Butler wants 'special' 300 sequel

Gerard Butler has said he would be open to don his gladiator outfit and sandals for the sequel to 300 - but only if it touched him.

The Scottish star, who was propelled to fame after portraying King Leonidas in Zack Snyder's fantasy film, admitted he would only say yes if it was "great".

"I would love to get involved again, but it has to be something special," he told

"Because 300 to me was such a powerful one-off experience, that there's no point in doing it again unless it's really great."

Producer Bernie Goldmann has hinted that the follow-up, with a potential director in Noam Murro, is being developed, but Gerard insisted he hasn't heard anything.

"I'm like, 'Oh there's a director now?' I've heard that I'm in the script. I've heard things, I've seen things, I've flown off the moon," he joked.

"I honestly don't know what's going on. I have to see a script and talk with them more."

Dominic West, Michael Fassbender and Lena Headey also starred in 300, which is based on the graphic novel by Frank Miller.
