Three Musketeers gets a cast that may include Orlando Bloom
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Shooting begins in September for THE THREE MUSKETEERS and casting is still in the works. So far director Paul W.S. Anderson has rounded up a decent cast which includes: Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans and Matthew Macfadyen. These three will play the musketeers Porthos, Athos and Aramis respectively and actor Logan Lerman is in the final rounds of negotiation to play the young D’Artagnan. The villians have also been set: Christoph Waltz will be playing Cardinal Richelieu, Mads Mikkelsen will be Rochefort and Milla Jovovich is Milady de Winter and “an offer is out” to Orlando Bloom to play the Duke of Buckingham. Anderson will be bring THE THREE MUSKETEERS to us in 3D and with a more modern feel to it. I hope Anderson doesn’t go too modern, we really don’t want another A KNIGHT’S TALE on our hands. I don’t think I could take another joust or battle to Queen’s We Will Rock You.
And yes, I know Bloom isn’t confirmed for this film but I can’t help myself.
