A new extended TV spot for the upcoming film, 300: Rise of an Empire, has just debuted. In it, we're given a quick refresher on the story and what to expect in the film's narrative.
Frank Miller apparently hasn't completed his sequel to the comic series 300, Xerxes, over the course of nearly three years. This pace means the movie version of the story, titled 300: Rise of an Empire, will almost certainly be out well ahead of the book when it arrives in theaters on March 7.
ICv2 reports that Miller has finished two issues of the five-issue series. That's how far along he was when Dark Horse Comics CEO Mike Richardson talked to ICv2 in early 2011. Miller "has every intention of returning to the remaining Xerxes issues when his Hollywood commitments are complete," the site reports.
In the 7+ years since 300 hit theaters, hints at a potential sequel, both to the movie and its inspiration, Frank Miller's 1998 comic series, have been coming at a trickle.
A new trailer has confirmed that a movie sequel titled 300: Rise of an Empire will be coming out next March, and it'll be based on Miller's graphic novel sequel, of which fans saw a preview back in Dark Horse Presents back in 2011.
