Important parts of the movie will be shot on the coastline of Bodrum and North Aegean  islands “Persian: A thousand nations of the Persian empire descend upon you.

Our arrows will blot out the sun! Stelios: Then we will fight in the shade.” Did you remember the dialogue between the Persian and Stelios? Yes, it is from the “300” (2007) movie that was directed by Zack Snyder. In “300”, King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) leads 300 Spartans into battle against Persian “god-King” Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro).

Happy news for the fans… In 2014 they will be able to watch “300: Rise of an Empire”, the follow-up. But perhaps what is also exciting for the Turkish fans of the movie is important parts of the movie will be shot on the coastline of Bodrum and North Aegean islands in May and June. When we come to casting… Rodrigo Santoro will again play Xerxes character in the movie that will be directed by Noam Murro. And Eva Green will play the Artemisia  character.
