Blog Number 64 - The Stax Report's review of Michael Gordon's draft of Frank Miller's '300'

The last four blogs that I have posted have all made reference to Stax's review of the Michael Gordon adaptation of Frank Miller's '300'. While I have commented on several of the scenarios which appeared in the draft and which I hope come to fruition, the truth of the matter is that they probably won't see the light of day. Here's to wishful thinking, since as Stax mentioned to me the other day, Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad had written a new script which is being used for the movie.

I thought that I should provide the link to Stax's review so that you could see that Michael Gordon had some pretty good ideas. I still feel that because of the genesis of several characters and scenes that at least some part of Gordon's draft has been encompassed within the Snyder/Johnstad framework.

Hi John,
Thanks for the link.The contents of the draft is wonderful enough to venture.I'm a little fuzzy about the details,but I hope that the persons concerned show flashes of genius.

Hi Miyuki~

There seem to be quite a few people credited with their input to the script! I believe in that old adage that two heads are better than one.

Here's hoping that I am right!!!

Cheers,

John
