Vulture reports that the first offer is for the lead in 300: Battle of Artemisia, the sequel to the 2007 smash hit, where he would play Themosticles, the general who leads Greece to war against the Persian army. The sequel, formerly known as Xerxes, will be directed by Smart People director Noam Murro and is penned by Zack Snyder,
The second offer relates to Steven Soderbergh's The Man from U.N.C.L.E, to play the part of Illya Kuryakin, a Russian spy (originally played by David McCallum) who works with American agent Napoleon Solo (originally played by Robert Vaughn). Bradley Cooper is in talks to play the part of Solo but, according to Vulture, the decision is dependent on his approval of who they cast as Illya. Considering this man agreed to star in All About Steve, I cannot imagine he will turn his nose up to an actor of Edgerton's caliber.
Someone out there is intent on making Joel Edgerton a star and he certainly deserves it.
