Golden Globe winning actor Mickey Rourke will suit up for battle in 'War of the Gods.'
Hollywood's resident bad-boy is set to play the villain, King Hyperion, according to Variety. He will join 'Slumdog Millionaire' breakout star Freida Pinto in the film.
Pinto will star as Phaedra, an oracle priestess. Her character must join Theseus, played by "The Tudors"' Henry Cavill, to avoid the outbreak of catastrophic war. Theseus and his fellow warriors seek to save mankind by entering into battle with the powerful elder gods of the Titans. His force also struggles to defeat evil by fighting the immortal Greek gods.
Variety reports that the cast will hit the battle field in April, when filming begins.
