If I'm ever in the mood for muscle, war and glory, 300 is my go-to film. I pretty much fell in love with Gerard Butler after that one, and can you blame me? The brawn, his beard, that bronzed body — it was all so very manly.
Zack Snyder, the director of said film, wants to keep the bulging bodies coming with a 300-style George Washington movie. And why the fuck not, eh?!
Bloomberg Business interviewed Snyder and had this to say:
Meanwhile, Snyder is spending late nights in his cavernous office working on the upcoming Justice League movie. He’s also thinking about making films that aren’t comic book adaptations. Sort of. One of these days, he’d like to make one about George Washington in the style of 300. He has a picture in his office of the Revolutionary War hero crossing the icy Delaware on his way to decimate the British in the Battle of Trenton. “We were talking about it,” Snyder says. “The first thing we asked was, well, how are we going to make it look? I pointed at this painting. It looks like 300. It’s not that hard.”
The War Of Independence wasn't a pretty one, so expect this gritty biopic to be insanely bloody. I can't wait to watch George Washington attack the British using his famed wooden teeth as his weapon of choice.
Snyder might not be aware that Robot Chicken created just this scenario, which was posted to YouTube back in 2009, and perhaps this idea had been floating around in his subconscious due to the fact.
My advice? Please end with a scene in which George Washington travels to the present day and drop kicks Donald Trump (or should I say Drumpf?) in the face while he blusters at a Republican Convention. Then Washington grabs the mic and yells, "Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism!" before flying away on his trusty steed, a.k.a. a majestic bald eagle, while eating a burger with one hand and shooting bullets in the air with the other.
Nothin's more 'Murica than that.
