Frank Miller’s 300 Prequel Xerxes Unvield, Will It Ever Reach The Silver Screen?

Here is a first look at the cover of Frank Miller‘s prequel to his comic 300, which has been scheduled for a silver screen adaption. Miller, who was the mastermind behind the comic that inspired the film 300 has been hard at work for almost three years now creating Xerxes (the graphic novel). Dark Horse Comics finally have given us a sneak peek into what Miller has been doing – in the form of a cover.

The title seems to suggest that the main story will revolve around the Persian ruler Xerxes, who also played the resident baddy in Zack Snyder‘s 300. While talking to the LA Times Miller explained Xerxes (graphic novel) as below:

The story will be the same heft as ‘300‘ but it cover a much, much greater span of time — it’s 10 years, not three days… This is a more complex story. The story is so much larger. The Spartans in ‘300‘ were being enclosed by the page as the world got smaller. This story has truly vast subjects. The Athenian naval fleet, for instance, is a massive artistic undertaking and it dwarfed by the Persian fleet, which is also shown in this story. The story has elements of espionage, too, and it’s a sweeping tale with gods and warriors.

Personally I think if you read what Miller has to say in a over all context what I think he meant to say Xerxes (film) will be completely different and over complicated. But thats just what I see, don’t quote me on this but I don’t expect Xerxes (film) is going to happen – and if so be any good.
