Will Zack Snyder Return for Xerxes?

“I can’t say,” said Canton when asked if Snyder would be directing the film, “I mean, he’s got ‘Superman.’ He’s busy. We’re busy. I don’t think we’re going to wait two years. But we’ll work together with him and figure out who the filmmaker should be if he doesn’t direct it.”

Snyder is certainly involved with the project in some capacity, though, as he’ll be providing the screenplay alongside 300 co-writer Kurt Johnstad.

“We’re taking a lot of time because [Zach] really did create something that goes in the time capsule,” Canton explained, “We want to be faithful to the first one, but we don’t want to do a conventional sequel. But we’re getting close.”
