Variety has finally unveiled the lead actor in what will be the next turn for one of Frank Miller’s graphic novels. This time the film is 300 based on Miller’s ancient Greek war epic with Dawn of the Dead remake helmer Zack Snyder aboard to direct for Warner Bros.
The film is set to begin filming in Montreal on October 17th and Gerard Butler has signed to star. Variety describes the story as the following:
Snyder and his writing partner, Kurt Johnstad, adapted the screenplay from Miller’s novel and just as Robert Rodriguez did his best to keep to the spirit of Miller’s Sin City it is reported that Warners will rely on hyper-real renderings similar to the stylized illustrations created by Miller for his book.
