Freida Pinto to Play Phaedra in War of the Gods

Freida Pinto Gets a Role of Epic Proportions

Freida Pinto might have made her mark on Hollywood playing a girl who grew up on the streets, but she's about to tackle a role that's worthy of her beauty. She's set to star in War of the Gods, based on the Greek mythology of Theseus, the founder-king of Athens.

Pinto will play Phaedra, an oracle priestess who joins eventual husband Theseus on a journey to save mankind, with the help of a few Greek gods, of course. Theseus will be played by Henry Cavill, who is pretty dreamy on The Tudors — hey, if she can't be paired up with Robert Pattinson, this isn't a bad second choice.

I agree; any kind of mythology - I'm there. Add one of the most unique, talented, and beautiful actresses of the last couple years AND one of the sexiest and most talented young actors (forget Robert Pattinson) and you've bought my ticket for opening day - I can't wait for this! Hopefully the script is good too...
