“In 480 B.C., an invading Persian army, two-million strong, came to the mountain pass of Thermopylae (Gates of Fire) in eastern Greece. Led by King Xerxes, they were met by the finest three hundred Spartan warriors ….Here, the Greek loyalists hoped, the elite force could hold off, at least for a short while, the invading millions” Have any at HTF with a close ear to industry news, heard discussion about any possibility of production starting on this film?? I check every 6 months since first reading “Gates of Fire” just did a google and am still running into same old news, very outdated. http://filmforce.ign.com/articles/036/036023p1.html Did they give up on this project due to blowing budget/genre allowances on other ‘epic’ period pieces like “Troy”? I would much rather have seen a good attempt at Pressfields novel coming to screen. Any one heard anything?
