As a last desperate attempt to avoid bankruptcy the 300 Spartans have been recalled into action.
In the Ampitheatre above Athens the 300 will take on all comers and fight to the last man.
The Greek government hope to attract tourists from all over the planet to witness this spectacle and at $500 bucks entry it's cheap.
Over 5 million people have applied for tickets and the 300 are in training for the event slaughtering Cypriot Turks, African illegal immigrants, wild beasts and Persian carpet dealers!
The ampitheatre is sold out and the blood-thirsty spectacle will commence in June (certainly better watching than the World Cup, especially if your English and not German!).
Opponents, and wild beasts are being flown in from all over the planet, Cyclopes, Vinny Jones (their brother) Jackie Chan, Uma Thurman, are amongst them.
Sky TV have bought the TV rights ($200 million) and will send out the bloody slaughter live as it happens and Quentin Tarantino has bought the flim rights.
Evening for evening the 300 will gather and face all opponents until the last man stands
The Greek government has also called upon the Greek Gods, Hades, Poseidon and special guest Zeus to judge the contests, with thumbs up or down when called upon.
It promises to be a blood-dripping, head-rolling, limb-chopping, rip-roaring event (especially when the lions get them between their jaws!).
All proceeds will go into the Greek central bank and the pockets of their corrupt politicians!
