Zack Snyder Says The Next ’300′ Sequel Could Move to Different Times in History

A few weeks ago, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder spoke on his desire to possibly make a movie about George Washington, done in the style of a 300 movie. The idea was predictably hit with a wave of skepticism and mockery from fans, since it is essentially, fairly silly. But it looks like Snyder’s idea might reach farther than just the Revolutionary War.

While speaking with Collider recently, Snyder revealed that there have been talks of doing another sequel to 300but it might abandon the Ancient Greece settings of the first two films, according to the filmmaker.

Here’s what he had to say about the franchise’s future:

“We’ve been talking a lot about sort of different incarnations of 300. We’ve been talking about is there a way, possibly, we move out of Ancient Greece and use it as a framing device for other conflicts that happened throughout history.

I think I mentioned that we talked about the Revolutionary War version, and we talked about the Alamo, and we’ve talked about there’s a battle in China, a “Lost Legion” kind of concept, any of those kinds of things are on the table.”

As you can probably tell, all of the stories have a connective theme when it comes to a group of mismatched soldiers going up against a much larger, more powerful army, and honestly, I don’t hate this idea. I don’t love it either, but I could see a world where I wouldn’t mind seeing a 300 version of the Alamo or something like that.

Granted, I could also see a world where I would hate every single one of these things. I guess it would all come down to how they’re done and handled because I’ll be honest, I really don’t want to see a mostly sepia-toned version of the Revolutionary War. Please. Anything but that.
