Follow-Up to 300
The folks over at IGN are reporting that writer Frank Miller and director Zack Snyder have been signed to develop a follow-up to the blockbuster 300. I say go for it – yes!
Writer Frank Miller and director Zack Snyder have been signed by Warner Bros. to develop a follow-up to the CGI-heavy historical actioner 300, we’re hearing from Variety today. Word of the project first surfaced at Collider.com last week.
It’s not clear whether the film will be a prequel, spin-off or sequel, although the conclusion of the original would seemingly rule out the latter option.
Apparently, Miller is currently writing the graphic novel on which the film will be based, with Snyder waiting to see how his effort turns out before definitely committing.
A spokesman for Legendary Pictures, who will co-finance the film, said: “The vision of Frank Miller’s universe that Zack Snyder brought to the screen in 300 is unlike anything ever seen before. We want to be certain that the story originates with Frank and be as compelling as the first.”
Bizarrely, the announcement is the third greeks-set sword-and-sandals epic announced in the past few days, with Louis Leterrier’s Clash of the Titans remake and Tarsem’s The War of Gods all also rumbling into production.
