Sullivan Stapleton to lead 300 prequel

Animal Kingdom‘s Sullivan Stapleton is set to star in Warner Bros’ 300: The Battle of Artemisia.

The news was broken by Variety, though it was Deadline who confirmed the actor would be taking on the role of Themistocles.

Funnily enough, Stapleton will take the part that his AK co-star Joel Edgerton previously passed on.

Eva Green will play Artemisia, and Rodrigo Santoro is in talks to reprise the role of Xerxes from Zack Snyder‘s original 300.

Noam Murro will direct the pic, which is based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel Xerxes.

Discuss: Glad to see Stapleton nab the lead?
