The main focus of the news is that the guy who played Xerxes is in negotiations to return but he also talks a bit about the plot.
I have to say I had reservations when the sequel was first announced and they’ve only got worse. It all sounds complicated and a bit forced which for the type of film 300 is I can’t see really working.
That’s kind of what concerns me. The first film had a nice simple plot that didn’t get in the way of the stylized violence. (Persians are evil and invade Greece; Spartans are good (sort of) and respond by stabbing/decapitating/kicking them down bottomless pits.)
I’m a bit worried though that the sequel will end up getting bogged down in exposition leaving little time for the stabbing/decapitating/…
