Rodrigo Santoro will be returning to his most famous role of Xerxes in 300: Rise Of An Empire this August, and now he’s got a new role, teaming up with Natalie Portman, Joel Edgerton and Michael Fassbender for Jane Got A Gun, according to Deadline.
Lynne Ramsey is set to direct the film, which is about a woman (Portman) whose outlaw husband returns home barely alive and riddled with bullet wounds. She is forced to reach out to an ex-lover (Fassbender) and ask if he will help defend her farm when her husband’s gang eventually tracks him down to finish the job. Edgerton is set to play the new leader of the gang.
Santoro meanwhile is up to play a character called Fitchum, although it hasn’t been revealed exactly how he fits into the plot.
The film is set to start shooting in April in New Mexico.
