Zack Snyder has plans to expand the mythology of 300 beyond ancient Greece

March 21st, 2016 by Matt Gault Comments


Zack Snyder plans to keep himself busy after spearheading DC’s slate of films by directing Batman v Superman and both Justice League movies. The director has previously spoken about making a George Washington movie “in the style of 300.”

Now, according to Collider (via Squareeyed), Snyder wants to expand the 300 series beyond ancient Greece and “use it as a framing device for other conflicts that happened throughout history.”

Snyder is also considering the Alamo and “a battle in China,” to be quite vague about it.

Snyder said: “There may be. There may be. We’ve been talking a lot about sort of different incarnations of 300. We’ve been talking about is there a way, possibly, we move out of Ancient Greece and use it as a framing device for other conflicts that happened throughout history.

“I think I mentioned that we talked about the Revolutionary War version, and we talked about the Alamo, and we’ve talked about there’s a battle in China, a “Lost Legion” kind of concept, any of those kinds of things are on the table.”
