EW has confirmed that Rodrigo Santoro will be reprising his rule as villainous, golden ruler Xerxes in the 300 sequel Battle of Artemisia.
As previously reported, Eva Green will play the title role, with Aussie actor Sullivan Stapleton taking the lead, and Snow White and the Huntsman‘s relative newcomer Jamie Blackley playing a pivotal role.
Artemisia follows Blackley’s Calisto as he leads a group of soldiers to battle. Details are being closely guarded, though it’s expected to begin filming this summer. Noam Murro (Smart People) is directing, and 300 scribe Kurt Johnstad stayed on to pen the sequel.
