Zack Snyder Reveals Warner Bros. Passed On His Third '300' Movie

Zack Snyder is getting candid about another 300 movie.

The 55-year-old Justice League director revealed in an interview with The Playlist that he had started a third installment of the franchise during the pandemic, but that Warner Bros. ultimately decided not to move forward with the project.

Find out what Zack had to say inside…

“I just couldn’t really get my teeth into it,” Zack said. “Over the pandemic, I had a deal with Warner Bros. and I wrote what was essentially going to be the final chapter in ‘300.’”

“But when I sat down to write it I actually wrote a different movie. I was writing this thing about Alexander the Great, and it just turned into a movie about the relationship between Hephaestion and Alexander. It turned out to be a love story. So it really didn’t fit in as the third movie,” he continued.

However, Zack implied that the new direction didn’t necessarily meet up with the studio’s expectations.

“There was that concept, and it came out really great,” Zack continued. “It’s called Blood and Ashes, and it’s a beautiful love story, really, with warfare. I would love to do it, [Warner Bros.] said no… you know, they’re not huge fans of mine. It is what it is.”

Zack worked with Netflix for his latest movie, Army of the Dead, and the box office numbers were recently revealed!
