Eva Green Plays Villainess In “300” Prequel

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ 300 prequel hasn’t found its male star yet, but the movie is zeroing in on its female lead reports Heat Vision.

Eva Green (“Casino Royale,” “Camelot”) has entered negotiations to play Artemisia in “300: Battle of Artemisia”, the Noam Murro-directed prequel to the 2007 Frank Miller/Zac Snyder comic book adaptation.

Green would play a ruthless, gold-covered goddess who persuades Xerxes to amass his army and helps lead them into battle. Events in this film are said to take place concurrently with the events in “300”.

Production aims to kick off early next year. Mark Canton, Gianni Nunnari, Bernie Goldman, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Thomas Tull are producing.
