We haven’t seen/heard a lot of news from the upcoming 300 sequel entitled, 300: Rise of an Empire. Today, we have the official logo from the film. The movie centers around Xerxes, played by Rodrigo Santoro, and will be directed by Noam Murro (Smart People).

Rodrigo has stated that the movie “takes place in the same time, you start a little earlier but then you see that it’s like a different point of view,” and will include a battle similar to the one in 300 but seen from a different perspective.

300: Rise of an Empire is set to hit theaters August 2nd 2013 and stars Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green and Sullivan Stapleton, and is loosely based on the comic ”Xeres” by Frank Miller. Stay tuned to DFAT as more 300: Rise of an Empire news comes in.
