Early Story on Frank Miller's 300 Movie

This comes from Mike Sampson back in August 2005...

"Gerard Butler (PHANTOM OF THE OPERA) has signed on to star in the upcoming adaptation of the Frank Miller graphic novel 300. Zack Snyder (DAWN OF THE DEAD) will direct the film for Warner Bros and wrote the script with partner Kurt Johnstad. Butler will star as King Leonidas who led 300 Spartan soldiers against the massive Persian army at the battle of Thermopylae. As the story goes, their moxie inspired all the Greeks to rise up against King Xerxes and start the beginnings of a democratic society. The project will use "hyper-real renderings" that will be designed to imitate the illustrations from the novel."

And as we can tell from the stills and the trailers, the graphics and cinematography ROCK!

Very cool!
