Zack Snyder’s 300 Will Be Projected in 3D! Xerxes Looms!

Gerard Butler in 300

Over the weekend, SuperheroHype got a chance to chat with director Zack Snyder. You remember him. He made an initial splash with a remake of Dawn of the Dead and then a super duper big splash with 300, his adaptation of the Frank Miller comic books turned graphic novel. He followed that up with the less than brilliantly received adaptation of Watchmen.

300 made money and lots of it and now Warner Bros. is thinking of reopening that mine and going for some 3D gold. Snyder was shown a ten minute clip that had been converted to 3D by the studio.

I saw 300 in IMAX. I can see where they could turn the blood, guts, honor and glory film into a 3D experience. It’s got the visuals, the blood, the spears, huge army marching on valiant Spartans, etc. Guy kicked down the well in 3D. King Leo and his men in skimpy codpieces in 3D. I think the giant bellowing Xerxes could be a bit much in 3D, but there’s always a price to pay for that 3D experience.

It will attract an audience if it’s done. There’s the fans of the original film and I suspect that Gerard Butler’s naked butt in 3D will have certain factions lining up.

On a non 3D note, Snyder also talked about Miller’s 3oo sequel. The prequel will be titled Xerxes and Snyder is ready to once again put Miller’s work on film. Said Synder: “I’m pretty confident it’s going to be awesome.”

But her first love is writing fiction and film criticism which some people think are the same thing.
