Coming Soon reports
that Warner Bros. will be making Frank Miller's graphic novel called the 300
into a film. The 300
tells the tale of the Battle of Thermopylae where King Leonidas and 300 Spartan soldiers fought against the massive Persian army led by King Xerxes. Coming Soon says Zach Snyder, who will direct the film, also adapted it into a screenplay with help from Kurt Johnstad. Gerard Butler will star as King Leonidas and production will begin on October 17, 2005.
