The IESB has been busy covering Comic-con's little sister convention, Wonder Con, up in San Francisco this weekend. Today, we had a chance to catch up with Zack Snyder, Gerard Butler and more from 300.

Since our last meeting, Zack Snyder had some casting news to talk about. In our interview with him in February, he talked about his current project Watchmen. Watchmen is a story close to Snyder's heart based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore.

The Tom Cruise casting talks came out on the web recently over at Chud where Snyder said it looked like Cruise would not be in the film after all.

However, while talking to Zack at Wonder Con this weekend he confirmed to the IESB that our favorite King of the Spartans, Gerard Butler, would in fact have a role in the film.

They are a winning duo and 300 kicks ass, so why fix it if it's not broken, I always say. Although he wouldn't say exactly which role he would be playing, Butler will definitely be in the Watchmen film.
