Sullivan Stapleton Open To A Third “300”

Sullivan Stapleton, the star of this past weekend’s hit “300: Rise of an Empire,” tells Deadline that he hopes there will be another follow-up as there’s plenty of story left to tell:

“As for the sequel, it’s a huge story, and those battles between the Greeks and Persians went on for years and years. I hope to God we do another sequel. If we don’t, hopefully they put me in another film.”

Budgeted at $110 million, “300: Rise of an Empire” took in $140 million in global box-office in its first weekend.

Stapleton, who plays General Themistocles in the film, is currently recuperating from an injury in Bangkok ahead of finishing his filming commitments on the final season of Cinemax’s “Strike Back”.
