When Does the 300 Follow-Up Take Place?
Source:IESB.net October 2, 2008


IESB.net talked to Watchmen director Zack Snyder about the proposed follow-up to his hit graphic novel adaptation, 300.

Snyder 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.

The director added that it will take place between the Battle of Thermopylae and the Battle of Plataea, the battle that narrator Dilios (David Wenham) is at the end of 300. There's a whole year between the two battles and plenty of room for more story.

Snyder said he would definitely direct the follow-up.

Interesting. I always figured it would be a prequel, since Gerard Butler's portrayal of Leonidas is inarguably the most popular aspect of 300.

But I'll give it a chance, regardless.

Yea bad Idea in my books too why make a 300 sequel when 300 alone was a great stand alone film :monkey4
The fat cats in Hollywood just want more money :monkey4

This is a great idea. Its just continuing the real life battles, which would be fantastic to see Millerized.

I actually hated David Wenham in this movie, horrible miscast, so I will probably not like this new one.

I had a hunch the sequel would have something to do with Dilios' battle at the end of 300...

(nice to be right sometimes!)

And I'll be there for more sexy Spartan action! :drool

Then again, they're not actually saying he'll be in it.

Could very well be the Battle of Salamis, which could get really really spectacular :monkey5

Because like Frank Miller and Zack Snyder clearly enjoy being creative with the characters and the subject matter... and because the studios enjoy the $$$$$.

Uhh...there was ANOTHER battle that was VERY important, and lead to Greece being free. I'd say theres a good point.

Sounds pretty cool. 300 was good, so this should be good too.

I wonder if Dilios will get some SSC love since the rumor is that he'll headline the sequel....would be interesting to get his look from the end of the film in PF behind Leonidas

300,000, maybe. It will take place between the Battle of Thermopylae and the Battle of Plataea. The Wiki entry says that some estimates suggest Persian forces at Plataea were 300,000 strong.

From what they said I'm almost 100% sure it will be Salamis. That was the big battle that took place between Thermopylae and Plataea. And Salamis has something else that's necessary, a new notable Greek hero to replace Leonidas and to lead the cast, Themistocles.
And a notable Greek battle at sea is something we haven't seen on film before.

I'm all down for more Millerized Greek history!
