XERXES Renamed; Two Directors Now In Contention


     The 300 spinoff known until recently as XERXES has been renamed 300: BATTLE OF ARTEMISIA, Deadline reports.

     The producers of the film have also narrowed down the pool of directors to two names: Noam Murro (SMART PEOPLE) and Jaume Collett-Serra (UNKNOWN).

     Although 300 director Zack Snyder will not helm this feature, as producers, he and his wife and producing partner Debra Snyder have been actively involved in the director selection process. Snyder had also written a script with his 300 partner Kurt Johnstad.

      Producing the film, in concert with the Snyders, are Mark Canton, Bernie Goldmann, Gianni Nunnari, and Thomas Tull.
