Gerard Butler Could Return to '300' Sequel


Gerard Butler Could Return to '300' Sequel
Producer Mark Canton won't close the door for the chance that King Leonidas, played by Gerard Butler in '300', may be resurrected in the sequel.


There is a slight possibility that Gerard Butler will return to reprise his King Leonidas role in "300" sequel. In a chat with MTV, producer Mark Canton hints that King Leonidas may well be brought back from the dead. "Never assume anything; never assume anything," he said when responding to the question if the original cast of "300" were gone for good.

Canton further explained, "It'll be what it'll be. But if we really do it, in this case, we have a visionary creator and a visionary filmmaker." Aside from addressing the casting possibility, the "Land of the Dead" producer also revealed that the sequel is moving forward well. "Things are always looking good with '300,' it's a blessing and a gift," he said.

"Zack's a genius, and no matter where you go it's the one movie that people around the world seem to somewhat identify with the most," Canton stated. "We're thrilled for [a sequel]; it'll be a blast. There's a new Blu-Ray coming out all over again shortly, so that's great. It's like the gift that never stops giving."

Though nothing is certain yet, the sequel to 2007 epic battle film "300" is said to be dealing with "a further story in the Greco-Persian Wars", as claimed by comic book writer-director Frank Miller. The possibility of it picking up a prequel story has been ruled out earlier.

"300" itself chronicles the story of King Leonidas and his 300 Spartans who fight to their death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army in ancient battle of Thermopylae. Based on the epic graphic novel by Frank Miller, it stars Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, David Wenham and Dominic West among others.
