Anderson's "Three Musketeers" adds two more to the growing cast

Paul WS Anderson's new adaptation of the Dumas classic has added more star power to it's cast.
As some of you may already know, "Resident Evil: Afterlife" director Paul WS Anderson will be heading up a new version of the Alexandre Dumas classic "The Three Musketeers" later this year for Constantin Film, Impact Pictures and Summit Entertainment. This will be the first adaptation of the novel that will be in 3D however.

The story follows d’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) as he leaves home to join the elite fighting force of the King's house. Along the journey, he befriends some of the best members of the musketeers: Athos (Luke Evans), Porthos (Ray Stevenson) and Aramis (Matthew Macfadyen) all of whom have fallen into disgrace and have been banished from the King's group.

Orlando Bloom has just signed on to play the Duke of Buckingam, while James Corden of "Doctor Who" fame will be playing the servant Planchet. Along with this group, Anderson has locked in Milla Jovovich, Mads Mikkelsen and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz to play Milady de Winter, Rochefort and Cardinal Richelieu respectively.

"The Three Musketeers" is set for filming this fall once Anderson finishes "Resident Evil: Afterlife" and will be releases summer of 2011.

ecksmanfan: I'm a big fan of "Three Musketeers" films, yes even the Disney versio with Charlie Sheen, Keifer Sutherland and Tim Curry. With the addition of Mikkelsen and Waltz, this could be a great film. Anderson has set up a great and eclectic group of actors, so I'm excited to see how this turns out.
