Animal Kingdom Star Sullivan Stapleton To Star
Quote:
"Animal Kingdom" thesp Sullivan Stapleton is in final negotiations to star in the untitled "300" follow-up from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures.

Noam Murro is helming, with Kurt Johnstad and Zack Snyder penning the script with plot details being kept under wraps.

Mark Canton, Gianni Nunnari, Bernie Goldman, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Thomas Tull are producing.

Stapleton had been in consideration for the role early on in the process but it was believed he couldn't do it because of his obligation to his TV show "Strike Back." With the shoot pushing to the summer, the studio went back to Stapleton and it looks like their schedules will work out.

The ironic part is that Joel Edgerton, his "Animal Kingdom" co-star, was a front-runner for the role at one point but passed to do the untitled Kill Bin Laden film that Kathryn Bigelow is helming.
