Since breaking out in Animal Kingdom, Joel Edgerton is quickly establishing himself as the less violent option to Russell Crowe. The star of the recent The Thing  is now in talks for another prequel. He’s up for the part of Themosticles in 300: Battle of Artemisia, the general who led the Greeks in battle against the Persians in 480 BC.

The action takes place ten years before Gerard Butler airbrushed his abs in defense of Sparta, and spans the decade long battle. Seems odd that they would cast an Australian to play Greek. This is the break-out role Zach Galifianakis has been waiting for.

Two men now stand atop the wall of corpses that has become the 300 sequel’s director shortlist. With gritted teeth and clenched abdominal muscles, they hold their weapons nearly as tight as their love for their homelands. But there can be just one.

Unknown‘s Jaume Collet-Serra and Die Hard 5‘s Noam Murro are the final two in consideration to be passed Zack Snyder‘s ceremonial directing headdress to take the helm of 300: Battle Of Artemisia (formerly known as Xerxes). Snyder, who is currently busy with Man Of Steel, will come on in a producer’s capacity and force both men to try to kick one another down a deep pit of doom. The same pit made famous by the film Meet the Spartans. (Deadline)
