Producer Hints at 300 Sequel, Revival of King Leonidas

by at . Comments

300 spoiler alert: King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) dies at the end of the movie.

But in a recent interview with MTV, producer Mark Canton implied that the king might return for the inevitable 300 sequel.

“[The key to the sequel] is about getting it right, you know. [Writer Frank Miller] is a perfectionist, and so is [Director Zack Snyder]," said Canton. "And I think they set the bar pretty high.”

As for King Leonidas? Canton added:

“Never assume anything; never assume anything. 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.”
