Freida Pinto to play priestess

Freida Pinto is to play an oracle priestess in War Of The Gods.
The Slumdog Millionaire star has been cast as Phaedra, who helps Theseus lead his men into battle against the ancient, immortal Greek gods, Variety reports.
Henry Cavill is playing Theseus in the film, which it is hoped will be made in 3-D.
Director Tarsem Singh is due to start shooting the movie, in which Theseus attempts to destroy evil and defeat the Titans so mankind can be saved, in April.
Since starring in Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire, Freida, 25, has made two movies, Miral with Willem Dafoe and Woody Allen's You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stanger.
Both are out later this year.
