New Year's wishes for a 'Gates of Fire' movie

It seems that there is a division between the readers of Steven Pressfield's 'Gates of Fire' and Frank Miller's '300'. More readers would rather see 'Gates of Fire' made into a movie rather than '300', however, I feel there isn't any reason why two movies depicting the same event can't be filmed. My hope is that it won't take another 40 years like it did after 'The 300 Spartans' was released!

This is why I believe that if the readers who prefer 'GoF' over '300' see the Frank Miller version, Maysville Pictures who own the rights to the Pressfield book will take a close look at the returns. If '300' is profitable, their rationale will be why not make another version of the battle?
