Warner Bros. Television declined comment.

The movie, co-written and directed by Zack Snyder, was a breakout hit that drew attention for its visuals.

Based on the 1998 comic book series of the same name by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley, the film is a fictionalized take on the Battle of Thermopylae in the Greco-Persian Wars. It stars Gerard Butler as King Leonidas, who leads 300 Spartans into battle against the invading Persian “God-King” Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and his army of more than 300,000.

A sequel, 300: Rise of an Empire, was released in 2014.

Variety was first to report the news.
