[...] Rodrigo Santoro will return in the role of Xerxes in Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures' 300: Battle of Artemisia. The actor will be joining Eva Green, Sullivan Stapleton and Jamie Blackley in the film, to be directed by Noam Murro from a script by Kurt Johnstad. [...]

[15.03.2012] meldet...
In an interview with international website UOL, actor Rodrigo Santoro confirmed that he is in talks to reprise the role of 'Xerxes' in the upcoming follow-up to 300, a fictionalized account of the battle between 300 Spartans and a Persian army. "It's not a sequel, but does not come before," said Santoro. "It's a film that takes place at about the same time of the battle that goes on in the first film."
The movie was titled 300: The Battle of Artemisia/Artemisium for a while, but last we heard it is currently untitled. Eva Green (Artemisia), Sullivan Stapleton (Themistocles) and Jamie Blackley (Calisto) are the other cast members in the film, which will be directed by Noam Murro. There has also been interest in Gerard Butler and Lena Headey to reprise their roles as King Leonidas and his wife, Queen Gorgo, in cameo appearances. [...]

[18.02.2012] Deadline meldet...
Jamie Blackley has landed the co-lead in the 300 sequel [..]. In the Kurt Johnstad-scripted film, Blackley will play Calisto, a teen whose desire to become the heroic man/soldier his father was leads the 16-year-old to become a leader of a small band of soldiers. He’ll join Sullivan Stapleton, who got a lead last week [...]

Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom) could be headed to the fifth century, B.C. as Variety has word that he's being eyed to play a leading role in Noam Murro's 300: Battle of Artemisia. [...]

[17.12.2011] Heat Vision meldet...
Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ 300 prequel hasn't found its male star yet, but the movie is zeroing in on its female lead.
Eva Green has entered negotiations to play Artemisia in the movie, which is currently working with the title 300: Battle of Artemisia. Noam Murro (Smart People) is directing.
The epic follow-up to 2006's Gerard Butler action pic 300 sees the Persian king-turned-god Xerxes lead an army against Greek forces, who have little training but are under the guidance of a general named Themistokles. (The giant battle at the center of this movie is supposed to occur at the same time as the fighting in 300.)
Green would play a ruthless, gold-covered goddess who persuades Xerxes to amass his army and helps lead them into battle.
The studio is hoping to start production in the first quarter of 2012. Mark Canton, Gianni Nunnari, Bernie Goldman, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Thomas Tull are producing.
British actress Green may be best known to American audiences for playing James Bond love interest Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale or appearing in the international hit The Golden Compass. She recently wrapped shooting Dark Shadows, Warners’ big-screen take of the gothic soap opera starring Johnny Depp and directed by Tim Burton. [...]

[03.11.2011] Vulture meldet...
[...] 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.)
If a deal is reached, Edgerton - most recently seen in the prequel to John Carpenter’s The Thing, and currently engaging in old-tyme fisticuffs with Tobey Maguire in Baz Luhrmann's Great Gatsby - would play Themosticles, the famed archon and general who led the Greeks to victory against the invading Persians in 480 BCE. [...]

It's been a few months since word broke that Noam Murro (Smart People) would be helming the the 300 quasi-sequel, 300: Battle of Atemisia. Today, producers Mark Canton and Gianni Nunnari spoke about the project at the junket for their latest, Immortals.
"We have to say that Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad, his writing partner, have killed it," said Canton of the screenplay. "They've done a tremendous job making a highly intelligent, epic story that will stand on its own. But it's not a conventional sequel and, for what we do, that's what you hope and pray for. That you can be original and authentic at the same time."
There's no announced timeline for the project as of yet, but Nunnari says that it's now officially "a work in progress... as opposed to a year ago where it was just something we wanted to do."
As for the rumors of a potential Gerard Butler cameo (as Frank Miller has said that Leonidas appears in his graphic novel, Xerxes, of which the film is somewhat based), Canton played it coy.
"It's too early to say," he smiled, "but we know the answer." [...]

[15.09.2011] MTV meldet...
Fans of Zack Snyder's gritty, highly stylized slo-mo-tastic "300" have been long awaiting a sequel to the surprise 2006 hit. Thanks to recent reports from producer Bernie Goldmann, it seems that the next chapter, to be directed by Noam Murro, isn't too far off. Goldmann hinted that while the sequel will feature a whole new cast of characters, there might be room for small cameos by "300" stars Gerard Butler and Lena Headey.
When MTV News caught up with Butler during the press day for his upcoming action drama "Machine Gun Preacher," we asked him for his thoughts on the sequel and reprising the role of King Leonidas.
"You know more than I do. I'm like, 'Oh there's a director now?' I've heard that I'm in the script. I've heard things, I've seen things, I've flown off the moon," he joked throwing in a "Blade Runner" reference to throw us off track. "That was my way of avoiding [the question]," he added with a smile.
"I honestly don't know what's going on," he said. "I have to see a script and talk with them more."
Butler went on to say that he's open to the idea of appearing in the sequel, but that it has to be the perfect scenario for all parties.
"I would love to get involved again, but it has to be something special," he revealed. "Because '300' to me was such a powerful one-off experience, that there's no point in doing it again unless it's really great."

