Back in June we confirmed
that Warner Brothers was looking to develop a sequel to 300
. IESB.net talked to Watchmen
director Zack Snyder
at a recent event showcasing footage from “Watchmen” about the proposed follow-up to his hit graphic novel adaptation.
Snyder confirmed that the flick will in fact be both a sequel and a prequel.
DIrector told the site he has spoken with the graphic novel’s creator, Frank Miller
, who will be writing and drawing the graphic novel that the second film will be based on. Work on the script for the movie won’t start until after completion of the book, as Snyder doesn’t want to have any input into the novel and wants it to be Miller’s creation.
Snyder also said it will take place between the Battle of Thermopylae
and the Battle of Plataea
, the battle that narrator Dilios
is at while re-telling the story of King Leonidas
and the mighty Spartans to a new group of warriors at the end of 300. There is a whole year between the battles to explore. And that is where we will find this film.
