According to Variety, Frank Miller is working on a follow-up to 300, his comic from Dark Horse that was adapted into a movie last year — and Legendary Pictures confirms they’re developing it into a movie.
Unfortunately they’re short on details about the story, which should prove challenging based on what happens at the end of the first one. So this one could be a prequel or spin-off, they hypothesize.
More from Variety:
“The vision of Frank Miller’s universe that Zack Snyder brought to the screen in ’300′ is unlike anything ever seen before,” said Legendary topper Thomas Tull. “We want to be certain that the story originates with Frank and be as compelling as the first.”
Another “300″ has been rumored from the start, but last week Snyder and the original producing team stoked a frenzy online when they talked about it at the Saturn Awards.
Snyder has yet to confirm his involvement, as he’d rather wait and see what the story’s going to be first. Both Snyder and Miller are pretty busy on Hollywood sets these days, with Miller directing The Spirit and a Sin City sequel in the works, and Snyder focused on Watchmen and Guardians of Ga’Hoole.
