300 – Frank Miller talks prequel

Posted by LiveFor on December 15, 2009

The Los Angeles Times have a great article about the forthcoming crop of films based on tales from Ancient Greece – The Clash of the Titans, Percy Jacksons and the Olympians to name but two.

They also spoke with Frank Miller about his follow-up feature to 300, the Zack Snyder-directed adaptation of Frank Miller’s graphic novel about King Leonidas and his doomed army of Spartans. It was a huge success and since then there have been rumours of sequel and/or prequels.

Miller said the follow-up is now titled Xerxes, and is set about 10 years before the events of 300. “It’s the battle of Marathon through my lens,” Miller said Wednesday. “I’ve finished the plot and I’m getting started on the artwork.”

Miller said he is not surprised Greece is resurgent in Hollywood. “Every generation returns to ancient Greece because, well, the stories are so damn good,” said the artist, who also directed last year’s The Spirit.

Miller said that during his research trips to Greece he realized that the myth and history overlap begins to blur, which adds to the storytelling allure. “The fact and the myth are inseparable and, believe me, when you go sailing for a while in the Aegean Sea, you start believing in Poseidon.”

There you have it. Straight from the creator’s mouth. 300 prequel is good to go and sounds very interesting. Will Zack Snyder or Gerard Butler return? Do you want to see a prequel?

Reign of Death – Noel Clarke’s sci-fi pulp noir detective short film

Posted by LiveFor on September 7, 2009

reignposterReign of Death is a sci-fi pulp noir detective short film, starring BAFTA Winner Noel Clarke (KidULTHOOD, Dr Who and the forthcoming Centurion), written and directed by Matthew Savage, using loads of CG backgrounds as they did with Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, 300 and Sin City. It was shot with the RED camera which is one of those super-duper high falutin’ digital HD super cameras.

Looks like it could be very cool as sci-fi pulp noir detective stories often are.
