It looks like Warner Bros. is looking to convert Zack Snyder's 300 into 3D with a possible theatrical release. Snyder was recently shown a 3D clip from the film and here's what he had to say to SuperHeroHype.
I saw maybe like a ten-minute section that they'd just done, I haven't seen the whole movie but they're talking about doing the whole movie.
As much as I liked 300 I could care less to see it in this 3D conversion. I really don't see the point, it seems like a waste of money to me. It was this little viewing where Snyder decided to convert his next live-action film into 3D. Once Snyder is done with Sucker Punch he may end up going back to direct the prequel to 300, Xerxes. Here's what he had to say about that.
I'm waiting on Frank (Miller) for the sequel to '300' and there's a really good chance that will be the thing we do. He's been working hard, so he's supposed to show me something really soon; actually in the next few months, he's going to show me something. There was a big discussion about what we would do for the sequel to '300' and I said, "I didn't tell Frank what to write the first time, and I'm not telling him what to write this time. I'll take it and I'll adapt it and make it into a movie and I'll write a screenplay, but I want him to do whatever he thinks. I'm not going to say I'm 100%, like that's it, but on the other hand, I'm pretty confident it's going to be awesome. That would be the next thing and then I'm working on a sci-fi thing that Kurt and I are writing together, an original thing.
So there ya have it! 300 3D conversion. Suckerpunch 3D Conversion. 300 prequel to be Zack Snyder's next film, hopefully it will actually be shot in 3D and not converted. And after that a sci-fi thing... whatever that is.
What are your thoughts on all of this?
