Actor Rodrigo Santoro Reveals Details on Noam Murro's Sequel to '300'!

Actor Rodrigo Santoro who plays Persian king Xerxes in Zack Snyder's 300 is reprising his role for the upcoming sequel 300: Rise of an Empire this time under the direction Noam Murro. Little is known about the plot for the follow-up but in an interview with CBR Santoro revealed that Snyder's influence will be felt throughout the upcoming sequel. Snyder was replaced by Murro as director for the follow-up to the Frank Miller adaptation. 300: Rise of an Empire hits theaters this coming August 2nd. Hit the jump for the details.
Rodrigo Santoro: "I would say that you get to know a little bit about [Xerxes'] backstory, which I thought is pretty cool. It's more like you have the new Athenian, Sullivan. You have Eva Green's character, which is a commander, a naval commander, my naval commander, and you have Xerxes. It gravitates between all three, what's going on."
Sullivan Stapleton portrays General Themistocles in the movie & Eva Green will play Artemisia which the movie was originally named after. So how will the sequel differ from the original?

Rodrigo Santoro: "I didn't see the movie yet, the final result, but the experience -- I mean, Zack was pretty much involved because he wrote it and he's producing it. His hands are there, but Noam will have his own take on directing it. I think it's going to be pretty awesome, and the fans are going to be pleased."
