According to The Hollywood Reporter, Green is in talks right now to play Artemisia in the movie. Directed by Noam Murro, this film will follow the rise of God-King Xerses.
The sequel to 2006’s 300 will see the Persian Xerxes lead an army against Greek forces, who have little training but a very good general named Themistokles.
Green would be playing “a ruthless, gold-covered goddess who persuades Xerxes to amass his army and helps lead them into battle.”
Green is best known for her role as Vesper Lynd in the Bond flick Casino Royale. She also played a big role in The Golden Compass, and most recently finished shooting Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp and Tim Burton.
300 director Zack Snyder is attached as a producer along with Mark Canton, Gianni Nunnari, Bernie Goldman, Thomas Tull, and Deborah Snyder.
