When he’s not preoccupied with the future of the DC Cinematic Universe, filmmaker Zack Snyder has been talking briefly about other projects he might pursue once he has the time – projects which have raised eyebrows. Earlier this week came word of his desire to do a film adaptation of Ayn Rand’s “The Fountainhead,” and a few weeks back he suggested he wanted to do a George Washington biopic in the style of “300”.
Indeed it seems the later might ended up being a direct part of “300”, Snyder revealing in a new interview with Collider this weekend that beyond the sequel “300: Rise of an Empire,” there’s talk of essentially turning the “300” name into a franchise brand that could be slapped onto tales of any historical battle in which a small group takes on a mighty army. When asked if there would be a third “300” film, 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.”
Snyder is busy in the near future though with the release of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” this coming Friday and the beginning of filming on the first part of “Justice League” next month.
