Zack Snyder Won’t Be Directing ‘Xerxes’. Thanks Anyway, Though.

Wednesday, April 6 by

Nobody wants to drink the Zack Snyder Kool-Aid anymore. After Sucker Punch‘s defeat at the hands of a Wimpy Kid, it looks like Snyder is beginning to have a tough time in Hollywood. And much like the deformed Spartan outcast Ephialtes, Snyder is now being shunned by his own countrymen. Politely, of course.

ComingSoon caught up with Mark Canton and asked him about the 300 prequel, Xerxes, only to find that maybe Zack Snyder is no longer the man for the job.

“I can’t say. I mean, he’s got Superman. He’s busy. We’re busy. I don’t think we’re going to wait two years. But we’ll work together with him and figure out who the filmmaker should be if he doesn’t direct it.”

Then Canton tearfully returned Snyder’s class ring, saying, “My ride is leaving. I’d better go.” He got into his dad’s idling Cutlass Ciera, loaded down with the heft of his personal belongings, and headed off toward Vassar and a world of new opportunity.
