Splashpage has released some rather amazing news about a future 300 sequel.
Reporting that Zack Snyder heard about Frank Miller’s idea to create a film which picks up after the big battle at the Hot Gates and is intrigued with the idea. I have to say, I am too!
“There’s something that happens in history between Leonidas dying at the Hot Gates and Platea,” Snyder said. “That’s a year that’s left out of the [original] movie. A lot happened.”
Snyder’s dramatic telling of the ’300′ is about the Battle of Thermopylae, which occurred in 480 BC. However, we see at the end of the movie that one year later, at Platea, 10,000 Spartan warriors helped defeat a very large Persian force. Along with that is an equally large battle when the Athenian navy crushed the Persians in the battle of Salamis.
Snyder says that the sequel would focus on these two battles. Hey, I’m up for a lot more of the same intense battle scenes as was shown in the original 300.
There are some sequels that should have never been made. And then there are those that are much better than the originals. I have a feeling that a sequel to 300 might possibly top the original?
