300: Battle of Artemisia
300 producers Mark Canton and Gianni Nunnari says the project is now a “work-in-progress”. Which is a big step up from, “I had this dream last night, wait first off, No Homo.” This movie is apparently based off of Xerxes, the other Frank Miller graphic novel surrounding the 300 book.
Canton commented on the screenplay:
“We have to say that Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad, his writing partner, have killed it. They’ve done a tremendous job making a highly intelligent, epic story that will stand on its own. But it’s not a conventional sequel and, for what we do, that’s what you hope and pray for. That you can be original and authentic at the same time.”
When asked about a Gerard Butler cameo, Canton reportedly smiled and gave this cryptic hint: “It’s too early to say, but we know the answer.”
