Cool New Photos for Paul W.S. Anderson's 'The Three Musketeers'

The Three Musketeers

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.

Here's the new photos for The Three Musketeers courtesy of ComingSoon (click for larger versions):

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.

I'll wait till I see a trailer, but not all that excited about this and I am a huge Musketeer fan.

Holy crap I love that cast. Still not certain about the director but I'll watch anything with either Ray Stevenson or Madds Mikkelson. Still wish they'd cast Stevenson as Athos to bring the character alive like Oliver Reed did, but I'm down.

I'm still confused as to why a small child with next to no talent is playing D'Artagnan.

Risk on Jan 20, 2011


That "small child" has got plenty of talent. Haven't you seen 3:10 to Yuma or Gamer?

Lamar on Jan 20, 2011


Yeah, he was great in 3:10 to Yuma, even took the spotlight off of Crowe and Bale.

Oh, Waltz, always the villain

Andersons name attached means a no go from me.

I was interested until I saw his name attached to this movie. What a pity.

...That, and the 3D.

it's good to have one's husband as a director; Ask Helena Bonham Carter But it's also cool for Jovovich as she will hone her dramatic skills in this. It looks good!

Is it being released 2012, cause you stated, "April 15th, 2011 early next summer."

ray fucking stevenson for the WIN!. rest can go the hell.

Jax is the first one to say something sensible in this thread. Paul W.S. Anderson is such a fucking FAILURE as a filmmaker. His movies are ridiculously bad, with the exception of Resident Evil, which, while being a departure from the source material was a passable movie. And on that subject, Resident Evil could have been a whole hell of a lot better in the hands of someone like Zach Snyder [see Dawn of the Dead remake (2004).]
