No, a director from Israel is doing it. He has done mostly commercial work and the most notable film on his resume is Smart People.

Ok, I thought he was cause it said Frank Miller Project. So how is Xerses a god now? Or he is just using the title he called himself in 300, divine king?

There's conflicting stories about the actual plot of the film. Either it's a prequel or it's a story that place nearly at the same time as 300.

I'm checking the IMDB credits... looks like they're going to shoot in Bulgaria. They have stunt doubles and crew based in Bulgaria (specifically those from Conan and Expendables 2).

Yep, they've started shooting the film last week at Nu Boyana in Bulgaria. Eva Green will arrive in the next few days to shoot her scenes.

Most likely because it's all going to be shot on green screen and not outdoors.

300: Rise of an Empire returns August 2nd

Quote:


Sullivan Stapleton stars as Themistokles in the upcoming film '300: Rise Of An Empire.'(Photo: Warner Bros. Pictures)
Sparta's warriors may have waged fierce land battles in the 2006 box-office hit 300, but they hadn't even gotten their feet wet yet.
In the parallel film 300: Rise of an Empire (out Aug. 2), which takes place at about the same time as its predecessor, Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) and his common-man troops fight the rest of the Persian army at sea.



The aquatic setting allows for a completely new dynamic even if both films take their stylized look from the original graphic novel by Frank Miller.
Empire "is tied visually to the original,'' says director Noam Murro, but with so much happening within small boats, "there is a whole different choreography of fighting and war.''


The sea battle also allows the scale of the movie to change. The first 300 took place primarily on a narrow pass known as the "Hot Gates," where the Spartans sought tactical advantage due to their significantly smaller numbers. But Empire "happens over time in many different locations," says Murro. "The opportunities for the six distinct battles are even greater with different locations and tactics.''


"The few against the many is still here," says Murro. "It's hundreds vs. hundreds of thousands. It's about taking on the mightiest power of all with wisdom and tactics."


In this case, the mightiest power is primarily led by Artemesia (Eva Green), the vengeful commander of the Persian navy, who is second in command to the mortal-turned-god leader Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro). She has the added incentive of seeking to settle a blood score against the Greeks who killed her family when she was a child.


"She does most of Xerxes' dirty work in this film.She's seeking revenge, and she does it well," says Stapleton. "She's a force to be reckoned with."
Amen, says Murro: "She's got sex appeal, she's ruthless and conniving. All the things that kill men. And she has a sword. I wouldn't mess with her."
Zack Snyder, who directed the 2006 film, co-wrote the screenplay for Rise of an Empire and incorporated thematic differences on everything from the hero-general to the people he leads. Themistokles is a more complicated leader than the original's Spartan King Leonidas (Gerard Butler).
"Themistokles is battle-scarred and a warrior, but at the same time he's a politician," says Murro. "He's not the king. He has to rule in a democracy. It's a different complexity of character."


His fighting men drawn from humble citizenry are not the born-and-bred fighters that the Spartans are either.
"These people don't want to fight, they even say that they are not Spartans," says Murro. "They are common people who have to do this to not be in under the rule of a dictator. This is not a duplicate movie or a cookie-cutter. It's a very different story to tell in keeping with the original flavor of 300."

Interesting.


Also shouldn't the thread title change to 300: Rise Of An Empire?

So, does Miller still have another graphic novel coming out in the 300-verse?

With cheaper tech you get a cheaper look, I suppose.

The film's poster reveals that Lena Headey will reprise her role as Queen Gorgo in 300: Rise of an Empire. Oh, and someone named Fredricko Justo will score this film, rather than Tyler Bates (thank God).

Sequel would have made more sense maybe 2 or 3 years after the 1st 300. I don't think the 1st film was solid enough that it needed a sequel some 6 years after.

Although they could have just waited another 2 years and rebooted the 1st film since that's the rage now.

I know wikipedia isn't the most reliable source but it's got the running time at a 147 minutes.
