Sullivan Stapleton Hints at 300: Rise of an Empire Sequel

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ long-awaited sequel 300: Rise of an Empire debuted this past weekend and has already grossed over $140 million at the global box office, despite opening seven years since the original film’s release. Though there’s been no official word on the matter from the studio, star Sullivan Stapleton says there’s plenty of room for another sequel should they decide to move forward.

“As for the sequel, it’s a huge story,” he said in an interview with Deadline“And those battles between the Greeks and Persians went on for years and years. I hope to God we do another sequel. If we don’t, hopefully they put me in another film.”
