Freida Pinto joins 'Dawn Of War,' Mickey Rourke also considering a role

Freida Pinto is set to join Henry Cavill in Tarsem's Dawn Of War. The film is a Greek period actioner, and tells the story about Athens founder and king Theseus' battle against imprisoned titans. It's not known what role the Slumdog Millionaire actress will play in the film that the director has described as being as a combination between "Caravaggio meets Fight Club".

Also considering a role in the film is Mickey Rourke. Negotiations aren't yet final, but the actor is eyeing the role of King Hyperion. However, the actor is also currently attached to Conan, which is set to start shooting at the end of March and with Dawn Of War set to go in front of cameras on April 7th, he may have to choose one film over the other.

The majority of the film's production will take place at La Cité du Cinéma in Montreal, where the director set up offices earlier this year. There are no release dates at this time, but expect the film to hit theaters sometime next year.
