Recently, Legendary Pictures have given out confirmation that the studio have been developing the follow-up of "300" for Warner Bros. Pictures. The production company further announced that they will team up with Frank Miller, the original creator of "300", for the script of the second movie and is looking forward to sign director Zack Snyder once again to take the behind-the-lens role as helmer.
On the part of Snyder, the filmmaker has confessed that though he is definitely interested in working for the film's future project, he won't make any commitment yet until he has seen where Miller will be taking the next movie. Additionally, Snyder allegedly is the one who has ignited sequel speculation once again when he discussed about the possibility of the second movie at the 34th Saturn Awards on June 24.