[28.06.2011] Deadline meldet...
The producers of the 300 spinoff known as Xerxes have retitled their film 300: Battle of Artemisia, and they have also narrowed their focus of potential directors to two: Noam Murro and Jaume Collet-Serra. The film, a spinoff to 300, is one that the film's original director Zack Snyder was going to direct. That was until Warner Bros and producer Chris Nolan offered him Man of Steel, and Snyder and wife and producing partner Debra Snyder put Xerxes aside and moved on to rebooting the Superman franchise because Warner Bros needed it. The Snyders have been all over this director selection process. Snyder had written a script with his 300 cohort Kurt Johnstad. Like 300, it is based on a Frank Miller graphic novel that will be shot with the kind of stylized period green-screen action visuals that became the signature of 300 and helped the film gross $456 million worldwide. Xerxes was the Persian leader seen in 300. Miller's graphic novel told the story of how Xerxes became this peculiar god-like entity. That mythology goes back to the death of his father, Darius, from injuries sustained at the Battle of Marathon in 490 B.C. Darius had told his son not to attack the Greeks because they can only be punished by a god, and so Xerxes tried to transform himself into a deity to gain revenge. The new pic's produced by the Snyders, Mark Canton, Gianni Nunnari, Thomas Tull and Bernie Goldmann. The prime mover on the film has been Legendary Pictures, which made the original with Warner Bros and has taken the lead on several big-ticket pictures since Tull recapitalized his producing/financing company. That includes the Guillermo del Toro-directed Pacific Rim with Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba and the Alex Proyas-directed Paradise Lost with Bradley Cooper.
As for those directors: Murro's sole directing credit is the Sarah Jessica Parker-starrer Smart People for Miramax, but his calling card for big-scale movie making is his commercials work on campaigns that include the Halo video game. He’s a five-time DGA-nominated commercials director, won two Golden Lions at Cannes and last year signed a deal to develop to direct the next Die Hard film at 20th Century Fox. Collett-Serra directed the sleeper hit Unknown for Warner Bros, and he's prepping to direct Red Circle for Working Title and StudioCanal. He's also developing the vampire tale Harker with Appian Way at Warner Bros. [...]

[18.02.2011] Inside Movies meldet...
Guy Ritchie will not be directing Xerxes, the sequel to the 2007 surprise blockbuster 300, a Warner Bros. spokesperson tells EW. Reports that the Sherlock Holmes director had been formally offered the job are "an erroneous rumor," according to the rep.
300 director Zack Snyder, meanwhile, is currently occupied working on the new Superman movie, which is due to start shooting this summer and hit theaters late next year, effectively preventing Snyder from taking the directing reigns of Xerxes until 2012. Whether Xerxes could hold until Snyder would be available is unclear: The project - based, like 300, on a Frank Miller graphic novel - remains in active development but has not yet been greenlit.

[16.02.2011] Vulture meldet...
[...] Warner Bros. has offered Xerxes - the sequel to Zach Snyder’s epic 300 - to none other than Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie.
Like 300 before it, Xerxes is based on one of Frank Miller’s graphic novels and had been developed by Snyder, who'd planned to direct his own script. So what gives?
One theory is that Warner Bros. needs Snyder to bear down on Superman stat: Insiders say the closely-guarded script for Superman suffers from major third-act problems, and the studio faces a ticking clock on that franchise, legally speaking; if a Superman film isn’t in production by 2013, Warner Bros. loses the rights to the entire Superman franchise and would have to re-license it from its original creators - the estates of Detective Comics writers Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster - at great if not prohibitive expense.
But there’s another theory: At a recent Warner Bros.-conducted audience research screening of Snyder’s Sucker Punch, the film tested poorly. Says one insider familiar with it, "It was bad; like, really bad. They’re [Warners brass] really not happy with it over there."
That, plus with Snyder’s last two films (Watchmen and Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole) having under-performed, some insiders posit that offering Ritchie Xerxes means that Warner’s ardor for all things Snyder may be cooling just a bit. [...]

