"Xerxes" Prequel Retitled!

on Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Warner have announced that they have changed the title of "Xerves" to "300: Battle Of Artemisia". The film is confirmed to be a prequel to the Zach Snyder's 2006 film, "300" and will be set about 10 years before the events of the first film.
Warner have also confirmed that Zach Snyder will deffo not be directing the upcoming prequel, as he's busy with their new 2012 "Superman" film. They have narrowed possible director down to two, Noam Murro and Jaume Collet-Serra. Murro was the guy behind the live-action trailers for the "Halo" franchise. He's also up for the role of director for "Die Hard 5". Collet-Serra directed "Orphan" and is currently helming a new "Dracula" film, "Harker".
Gerard Butler is being offered his role again from the first film, Leonidas. It's yet unknown if he'll return or not, but I'm sure he will..........hopefully.
