‘300’ Casting is Headey

ON

Lena Headey has been cast as the queen opposite Gerard Butler in Zach Snyder‘s 300 for Warner Bros.

The film is based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel of the same name, and follows the real-life battle of Thermopylae, in which King Leonidas (Butler) and 300 Spartan warriors fought to the death against the massive Persian army. According to lore, their bravery led to Greece uniting and giving rise to democracy. Headey will play the role of Gorgo, Leonidas’ wife.

The film is scheduled to begin shooting on October 17 in Montreal and it will be done in the similar fashion as Sin City with the actors performing in front of a green screen, relying on all CG backgrounds.

On top of the Headey casting David Wenham, Dominic West, Vincent Regan and Rodrigo Santoro have also been assigned roles.
