Quickie: 300 Prequel gets a new title


300 was a huge success, and elevated director Zack Snyder to new levels.  The film is based on the graphic novel by Frank Miller and told the story of the 300 Spartans that went up against thousands of Persian soldiers.  The sequel has been on and off for years.  It is currently, and most definitely on.  A director has been hired in Noam Murro (Smart People), while Eva Green (Casino Royale) and Rodrigo Santoro (What to Expect When You're Expecting) have been hired to star.

The movie has gone through two previous titles; Xerxes and 300: Battle of Artemsia.  Now it's 300: Rise of an Empire.  Let's just hope this thing lives up to its predecessor.
