300 prequel news

Before wrapping up this 2009, while waiting for HBO to make a decision on Game of Thrones, there's some news coming from Frank Miller, the creator of the graphic novel, on which the blockbuster of 2007, 300, with Lena as Queen Gorgo was based. The LA Times reports that Miller has completed a new graphic novel, which should be a prequel to 300 and should be titled Xerxes, from the name of the Persian King. Here's an excerpt from the article:
The Zack Snyder film, the highest-grossing March release ever, was based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel about King Leonidas and his doomed army of Spartans; Miller is preparing a follow-up now titled Xerxes, which begins about 10 years before the events of 300, and Snyder has expressed interest in it as a film property as well. “It’s the battle of Marathon through my lens,” Miller said Wednesday. “I’ve finished the plot and I’m getting started on the artwork.”

Zack Snyder is interested in directing this prequel, but  nothing is known about the cast and since the prequel should focus on the Battle of Marathon - fought by the Athenians against the Persians, led by King Darius - is not highly likely that  the story will feature Lena's Queen Gorgo and Butler's Leonidas at all, as the Spartans didn't really take part to this battle, but let's just wait and see, everything is possible...
The IMDB already has a page for this movie, for more info you can also read articles on the MTV news blog and MovieGoods blog. Well for sure a 300 prequel without Lena doesn't look so interesting :P And speaking of 300 check out this very short interview with a cute and funny Lena!
