You and I may not have seen anything beyond the carefully chosen-for-release production photos and teaser trailers, but the people at Warner Bros. have surely seen it all, and are apparently exceptionally impressed with the storytelling and directorial talents of just-emerging director Zach Snyder and his 300 flick. Granted, Snyder is off to a great storytelling start simply by choosing Frank Miller's 300 as his source material, but we've seen more than enough good comics go terribly awry when the movie world gets ahold of them, so credit must of course go to Snyder if this film turns out to be as impressive as all early indicators lead us to think.
So impressed, in fact, are the people at Warner Bros. who have hooked Snyder and his brand-new Cruel and Unusual Films into a two year first-look deal. And, of course, Warners is behind Snyder's next major comic book project as well -- that is, if you actually believe people anymore when they tell you they're turning Alan Moore's Watchmen into a movie.
