What Comes After 300

Though 300 wasn't exactly a great movie, it was unlike anything I've seen on the big screen, which is why I'm excited to see what director Zack Snyder and the rest of the 300 gang will do next. Not surprisingly — given the movie's massive box-office success — most everyone involved in 300 has some very cool projects coming down the pike. Here's a look at what's brewing.

A 300 Sequel? Maybe

When a movie makes this much money, it doesn't take long for people to say "sequel." But director Zack Snyder says that issue should be taken up with Frank Miller, the graphic novelist behind the 300 source material. In a very geeky interview conducted in the virtual world of Second Life, Miller said he is talking to Warner Bros. about the possibility:

"I do know exactly what the sequel would be," Miller responded with a chuckle. "But I'll say to you the same thing that I've said to the people at Warner [Bros.]: That's all anybody gets without paying."

Snyder, meanwhile, is working on another project for the studio; for the details,

Snyder Eyes Watchmen

For his next film, director Snyder is tackling a beloved 1986 graphic superhero novel called Watchmen written by Alan Moore. According to a recent MTV News story:

Snyder has never met Moore, the notoriously reclusive author who has famously soured on Hollywood and said he doesn't want a Watchmen movie ever made. Still, Snyder hopes to arrange a meeting soon so he can explain that the script he's calling "closer to 'Dr. Strangelove' than 'Fantastic Four' " will embrace exactly what studios have feared in the past.

It sounds pretty awesome, so I hope that one works out.

A Sin City Sequel? Certainly

Though Miller is pretty mum about what will happen with the 300 sequel, the next installment of Sin City is a sure thing. In the Second Life interview, Miller revealed that the movie will likely begin shooting in June. "I just saw Robert Rodriguez the night before last, and we've nearly got the script," Miller said. Star Rosario Dawson will also be making an encore.

Gerard Butler's Remake

Meanwhile, star Gerard Butler, who plays King Leonidas, will likely join the cast of another cult classic: a remake of John Carpenter's Escape From New York. Butler would play Snake Plissken, the role originated by the wonderfully campy Kurt Russell.
