HOLLYWOOD—It was announced that Rodrigo Santoro is set to play the antagonist in the upcoming Warner Bros. film “Focus." The “300” star will appear opposite Will Smith and Margot Robbie in the con artist tale from “Crazy, Stupid, Love” writer-director team Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.

The film is set to involve a romance between a professional conman and someone just learning the criminal art and how their past relationship comes back into play when they meet years later. Santoro will play the part of the owner of a Formula One racing team who enlists Smith’s help. They find themselves part of a love triangle with Robbie.

 

Earlier versions of the cast were set to use Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, but that never went forward. Santoro starred in “The Last Stand” last year and can be seen reprising his role as Xerxes in March 2014 for “300: Rise of an Empire."
