300 & Panda sequels

06.26.2008

300 Steve over at Collider spoke with 300 producers Mark Canton, Gianni Nunnari and Bernie Goldmann at the recent Saturn Awards and got them to reveal that not only are they working on a Blu-ray edition of the film but they're planning a sequel and/or prequel. How they plan to do that for a film based on an historic event is unknown but this is Hollywood, baby. They can sequelize the shit out of anything and, in fact, they've got Frank Miller busy working up a brand new CGI enhanced story. Read the rest of what they had to say, including who they've gotten to direct another 300 style-film, WAR OF GODS, over HERE.

In related news, someone over at the Animation Guild Blog recently revealed some news about a KUNG FU PANDA sequel and about a hand drawn addition to the original KUNG FU PANDA dvd. He says: "But down on the lower levels, artists are working. A story crew has started early work in Kung Fu Panda, the Sequel, even while animators are hand-drawing new material for the DVD of Kung Fu Panda, the original." Read more about it over HERE.

Extra Tidbit: As long as they bring back a half-naked Lena Headey, it's all good.

Perhaps do a story based upon the Spartan that led it's navy. If I remember my history channel correctly, was one of the primary reasons why the Persians were unable to sustain the war by cutting them off from any supplies. He even duped the Spartan political leaders into funding a navy when there wasn't a need for one at the time. Spectacular sea battles abound!

300 Sequel?

What would it be called...302?

This seems like fodder for a lame SNL or...(gulp)...MadTV skit, not a REAL big-budget blockbuster.

But, if Hollywood's goin' to make a sequel to Donnie Darko, anything's free game.

In the immortal words of comic book guy: Worst. Sequel idea. EVER.

I'm totally up for seeing some 2d animated Kung fu Panda like the intro was. That was one of the best parts of the movie!

And to a 300 sequel/prequel. First off a sequel wouldnt be good because no Butler, who made 300 as awesome as it is. And for a prequel I don't think there would be any battle Leonidas was in that would be as interesting as the battle of the 300 was. So nay to both, but yay to Kung Fu Panda!

300 Sequel

They might focus on David Wenham's character, Dilios, as the lead. Though that is if they make a sequel not a prequel....and that's a BIG if!

The Rock can lead as a Persian or some shit with the Spartans as a villian. I don't know this is gay either way I'm a Film major and the sequels and remakes are seriously just bullshit anymore.

Im all up for the 300 follow up especially if miller does the spartans as the enemies like he said he was thinking of doing. I think the fall of sparta would be a great way to go with it.

Sequel

It would be interesting to see if they did make a sequel for 300 and didn't have Butler as the lead. Any thoughts on who it could focus on?

No surprises here

After seeing the box office numbers, I knew after the first weekend that Panda would be getting a sequel. If madagascar can get a sequel, and ice age can get 2 (shakes head is disbelief), than you knew this was coming.

I enjoyed 300, but a spinoff sounds bad. Will they call it 600, and market it at twice as good as the original? No, it'll probably be worse than that joke.

Pretending I never even read about any sort of "300" sequel, I just wanna say as a big fan of hand-drawn animation I'm glad that with something as big as "Kung Fu Panda" they don't mind paying animators to do the old-fashioned thing, even if it's only for the DVD.

I'm all for a Kung Fu Panda sequel. It was a well done movie that everyone can see. As for a "300" sequel, that sounds like a Bad idea. I'm not a fan of "300" and thought that it was just some dudes who liked "movies about gladiators" making a movie about gladiators. Too much of a sausage-fest for me. As a country, we need more fish in our diet and less meat! :-)

I wouldn't object to a 300-style film about the battle of Marathon, given that it's even mentioned in the film, but an actual sequel to the actual film? That would be horrid.

A sequel to Kung-Fu Panda?

Bring it on! The first one was fantastic and was fully expecting this to roll into a franchise before the end credits even roll. As long as it keeps the same quality as the first one, I"m all for it.

300+? WTF

Come on now 300 was based on things that really happened. Now they are going to add more to the story? Thats just sad, next thing you know we'll see a civil war movie about ninja's that help the south win. This is painly just a stupid idea. 300 is a great film, one that would live on as its own movie for years to come. I hope this idea gets dropped faster then JLA.

I don't mind the sequel/prequel to 300. But Kung Fu panda? Can't Hollywood be anymore creative then to just make sequels of every movie that made the slightest bit of profit?
