Geek Peek: First Images Of Paul W.S. Anderson’s ‘Three Musketeers’
  |  @   |  

A few new images from the set of Paul W.S. Anderson‘s new adaptation of The Three Musketeers have shown up online.

The pictures show Mads Mikkelsen (King Arthur, Casino Royale) as Rochefort, and Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief star and former Spider-Man candidate Logan Lerman as the lead, D’Artagnan. It’s not the best peek at Lerman, but as you’ll see, Mikkelsen looks pretty awesome.

We first heard about the movie last September when it was announced that Anderson would be directing his own 3D adaptation of the classic Alexandre Dumas story.

‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ Star Orlando Bloom Confirmed For ‘The Three Musketeers’
  |  @   |  

On May 11th, a massive casting announcement was made regarding the Paul W.S. Anderson adaptation of the Alexandre Dumas classic The Three Musketeers (Read: Woah Now! “˜Three Musketeers’ Casts Christoph Waltz, Milla Jovovich, Logan Lerman & Many More). In that epic cast reveal, it was noted that Orlando Bloom had been offered a role as well.

Now comes word that Bloom has indeed accepted the offer and will be in the film. The actor will actually play a villain in the very smooth Duke of Buckingham, who intensely-rivals the Musketeers and their rebellious ways.

Also new to the cast is James Corden (Planet 51, Gulliver’s Travels), who will be playing a servant named Planchet.

‘Three Musketeers’ Movie Gets Writer; Will Use ‘Sherlock Holmes’ Strategy
  |  @   |  

Back in June of 2008, we discovered that a new movie was being developed based on the 1844 Alexandre Dumas classic, The Three Musketeers. At the time, not too much was known about the project, and as you can tell, it has been a while since any updates have been offered.

Now, with the title set up and cozy at Warner Brothers, it looks like things are about to set sail. The studio has Producer Lionel Wigram in place, and Peter Straughan has been hired to write the screenplay.

Wigram has done a lot of work with Warner Bros. over the years; he’s had a big hand in the success of the Harry Potter franchise, and was a producer on both Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince. He was also a writer and producer on Guy Ritchie’s new take on Sherlock Holmes, which is crucial because that’s exactly where they want to go with this new Three Musketeers adventure. The hopes and plans are to make it fun and exciting to appeal to younger audiences, and to hopefully score another big franchise out of it.
