I don't know if he has all his Musketeers just yet, but Paul W.S. Anderson has begun casting key roles for his upcoming version of Three Musketeers.
Three Musketeers Starts Casting
Christoph Waltz, Logan Lerman, Ray Stevenson, Milla Jovovich, Luke Evans and Madds Mikkelsen have been cast for the film. Anderson is directing Three Musketeers off a script he wrote with Andrew Davies.
Being made for 3D, the film centers on the impetuous D'Artagnan as he joins forces with three veteran musketeers -- Athos, Porthos and Aramis -- to battle the evil Cardinal Richelieu.
Waltz will portray Richelieu while Lerman is in talks to portray D'Artagnan. Stevenson has been cast as Porthos and Evans as Aramis. Mikkelsen will portray the villainous Comte de Rochefort, and Jovovich will play the spy Milady de Winter. Production is expected to begin in September.
