March 13th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Even though it’s been seven years since the original film, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ long-awaited sequel 300: Rise of an Empire had an opening week global gross of $136 million and has put Sullivan Stapleton in the spotlight.

Sullivan who’s also been in Animal Kingdom and Strike Back, told Deadline that there’s plenty of room for another sequel should they decide to make one:

“As for the sequel, it’s a huge story. 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.”

Though there’s been no word of one, would you like to see in a third 300 film?

Sullivan has also been rumored  to have auditioned for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII at one time.

300: Rise of an Empire also stars Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, Rodrigo Santoro, Igal Naor, Callan Mulvey, Jack O’Connell and Andrew Tiernan, the Noam Murro directed film is currently playing worldwide in 2D, 3D, and IMAX theaters.
