In 2006 audiences were thrilled with the unexpected mega hit 300. Now eight years later the world of Sparta marches back onto the silver screen with the highly anticipated follow up: 300 Rise of an Empire.
Telling a new story that runs in parallel with the original film, ‘Rise’ introduces the Athenian General Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) during his naval confrontation with Xerxes’ commander Artemisia (Eva Green). Adding new characters and new setting to the 300 universe this exciting entry into the franchise also brings back returning players Lena Headey as The Spartan Queen Gorgo, Rodrigo Santoro as Xerxes and David Wenham as Dilios. HeyUGuys recently caught up with Director Noam Murro and screenwriter Kurt Johnstad to discuss the challenges and hard work that went into making the epic sequel.
