Movie Fact #766 – May 29th, 2015:

Just to be clear, 2014’s “300: Rise of an Empire”, the follow-up to 2007’s “300” which itself is based on the 1998 comic series of the same name by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley, was not an original work. “300: Rise of an Empire” is actually based on the as-yet-unreleased Frank Miller graphic novel “Xerxes”. The film is also co-written and co-produced by Zack Snyder, who directed and co-wrote the first “300”.

“300” in 2007 was made to follow the graphic novel, from which it was based on, to the letter in terms of it’s story. In fact, Snyder used the graphic novel like pre-conceived storyboards for the film to capture the story correctly from the graphic novel. I wonder how closely “300: Rise of the Empire” is adapted from it’s source material? Maybe the graphic novel “Xerxes” will be released some day and we’ll find out.
