Joel Edgerton in talks to star in 300 sequel

Warrior and Animal Kingdom star could play Themosticles in 300: Battle of Artemisia

It was announced in July that Noam Murro, who previously made Smart People in 2008, would direct the sequel to Zack Synder’s historical fantasy blood-fest 300.
Now casting rumors have begun, with Australian actor Joel Edgerton one of the first names to be mentioned.
He is already having a strong year, with Melbourne crime thriller Animal Kingdom and mixed martial arts movie Warrior, where he starred alongside Tom Hardy, both coming in for critical praise.
While it is not yet known which of the original cast may reprise their roles, speculation that Gerard Butler will appear again is mounting.
Producer Gianni Nunnari stated that, “It’s too early to say [if Butler will be cast]…but we know the answer.”
Zack Snyder and writing partner Kurt Johnstad have both worked on the screenplay.
The film is currently scheduled for a 2013 release date.
