More adventures in the 21st century

It's not that C21 to have a film based on a comic book.

It's not C21 to have a film based on the battle of Thermopylae.

It's not even C21 to have a Frank Miller comic book based on the battle of Thermopylae.

But it's a little furture-shock-wierd to have a film based on a comic book based on the battle of Thermopylae. [1]

(It must be the same future where Dave Cockrum, best known for drawing making the X-Men successful gets most of a page for his obituary in the Independent)


[1] Due to the wierdness of Hollywood (and as this post notes that wierdness is understandable and, indeed, sometimes a good thing) the time between wrapping a film and it's release is a good time for those involved to pitch their next projects(s). The director, has Zack Snyder attached himself to Watchmen, which is a film that really should have been made in the 20th Century.
