website for the movie here.
