I was talking some smack about the new Paul W.S. Anderson adaptation of The Three Musketeers. I may eat my own words after the casting news reported yesterday!
Let me explain:
Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Mads Mikkelsen, Logan Lerman, Christoph Waltz
Lerman (Percy Jackson) as the young, witty D'Artagnan. Stevenson (Punisher: War Zone), Evans (Clash of the Titans) and Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) are also rumored. Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) as Cardinal Richelieu?! Are you kidding me?!
The movie is still in the "rumor" phase of casting, but the 3D part we talked about last year seems to be solid.
This movie is a completely different version than the one being developed by Warner Brothers. That version of the Musketeers is rumored to be directed by Doug Liman.
I better wait to see that cast before I cast judgment again and eat my own words... AGAIN. I'm gonna keep a close eye on this one and let you know as soon as anything comes up or is confirmed!
