MTV caught up with 300 director Zack Snyder, who spoke about his next film, Watchmen, which is based on the comic book series.

Here is what Snyder had to say, including having a desire to bring back 300 star, Gerard Butler, into the film:

"Yeah, we'll find a spot for him," Snyder told us on the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards. "They'll let him [off the other sets for a while]; he's not gonna get out that easy."

The red-hot director, intent on using his newfound Hollywood clout to stay true to Alan Moore's refreshingly dark comic classic, also offered a promising non-denial regarding rumors that names like Jude Law, Keanu Reeves and Patrick Wilson had been offered roles. "Um - you know what? I would say 'No,' but then you'd call me later and go like, 'Dude, what are you doing?' " Snyder laughed. "I don't know who's leaking this stuff, but they're good."
