Back in December, we reported that Eva Green signed on to play the title character in 300: Battle of Artemisia, a spin-off of the 2007 blockbuster 300. The actress recently revealed Artemisia is based on an actual person.

"Oh yeah, I'm playing Artemisia. She really existed actually. She was commander on a boat, of a whole Armada. She's a very ballsy character, she's almost like a man, so that's fun. It's my first action film, it's going to be a challenge, [there will be] lots of training."

Rodrigo Santoro returns as Xerxes, who is persuaded by Artemisia to lead his massive army into battle against the Greeks in this new action tale directed by Noam Murro. Click Here! to watch Eva Green's video interview.

300: Rise of an Empire was released March 7th, 2014 and stars Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, Callan Mulvey, David Wenham, Rodrigo Santoro, Jack O'Connell. The film is directed by Noam Murro.

    @comicbookfan -- Good luck on that one. I'll wait until it hits DVD/Blu-ray to see it. Let me know what you think of it, regardless.
