Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel, The Three Musketeers, is set to be adapted into another big screen adventure. The literary classic has been adapted several times into film, some great, some forgetful.
The latest take on the story will see the book adapted into two films. According to a report in Variety, Martin Bourboulon will helm The Three Musketeers – D’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers. That project will star Eva Green, Vincent Cassel, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.
The two-part project will be shot back-to-back in France this summer. According to reports, the adaptation will introduce a new character, Hannibal, to the fold. The character is based on the true story of Louis Anniaba, the first Black musketeer in French history.
The latest version of The Three Musketeers follows several adaptations of Dumas’ book. Hollywood adapted the book in 1921 starring Douglas Fairbanks and in 1948 with Gene Kelly and Lana Turner. Subsequent films such as the 1993 classic adventure starring Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen and Chris O’Donnell.
The Three Musketeers – D’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers does not have a release date at the moment.
