Looks like Robert Rodriguez isn't the only fan of Frank Miller in Hollywood. The writer, fresh off his collaboration with Rodriguez in Sin City is gearing up to have another one of his classic tales adapted for the big screen.

Miller's 300 Goes to Film

According to the folks at AICN, looks like director Zack Snyder (Dawn of the Dead 2004) has signed up to adapt Frank Miller's take on 'The Battle of Thermopylae' in the graphic novel 300. Loosely based on a true story, the comic tells the story King Leonidas and his 300 man army's efforts to defend their land against the incoming invasion by the Persian Army. While not being mentioned with all of Miller's bigger successes (Sin City, The Dark Night Returns, Batman: Year One), this story is definitely one of Miller's better ones.

The film looks to have a budget around $60 million and is close to starting production in Vancouver. AICN also notes how Snyder is intent on filming the movie "shot for panel" similar to how Robert Rodriguez made Sin City.

With Rodriguez recently announcing plans for a Sin City sequel, Batman: Year One used as the basis for Batman Begins and now plans to adapt 300 into a film, 2005 definitely looks to be Frank Miller's year. Stay tuned for more details.

Frank Miller's Sin City comes to DVD on August 16th.
