Joel Edgerton For 300 Spin-Off?

Joel Edgerton is in talks to play the Greek General Themistocles in the forthcoming 300 spin-off Battle Of Artemisia.

Noam Murro (Smart People) will be directing for Warner Brothers in a script adapted by Zach Snyder and Kurt Johnstad from Frank Miller’s graphic novel.

Edgerton, last seen in the excellent Warrior and the superb Animal Kingdom this year will next be seen in the prequel to supernatual Arctic horror The Thing, alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

Meanwhile, he’s also working on a diverse range of projects which includes Wish You Were Here, The Odd Life Of Timothy Green and Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby.
