Joel Edgerton may star in 300 sequel

Joel Edgerton may star in 300 sequel

Joel Edgerton, newly-crowned king of the franchise – or follow-up, anyway.

Hot off the “Thing” prequel, the Aussie boy is said to be in talks to front “300: Battle of Artemisia”. Guessing director Noam Murro saw Edgerton shirtless and ribbed in “Warrior” and thought he’d make a good bronzed warrior.

Vulture reports :

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. So, if you’re keeping score at home: Battle of Artemesia will likely star an Australian as the Greek general who brought about the defeat of the Persian navy, all under the direction of an Israeli Jew working for an American producer.

“300” star Gerard Butler may or may not be returning for the film (if he does, it’ll be a cameo at best); if not, the stage is all yours Joel.
