Director Paul W.S. Anderson (who brought the Resident Evil movies) is working on the Three Musketeers, a new 3D movie adaptation of the novel of the same name by French writer Alexandre Dumas. The cast of the Three Musketeers includes Milla Jovovich, Orlando Bloom, Logan Lerman, Christopher Waltz, Ray Stevenson, Matthew Macfayden, Luke Evans and Mads Mikkelsen. Shooting will start in August 2010 in Europe. The Three Musketeers movie is scheduled to be released on April, 15, 2011.
Actor Mads Mikkelsen said about the film:
Director Paul W.S. Anderson revealed a bit more later on:
Cast of the Three Musketeers Movie:
- Milla Jovovich as Milady de Winter
- Orlando Bloom as Duke of Buckingham
- Logan Lerman as D'Artagnan
- Christopher Waltz as Cardinal Richelieu
- Ray Stevenson as Porthos
- Matthew Macfayden as Athos
- Luke Evans as Aramis
- Mads Mikkelsen as Count of Rochefort
Isn't Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson) a bit too young to play as D'Artagnan? Well, he's talented, and I guess the script integrates his young age.
I guess that with this re-imagining, Director Paul W.S. Anderson will do for the Three Musketeers what Guy Ritchie successfully did for Sherlock Holmes, and it won't that difficult with such an impressive cast. I bet the Three Musketeers will be a great movie
