The Three Musketeers

I'm not really that excited to feature these photos, mainly because it's for a Paul W.S. Anderson movie, and he doesn't usually make great movies. That said, ComingSoon has debuted a couple of interesting first look photos for Anderson's new take on The Three Musketeers, which is currently being shot in 3D for release next summer. The best photos are of Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen as bad guy Rochefort (wearing an eye patch, too). You can also see a boring shot of Logan Lerman as D'Artagnan and Anderson in plain clothes on the set on ComingSoon, if you're interested, but I didn't think those were worth being posted. Check it out!

Mads Mikkelsen in Paul W.S. Anderson's The Three Musketeers

The Three Musketeers, which is being shot in 3D as we speak, is being directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (of Resident Evil, Death Race) with a script adapted from Alexandre Dumas' novel by Andrew Davies & Alex Litvak (Predators). Summit Entertainment has already set this for release on April 15th, 2011 early next summer. In addition to Mikkelsen and Lerman, The Three Musketeers stars Orlando Bloom as the Duke of Buckingham, Christoph Waltz as Cardinal Richelieu; Matthew MacFadyen, Ray Stevenson and Luke Evans as Athos, Porthos and Aramis, respectively; and also Milla Jovovich as M'lady De Winter.

    My favorite classic! I knew we were due for another one. Someone makes a new one every 8 yrs or so. Looks great.
  • Brandon

    as long as he pronounces it the name as it's spelled (D'Artagnan)... I can't shake Chris O'Donnel's "I am Dar-tan-yinn and i wish to join the musketeers!" "Cause it's ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL for one, all for lu-uhhhuhh-ve" <-- HA!!

    Richard Lesters 3/4 Musketeers are two of my favorite movies of all time. I grew up on those movies, so this story is one I love dearly. As long as its better than the shitfest that was THE MUSKETEER and at LEAST as good as the Disney one (it is Paul W.S. Anderson after all) I'll be ok. If its better I'll be ecstatic! Especially with this cast. I'm not a huge fan of the kid, but Madds Mikkelson and Ray Stevenson in one movie? KICKASS!
  • Xerxex
    Madds looks awesome!
  • GLupe
    Lerman looks retarded with that hair and outfit.
  • Julie

  • Sabes
    He's a sexy man.
  • cyn
    Marry me Mads!
  • Shige
    Wait, 3D ? So they are focusing on some cheap CGI and ridiculous fighting again. The three musketeers is all about the STORY. Not the action. When will they ever get that.
  • Nisse
    Great cast, crappy director.
  • Jaf
    Damn I want his jacket and his boots for halloween
  • Iggypop
    oh come on bashers! did resident evil really sucked? looking forward to see this with a much serious tone. though i love platt, sutherland and sheen from the first TTM...
  • Orlando Blooms Pubes For Hair
    Does each director have to mess with Rochefort eye in each movie he plays in?
  • trey m
    all for 1...and 1 for...fuck it!
  • john
    It seems that Mads Mikkelsen likes to play characters that have eye problems (Casino Royale, Valhalla Rising and now this movie)...
  • MLD
    The outfit looks like a Halloween costume I can buy at Wal-Mart. How crappy of a costume. Thats all I got to say.
  • JL
    @19 MLD, Took the words right out of my mouth. Whoever the hell does the costumes in Anderson's movies should stop trying to bring their own flair to it, or half-ass it, and do some studying and hard work. If you're going to make a movie set in a particular period, you should try and make the costumes as authentic to that period as possible. Some of my favorite epic/period pieces were so good visually, because they were immersive. Great costumes, great sets, awesome locations (Dances with Wolves, Gladiator, etc. etc.) 'Nuff said.
