A quick note on the progress of highly anticipated (by me, at least) geek film 300. ICv2 is reporting that director Zack Snyder has now completed a full nine weeks of filming, and hopes to wrap up principle photography by the end of the month of January. As to an expected release date- "Although the 300 movie is still slated for 2006, no firm date for its release is available yet." Zack has often stated his desire to keep the movie accurate to the novel, and who can blame him after the tremendous reception fans gaveSin City. If you click on over, you can see just a small example of movie/comic book frame comparison for 300- but a better selection can be seen at the official website we told you about earlier this week.
