300 could come back to screens in 3D

03.22.2010

Like everything that's not a romcom or family drama (and I'm sure they'll get the treatment eventually), filmmaker Zack Snyder's upcoming animated movie LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS and his all-girl action flick SUCKER PUNCH are being configured for 3D. Warner Bros. is in a particular frenzy for the format.

But are studios sifting back through the archives for catalog titles to retrofit with an extra dimension?

It sounds like Snyder's 300 is a likely candidate for 3D re-release, as it has already been partially converted to convince the director of the dazzle factor. "I saw maybe like a ten-minute section that they'd just done," he tells Superhero Hype. "I haven't seen the whole movie but they're talking about doing the whole movie."

Snyder also briefly talks about the proposed 300 follow-up, which would revolve around the 8-foot warrior fruit Xerxes. "I'm waiting on Frank (Miller) for the sequel to 300 and there's a really good chance that will be the thing we do," he says. "He's been working hard, so he's supposed to show me something really soon; actually in the next few months, he's going to show me something."

"I'll take it and I'll adapt it and make it into a movie and I'll write a screenplay, but I want him to do whatever he thinks. I'm not going to say I'm 100%, like that's it, but on the other hand, I'm pretty confident it's going to be awesome."

Extra Tidbit: Of all the recent movies to redo with 3D, 300 is easily one of the best choices. But can you handle a whole new set of Leonidas memes?

DVD

i would vote no to putting it out in theaters again in 3D, but wouldn't be opposed to a 3D dvd release of 300... Frankly I'm still not tired of the badassedness of this movie and still love it. I think the style and graphics, etc. would make for a pretty amazing 3D look!

I love that movie but this desperate cash-grabbing 3D mania is already repulsive, and it started just a few months ago.

Could be fun....

but I'm suprised they haven't talked about re-releasing Lord of the Rings in 3D, since they're doing everything else. Not gonna lie, I would go see that.

fuck that shit

Just bring it on 3d BR if they really think it "needs" a 3d treatment. Otherwise, refer to the title of my post.

Hey if you're going to 3D-fy everything, might as well pick the best choices. And 300 is an awesome choice for 3D (although I wouldn't have cared if it was left as 2D anyway). As for a 300 prequel / sequel...we'll see. 300 was an awesome flick, but we all know it lacked story. The same could be done for the next 300. Lets be honest and say that as long as there's fantastic visuals, we're gonna' pay money to see it. :)

Oh yeah.....

Oh yeah, and re-releasing this in 3D is a bad idea. In fact, the whole converting films to 3D in post thing is a bad idea.

Lotta Hate.

Wow! There is a lot of hate out there for 300. Damn. I loved that movie. Still love that movie. Sure its propaganda. Sure its not historically accurate. But damn. It's one of the only films to unabashadly cater to the shameless male ego. You don't have to feel sensitive watching this, you don't have to pretend to cry, or have any emotion other than, hell yeah!

HINT: It's not supposed to be deep!

All this hate is further proof the western male is being turned into a pussy. Just

What are you talking about? Much of the "hate" in these comments are about 3D. I liked "300" a lot, but I'm not going to see it in 3D.

Aside from that much of 300 felt like a side-scroll movie, it would make sense to make all the spears pointy.

But God, I am so tired of 300! First time I saw it I was all WOW. Then I saw it again, and hated it.

Can we get the movie Troll 2 back in theaters in 3D too? That'd be awesome.

I wish...

I wish the worst upon whoever came up with this stupid idea (and whoever is excited to see this). Awful.

If I were to ever watch 300 again it would be on my dvd player so I could fast forward through all the "lolplot" parts and just watch the action scenes.

I enjoyed "300" but I'm not going to pay again to see it. It's not good enough to warrant more money from my pocket.

I wish there was an option for a double negative post, 1 for 3D and 1 for a 300 sequel/prequel. I really like 300, but it's not a movie I'd really pay $12+ for again to see in theaters just b/c its 3D. And the whole sequel or prequel idea just reeks of a money grab.
