Mads Mikkelsen and Logan Lerman in the first images from The Three Musketeers
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I have mixed emotions regarding Paul W.S. Anderson’s upcoming 3D adventure THE THREE MUSKETEERS. On one hand, I’ve always wanted a quality movie of The Three Musketeers. It’s one of the few books I actually read and I always thought it would make a great movie. On the other hand, the fact that Anderson is directing it makes me nervous because what the story needs is a faithful telling, not a mashed up hodgepodge of action scenes that don’t make sense. He’s assembled a decent cast that includes Mads Mikkelsen, Logan Lerman, Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Christoph Waltz, Milla Jovovich, Juno Temple, Orlando Bloom and James Corden.
Lerman is playing D’Artagnan and if they’re going to make D’Artagnan the lead character again, then I’m a little skeptical because I’m not completely sold on Lerman’s ability to carry a film yet. I don’t mind him, but he doesn’t seem ready to be the main star. The film opens April 15th, 2011.
