Immortals is an upcoming movie about the gods of Greece and their war with humanity. We have 11 photos for you. If you think that these pictures seem familiar, so do we. At first glance, they look like photos taken from an alternate set of 300.
While the Dawn of the Dead remake was the film that first made us take notice of Zack Snyder, his visceral adaptation of Frank Miller's legendary graphic novel 300 made him a Hollywood heavyweight. So why isn't he getting behind the camera for Xerxes, based on Miller's ancient Greek follow-up?
