Any of you guys read Gates of Fire? Bloody good book and gives a more indepth veiw of Spartan life. Recommended! Good as a comparison piece to 300...

Here is his reply to my email.
Many thanks for the kind words, Georgios. As for "Gates" as a movie, it
will be a long time before anything happens ... if it ever does. "300" is
not helping, that's for sure. Universal Studios has the option but the
project has stalled, largely because "sword and sandal" movies have not done
Thanks for asking!
All my best,
Here is my email to him:
Is there going to be a film adaptation of your novel Gates of Fire? I've
looked at the up coming 300 and I feel that your version of the battle is
more human and real. Also as a person of Greek decent I feel your novels
in my opinion honor my ancestors. I hope that a film version of Gates of
Fire comes to the screen in the near future. Lastly I look forward to
reading your upcoming novel, The Afghan Campaign.
