Juno Temple joins the cast of Paul W.S. Anderson’s THE MUSKETEERS
Just to be clear, this is not the Doug Liman-directed version of the classic tale we reported on back in April. This retelling, directed by RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE director Paul W.S. Anderson, is destined to hit theaters first.
Rising star Juno Temple has just been added to an already impressive cast of Hollywood notables in this latest production of THE THREE MUSKETEERS. Milla Jovavich, Ray Stevenson, and Mads Mikkelsen are featured in the swashbuckler, but the real surprise addition to THE THREE MUSKETEERS is Christolph Waltz, who just won an Academy Award for his brilliant portrayal of Hans Landa in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. Let the Oscar curse begin!
Relative newcomer Temple has been seen in some high profile films already, from a slave girl in YEAR ONE to the recent indie hit GREENBERG. In THE THREE MUSKETEERS, Temple will command our three heroes to wield their swords for good in the name of the royal court. Isn't she a little young to rule? On the other hand, the teen girl tweener brigade needs someone to look up to, right?
This is Anderson's first attempt at a period piece, but it's doubtful that the film will be historically accurate. In reality, Anderson will trade facts for giant explosions, which honestly might be what this story needs. After all, we've seen countless adaptations of the legend in the past. Maybe this won't be the most faithful to the real story, but it might be the most fun.
