Many people would classify Eva Green as a goddess, so it's no surprise to hear that she has been cast as that very thing in prequel 300: Battle Of Artemisia.
She's in negotiations to play titular goddess Artemisia, a gold-covered baddie who convinces Persian king Xerxes to head into battle.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Green has entered negotiations for the role, and, should she sign on, she'll add an unexpected sheen of class to what was looking like an uninspired cash-in.
Noam Murro (director of dramedy Smart People) is barking down the megaphone on this one, which is expected to open at some point in 2013.
Green will next be seen in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows.
