Alexandre Dumas‘ 1844 novel The Three Musketeers is a literary traditional that has endured through the years, and now there are two new films within the works abroad that includes a number of high-profile European stars.
Variety reviews that Martin Bourboulon (Eiffel) will direct The Three Musketeers – D’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers – Milady, which can star François Civil as D’Artagnan and Eva Inexperienced as Milady. The remainder of the solid consists of Vincent Cassel as Athos, Pio Marmaï as Porthos, Romain Duris as Aramis, Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread) as Queen Anne of Austria, Louis Garrel as King Louis XIII, Lyna Khoudri (The French Dispatch) as Constance Bonacieux, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Invisible Man) because the Duke of Buckingham.
Matthieu Delaporte and Alexandre de la Patellière wrote the script for each movies primarily based on Dumas’ French traditional, and the movies will likely be produced by Chapter 2 CEO Dimitri Rassam (The Little Prince) and Pathé, whereas M6 will function a co-producer on the challenge together with Germany’s Constantin Movie and Spain’s DeAPlaneta. The bold two-part adaptation is budgeted at round $73 million, and the brand new Three Musketeers movies will likely be shot back-to-back on the finish of this summer season in France. Further casting will likely be unveiled within the coming weeks.
This adaptation will even introduce a brand new character, Hannibal, primarily based on the true story of Louis Anniaba, the primary Black musketeer in French historical past. Rassam informed Selection that the challenge will base all characters on present historic figures simply as Dumas did, and also will be together with new characters comparable to Hannibal to counterpoint the writer’s “extraordinary” canvas in an natural approach.
“We really feel an excessive amount of duty to guard the work of Dumas while providing an genuine and thrilling cinematic saga for immediately’s audiences,” stated Rassam, who is taken into account certainly one of France’s high producers.

Pay attention, the sort of old style, swashbuckling heroism present in The Three Musketeers has by no means actually been for me, however there is a motive this story has endured for so long as it has, and there isn’t any query that Pathé has lined up a proficient solid for these big-budget films. Maybe they will shock me, however one factor is for positive –there’s no approach they’re gonna high Bryan Adams‘ energy ballad “All for Love” from the 1993 model. In the meantime, remember in regards to the Three Musketeers film starring Luke Evans, Matthew Macfadyen and Ray Stevenson, who spoke to Collider nearly a decade ago about their interval challenge.
It has to do with grief.
