Frank Miller chats with MTV.com about the movie verison of 300:
“Heroes aren’t necessarily the people who get the medal at the end of the story, like Luke Skywalker does. Or get the woman, or get cheered at the end of every story or come back to school like Harry Potter,” Miller declared. “Heroes are the people who do things that are right.”
For the Spartans, doing what was right meant holding off the mammoth Persian invasion for as long as they could while Athenian fleets amassed offshore. They made it three spectacular days before finally getting slaughtered, and March 2007′s “300″ will depict all the drama, action and heroism as vividly as possible on film.
“There are a lot of good [scenes like] the first shot of the Spartan phalanx charging,” Miller enthused. “But one that is really startling and original is when the Spartans push a pile of corpses the size of a three-story building over on the enemy. It’s pretty startling.”
