Production on 300: Rise of an Empire has officially kicked off in Bulgaria under the direction of Noam Murro. To promote the event, Warner Bros. released this group photo showing some of the cast and crew assembled on the green-screen stage of the movie.

We've also been given a symopsis of the film's storyline:

"300: Rise of an Empire shows how the villainous Xerxes was transformed into an avenging deity. After Xerxes' father, Darius, is killed by the Greeks during the Battle of Marathon, he seeks to become a God and eventually comes face to face with Athenian commander Themistocles."

300: Rise of an Empire is scheduled for release on August 2, 2013.

August 2, 2013 is the targeted release date for the 300 sequel. Production must be inching closer to a start of filming as it's been now confirmed that Rodrigo Santoro will reprise his role as King Xerxes in the second movie. Santoro played the jewelry-encrusted ruler in the first 300 film.

The role of Xerxes, the self-proclaimed god leader of the Persian Empire, has been recast for the 300 prequel/sequel. Instead of Rodrigo Santoro coming back to play the part, in the new film the character will be played by Sullivan Stapleton.

To better market the Xerxes prequel movie to fans of 300, Warner Bros. is retitling the project 300: Battle of Artemisia. They've also got two possible candidates to direct the film: Noam Murro (best known for his commercial works, such as the ads for Halo: Reach) and Jaume Collet-Serra, director of Orphan and Unknown.

Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie has been offered the job to direct Xerxes for Warner Bros. 300 director Zack Snyder is going to be too busy directing the new Superman movie to give the time and energy to make that 300 sequel, which means that the studio wants someone that they feel comfortable passing the challenge on to. Ritchie is apparently that man for WB. [Full story]

"It’s the battle of Marathon through my lens," 300 creator told The Los Angeles Times about his sequel/prequel. "I’ve finished the plot and I’m getting started on the artwork." The project has been dubbed Xerxes by the comic book creator and the action takes place about a decade before the events of 300, making it a prequel. And, according to Miller, 300 director Zack Snyder has told him that he's interested in developing this new Spartan story as a movie, too.

Finally we have solid confirmation that there is a concrete desire from the creators of both the 300 comic book as well as the hit movie to make a sequel, as well as information on what kind of story we'll see. While attending a special presentation of Watchmen footage to the online press, IESB.net asked 300 director Zack Snyder what, if any, ideas he had heard for the sequel or prequel to his film. Not only did IESB get what they asked for, they got it and more.

Snyder revealed that he had been in direct contact with 300 creator Frank Miller about what the artist/writer envisions for a sequel. Miller will write and draw the sequel to 300 in graphic novel format first before Snyder would consider turning it into a movie; that said, the filmmaker definately wants to be the one that makes the eventual sequel movie one day. As for the continuation's storyline, it would pick up after the conclusion of the Battle of Thermopylae and the start of the Battle of Plataea, the battle seen at the conclusion of the 300 movie where the lone survivor of Leonidas' men, Dilios, recounts the story of his king's final stand against the Persian armada. A year separates the two battles and that gulf of time will be where at least some of the 300 sequel's story will take place.

If he knew, Snyder didn't say how far Miller had gotten with the development of his new story or if the comic book legend had started writing/drawing it.
