Frieda Pinto to Play Phaedra in War of the Gods

Frieda Pinto Gets a Role of Epic Proportions

Frieda 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. But are you feeling this latest piece of casting news?