[03.06.2009] Bei CS! gibt es erstes Artwork und Infos zu Frank Miller's Prequel-Comic "Xerxes"...
[...] "The time frame begins 10 years before 300," said Miller, "and the story starts with the Battle of Marathon, which was killer to draw, by the way, even if it was a lot of work. The lead character is Themistocles, who became warlord of Greece and built their navy. The story is very different than 300 in that it involves Xerxes' search for godhood. The existence of gods are presupposed in this story and the idea is that he's well on his way to godhood by the end of the story."
Describing Themistocles as "the complete opposite of Leonidas," Miller does promise that the 300 character will make a cameo. While that doesn't guarantee Gerard Butler cameoing in the eventual film version, it does make it likely, as does an appearance by Andrew Tiernan as Ephialtes, the deformed Spartan traitor who Miller promises also places a role in the new story.
"There's an extended scene set in Persepolis," adds Miller, "for instance, where he takes power and there are several scenes where he is going through his transitions and he's shown speaking to his mother and his wife... The new tale climaxes with a massive naval confrontation that is so dense that it is fought like a land war and it ends on the same day as the events of 300."

[26.06.2009] SHH! sprach mit Zack Snyder über das Sequel...
[...] "I know for a fact that Frank [Miller] is writing right now," says Snyder, who explains that the plan is for Miller to create the story as a comic book first, "[He's] drawing away and seems to be knee-deep in it. I think he's going to head back to Greece again and do another reconnaissance."
With the first 300 having been created on a decidedly smaller budget than Watchmen, Snyder says that he probably wants the look and feel of a sequel to maintain that of 300, even though Miller's notes promise a grander scale.
"I think we would use the same technology... I don't want it to look too Star Wars-ian... Just from what [Miller] told me, it would be bigger as far as landscape and terrain. We're going to see Athens and the Aegean and other places. There would be an opportunity for bigger visions, though I'd hope for the same aesthetic. The tech we used for '300' was not a revolution. It's basically what the weatherman has. Look, instead of Accuweather it's Sparta... It's going to be the same way, but on crazier steroids." [...]

[15.12.2008] SHH! sprach mit Frank Miller...
[...] With a lot of rumors swirling about a potential sequel or prequel to Zack Snyder's 300, which was based on a standalone graphic novel, some have wondered how involved Miller would be, and if he might write or draw another graphic novel based on the subject matter as basis for another movie. "I've written a story that's not a prequel," he told us. "It's definitely a further story in the Greco-Persian Wars, and it involves some of the same characters but I'm not sure exactly how far along it'll get and again, until it's on a marquee, I don't believe in it." [...]
"I'll publish something," he hinted with a smile, when asked whether there might be a "Sin City" or "300" comic or graphic novel out before either movie. [...]

[03.10.2008] Bei IESB gibt es Infos zur möglichen Plotline des "300"-Sequels...
[...] Snyder says he's spoken with Frank Miller who will be writing and drawing the graphic novel that the second film will be based on. Upon Miller's completion of the book, then, and only then, will they delve into writing a script for the movie.
Snyder continued and said he would not have any input into the novel and wants it to be a creation of Miller's 100%.
Snyder also said it will take place between the Battle of Thermopylae and the Battle of Plataea, the battle that narrator Dilios is at while re-telling the story of King Leonidas and the mighty Spartans to a new group of warriors at the end of 300.
As Dilios says, there's a whole year between Thermopylae and where he currently stands [...]

[01.07.2008] meldet...
Legendary Pictures has confirmed it is developing a "300" follow-up for Warner Bros. that Frank Miller is writing and Zack Snyder is intended to direct.
Miller is writing the graphic novel the project will be based upon, although at this point it's not clear whether it will be a prequel or spinoff. Most of the characters, including Gerard Butler's King Leonidas, died in the original, making a follow-up tricky.
Snyder won't officially commit until after he sees Miller's take, but he's definitely interested, and the prospect of his involvement already has fanboys in a tizzy.
Legendary, which also co-financed and produced Snyder's "Watchmen" for Warners, considers the project a major priority.
"The vision of Frank Miller's universe that Zack Snyder brought to the screen in '300' is unlike anything ever seen before," said Legendary topper Thomas Tull. "We want to be certain that the story originates with Frank and be as compelling as the first."
Another "300" has been rumored from the start, but last week Snyder and the original producing team stoked a frenzy online when they talked about it at the Saturn Awards.
It won't necessarily be easy for the team to repeat their success, however. [...]

Frank Miller, Lynn Varley

Gebundene Ausgabe
88 Seiten (Juni 2006)

"Wir marschieren." So lakonisch beginnt Frank Millers Breitwandcomic über die winzige, dreihundert Mann starke Armee des Königs Leonidas, die 480 vor Christus Griechenland gegen das riesige Heer der Perser verteidigte. Die historisch verbürgte Schlacht bei den Thermopylen verarbeitete Miller zu einer Geschichte über Tapferkeit und Treue - und natürlich über den Sieg von Intelligenz über brutale Gewalt. Epochale Schlachtengemälde wechseln sich ab mit detailgetreuen Momentaufnahmen des privaten und militärischen Alltags der Zeit. Aufgrund seiner Thematik und Erzählweise nimmt "300" einen zentralen Punkt in Millers Schaffen ein. Bereits kurz nach Erscheinen galt dieses Werk als Klassiker!
