300: Coming in 2007

A bit history lesson, a bit movie preview, a bit Gerry Butler: 300

Says Wikipedia,"300 is a historical epic film directed by Zack Snyder, scheduled to be released in 2007. The film is adapted from Frank Miller's graphic novel of the same name about the Battle of Thermopylae. Miller is involved as an executive producer. The film stars Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, Rodrigo Santoro and David Wenham."

A brief video of the behind the scenes fighting training is interesting. I can't figure out if there's some torso cosmetic stuff or if those guys are really that buff in the midsection. Wow. Neat red cloaks, too.

I know nothing of this Battle. The only thing I know about Thermopylae is that it is the hometown for Michael Malone's massive novel, Handling Sin, which I recommend, by the way.

The comic was pretty cool, though it did have Miller's usual Nietzschean prejudices.
