happens over time in many different locations. The opportunities for the six distinct battles are even greater with different locations and tactics.’The plot will center on a battle against the main antagonist of Rise of an Empire, Artemesia (Eva Green),
the vengeful commander of the Persian navy, who is second in command to the mortal-turned-god leader Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and has the added incentive of seeking to settle a blood score against the Greeks who killed her family when she was a child.Stapleton and Murro talked about her character:
‘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.’ Murro adds ‘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.’Penned by Snyder and Kurt Johnstad, 300: Rise Of An Empire also stars Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, Igal Naor, Callan Mulvey, Jack O’Connell and Andrew Tiernan.
