Zack Snyder will be at the helm for Frank Miller's '300' and since I was unfamiliar with his work, I had had to check out what other movies he's directed. I learned that he had directed the 2004 remake of the cult classic 'Dawn of the Dead' which I hadn't seen and according to the reviews, had more than its fair share of gore and violence.
There will always be the inevitable comparisons made between an original and the remake(s) that follow(s), and of course, 'Dawn of the Dead' is no exception. According to the majority of the critics and viewers, it seems as if Zack Snyder did a pretty credible job which bodes well for those who are fans of the '300' comics. I believe that with Snyder directing, his adaptation of Miller & Varley's '300' will be brought to the big screen with the same amount of graphic detail as the comics.
If you've seen 'Dawn of the Dead', do you think '300' will be a R-rated movie for the depiction of the battle?
