Director Zach Snyder Wants to Make a 300-Style Movie about George Washington

(Historically accurate image of Washington crossing the Delaware River by Jason Heuser)

History teaches us that Washington once threw a knife into Heaven and could kill with a stare (NSFW). He was the superhero of the American Revolutionary War.

Naturally, these facts inspire Zach Snyder, the director of the movie Batman v. Superman. He'd like to make a biographical movie about George Washington in the style of 300, the story of the Spartans at Thermoplyae and one of the great movies of all time. Bloomberg Business has the scoop:

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.”

It was actually the Hessians at Trenton. But Snyder can later make a sequel about how Washington outsmarted Cornwallis during the Princeton campaign a week later. Spoiler: it involved riger tigers.
