Zack Snyder likes the idea of making a video game and a movie that are "organically linked."
He has accomplished that to some extent with "300," the Warner Bros. Pictures movie that he wrote and directed, and with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's "300: March to Glory," a PlayStation Portable-exclusive game he helped develop. But he knows more can be done.
Like a growing number of Hollywood directors, Snyder spends his free time playing games on Xbox 360. In addition to such action games as "Gears of War" and "Call of Duty 3," he appreciates the cinematic influences in interactive entertainment.
