Good news 300 fans, your favorite pierced bad guy is coming back for more. Yup, Latino Review has confirmed that Rodrigo Santoro has signed on for a sequel to the epic war movie, which will begin filming later this summer.
In case you forgot, Santoro was unrecognizable as the wicked King Xerxes. Sporting a bald head, glittery neckwear and chains running down his chest, Rodrigo had perhaps the most outrageous outfit from the movie (and a great Halloween costume to boot!).
Now it seems he’ll be coming returning in 300: Battle of Artemisia. Described as a parallel followup to the original film (versus a prequel or a sequel), Artemisia has got up-and-comers Eva Green, Sullivan Stapleton and Jamie Blackley all attached to the cast.
But we’re most excited to see Santoro back in Spartan town. No word yet on whether or not Gerard Butler will reprise his famous Leonidas role. But if they’re in need of more warriors, they can always hire the Scorpion King.
