Default 300: Rise of an Empire

From Hero Complex:
'Percy Jackson' and 'Clash of the Titans' draw on same Greek myths but with epic differences

The Zack Snyder film, the highest-grossing March release ever, was based on Frank Millers graphic novel about King Leonidas and his doomed army of Spartans; Miller is preparing a follow-up now titled Xerxes, which begins about 10 years before the events of 300, and Snyder has expressed interest in it as a film property as well. Its the battle of Marathon through my lens, Miller said Wednesday. Ive finished the plot and Im getting started on the artwork.

Miller said he is not surprised Greece is resurgent in Hollywood. Every generation returns to ancient Greece because, well, the stories are so damn good, said the artist, who also directed last years The Spirit. Miller said that during his research trips to Greece he realized that the myth and history overlap begins to blur, which adds to the storytelling allure. The fact and the myth are inseparable and, believe me, when you go sailing for a while in the Aegean Sea, you start believing in Poseidon.
