Zack Snyder Plans Last Photograph
300 director can't stop lining up plans

12 October 2007  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Variety

Since the success of 300, director Zack Snyder has attached his name to, by our count, sixteen gajillion planned films. He's currently shooting Watchmen, for example, but he's also developing an adaptation of Ray Bradbury's The Illustrated Man, planning an original fantasy drama with Sucker Punch, and developing Army of the Dead. As well as Cobalt 60 (although all's gone silent on that point). Today's news throws another project on his To Do list, with the announcement that he's planning a change of pace by developing The Last Photograph, a war drama set in Afghanistan.

300's Kurt Johnstad is writing the script, based on one of Snyder's ideas, about a war photograph that becomes the catalyst for a journey that two men take through war-torn Afghanistan.

The two are planning to develop the script and then auction it, so it's not entirely clear if Snyder will end up directing. But even with his slate filled from now until 3000AD, we wouldn't rule it out. After all, he is an honourary Spartan, and they don't let niceties like sleep get in their way.

Gotta agree with jpt1976.
Take your time dude. Dawn of the Dead was exceptional and 300 was groundbreaking in execution at least. Plenty of time to blow your load. No need to spray at the first thing that gets your dick hard. More

Maybe it's so thet when studio's realise he's a very very mediocre director he has so many contracts signed they have to let him keep making films More

Slow down Zack...
...please don't feel you have to churn out dozens of projects. I enjoyed 'Dawn Of The Dead' and '300', but I'd prefer you don't burn yourself out and start producing crap. More
