Indian beauty Freida Pinto is going places. After bagging a role in Woody Allen’s film, the Slumdog Millionaire actress is set to portray a Greek priestess in War of the Gods.
The film, about the Greek mythology, will be directed by Tarsem Singh and begins production in April.
The story revolves around a young warrior Theseus who leads his men into battle with the immortal Greek gods to defeat evil and the powerful elder gods of the Titans in order to save mankind, Variety online reported.
Pinto, 25, will portray Phaedra, an oracle priestess who must join Theseus, played by Henry Cavill of The Tudors fame. Phaedra joins Theseus to prevent the cataclysmic war from erupting.
The film will be produced by Gianni Nunnari of Hollywood Gang Prods, Mark Canton of Atmosphere Entertainment and Relativity topper Ryan Kavanaugh.
