While the project still needs a strong leading man for the frontlines of 300: Battle of Artemisia, the prequel to Zack Snyder's 2006 graphic novel adaptation, a female lead has been found for the titular goddess. Heat Vision has word that the lovely Eva Green (Perfect Sense, Casino Royale), is in talks to play Artemisia, a ruthless, golden goddess who persuades Xerxes to amass his army and helps lead them into battle. The story itself follows Xerxes as he leads his army against Greek forces, who have little training but are under the guidance of a general named Themistocles, a role that might go to Joel Edgerton. Read on! Our hero of the story is meant to be the elected archon and general who led the Greeks to victory against the invading Persians in 480 Bce, including effective command of the Greek allied navy at the battles of Artemisium and Salamis. »
