Based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel, 300 is a retelling of the 480 B.C. Battle of Thermopylae. The official blog has posted a new video interview with one of the crew of the film, discussing costume design. The film is being directed by Zack Snyder (Dawn of the Dead).
Snyder is also directing Watchmen, based on the comic about a group of super-heroes that are outlawed, who must work together to save a doomed Earth from a mysterious force. He is also directing Rainbow Six, based on the Tom Clancy (The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games) novel of the same name, about CIA agent John Clark joining other operatives to leave the agency in order to create a UK-based group dedicated to battling terrorism.
