Blog Number 111 - New Year's prediction for Frank Miller's '300'

With filming scheduled to be wrapped up around the end of this month, it seems that Frank Miller's '300' will be released sometime in 2006. So here's my prediction for 2006 and the release of '300':

I think that '300' will recoup the money spent and earn much more with pretty good box office receipts, DVD sales and merchandising tie-ins. All of this I'm sure will be scrutinized by George Clooney's Maysville Pictures, who at one time were to produce Steven Pressfield's version of the Battle of Thermopylae entitled 'Gates of Fire'.

If '300' is a success which I believe it will be, I think that Maysville Pictures will reevaluate their position on 'GOF' and sometime in the near future we could see another movie based on the story of the 300 Spartans.

Have a Happy New Year!

Here's what I'd do.I'll immediately set about making 'GOF',for I hope the multiplier effect of fans, both Frank Miller and Steven Pressfield.When the two films vie with each other,we have to go to see it.
