Warner Bros has officially titled its follow-up to 300.

The sequel to Zack Snyder’s 2006 adaptation of the Frank Miller comic book mini-series is now 300: Rise of an Empire. The release date remains Aug 2.

The movie, which is shooting in Bulgaria, was titled 300: Battle of Artemisia when it was in its casting stage.

Noam Murro is directing Rise of an Empire, which stars Sullivan Stapleton as the Greek general Themistocles, who battles an invading army of Persians under turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro, who also played the part in the 2006 movie).
