300 Sequel Very Likely, But Not 100% Confirmed

Although no direct questions on a sequel came about during press events for 300 yesterday, and especially given that Frank Miller was absent due to an injury, confirmation on a possible "sequel" to 300 was tough to get. However, producer Mark Canton did speak very briefly about the possibly. They are obviously currently waiting to see how successful 300 will be at the box office and then from there are planning where to go next.
However, Mark did say the following: "If it all works out I'm sure we'll all be scrambling Zack [Snyder] and Frank Miller and everyone to figure out exactly '301'. Where there's a will there's a way, honestly. And the thing about Frank, you just don't know - he has a lot of stories he may want to tell that may be associated or not, but we just want this one to satisfy first."
Another interesting observation is that as the other press member was asking her question at the press conference, she stated first, "but you know there's no way to make a '301'" and Mark quietly said, 'well…' before she continued asking the remainder of her question. From the sounds of it, I assume it is likely and very possible, especially with what I overheard yesterday. And of course, Frank himself will have to create a new graphic novel first anyway, so confirmation is mostly up to him.
