300 Prequel TV Series In The Works, Director Zack Snyder To Return – SlashFilm


Sword and sandals stories might be making a real comeback, with Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator 2” set to return audiences to Ancient Rome in the near future, so a “300” prequel actually makes a lot of sense. According to Variety everything is still in the early stages of negotiation and there aren’t any writers attached, though the film’s producers and production company are all in talks to join Snyder. No platform has been announced, though the Warner Bros. streaming home, Max, would be the logical guess. 

A prequel could take a number of different routes depending on how early they decide to go, but audiences are more likely to watch characters they already know so a show about a younger Leonidas is likely, perhaps showing his early military experience and later his marriage to Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey). Spartan culture and society was quite a bit different than our own and could provide a fascinating setting for a television series, so it will be interesting to see where Snyder and company take things. This isn’t Snyder’s first attempt to dig back into “300,” having written a sequel film that followed Alexander the Great that Warner Bros. decided not to make, so hopefully this time he gets to take his shot.
