While an all-new take on The Three Musketeers in 3D sounded like fun, we weren't thrilled when Paul W.S. Anderson was hired to sit in the director's chair. However, a decent cast combined with a couple promising first looks has made me a little more optimistic. Now two more photos have just cropped up showing some of our characters in action. The more contemporary re-imagining of Alexander Dumas' classic story follows the hot-headed young D'Artagnan who joins forces with three veteran Musketeers to prevent the villainous Cardinal Richelieu from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war.

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.
