[post-album postid="205203" item="1"]Graham King is developing Spartacus as a feature film, focusing on the rebel leader who took on the Roman Empire and less on seeing Lucy Lawless's boobies. The project is based on a pitch from who else but  300 writer Michael B. Gordon.

Based on the novel by Howard Fast, the movie will deal with the historical facts rather than the totally bullshit Spartacus that appeared in Stanley Kubrick's 1960 film and the Starz show about boning and CGI blood. This picture is said to focus on Spartacus leading a rebellion of 70,000 gladiators and 50,000 slaves against the Army of Rome. He didn't really win but this material likely loans itself to slow-motion battle cries and some really good speeches. Go picture! (Variety)
