'300' Helmer Takes on 'Guardians'


Zack Snyder


Zack Snyder, the helmer of Spartan epic '300', will be directing an animation film titled 'Guardians of Ga'Hoole'.

The filmmaker behind the successful Greek warriors action drama "300", Zack Snyder, is going to shift his filming genre to animated motion picture as he is reportedly going to tackle "Guardians of Ga'Hoole". According to Variety, the 42-year-old has been tapped to direct the animation film adapted from Kathryn Lasky's children book series.

In bringing the animation to the big screen, Snyder will be teaming up with Village Roadshow and Warner Bros. Pictures since Roadshow will produce the film and Warner is set to distribute. Apart from working with the two studios, the helmer of George Romero's "Dawn of the Dead" is going to direct the cast using a script written by "A Mighty Heart" scribbler John Orloff and "Master and Commander" writer John Collee.

Set in the fictional Forest of Tyto, "Guardians" follows the story of Barn Owls whose peaceful home is threatened to be destroyed by an evil. Slash Films further explained that the term "Ga'Hoole" actually means "great spirit of Hoole" in the owl language. The film is set for 2009 release.
