CLASH OF THE MUSKETEERS!

We all know that Hollywood can sometimes act real crazy, but this time it seems the studios have lost their sense. We have already mentioned that two different projects on Musketeers are in preproduction. But now it seems we will witness the clash of the Musketeers. Both Warner Bros. and Summit Entertainment have decided to release their adaptations of the popular Alexander Dumas story in 2011. Warner Bros. has apparently offered director Doug Liman to helm their "The Three Musketeers" adventure. To heat up the war of the studios Paul W.S. Anderson will on the other side direct "The Three Musketeers" film for Summit Entertainment, and his project is planned as a 3D movie. Off course it is not unlikely that Doug Liman will shoot his film in 3D as well.
And we shall be a collateral damage in this clash, forced to watch too many movies about immature men leading sward battles with feathers on their hats and frilly lace around their collars.

  1. These kinds of movies travel in pairs - like two volcano movies in one year or two asteroid films in one year.
    How many Three Musketeers movies are out there, Dez?

  2. Well, I remember the one with Chris O'Donnel, the one with Gene Kelly, the one with Michael York, and a naughty one as well ^_^

  3. Doug Liman = acceptable.

    Paul W.S. Anderson = go live in a hole, we're done with you (but leave us Milla!)

    As for this. It's been my experience even the best of the Musketeer movies are passably good. Of course we're all still trying to get the taste out of our mouth from the painfully bad The Musketeer a few years back.

  4. I still don't understand why we will get two 3 musketeers movie released pretty much simultaneously. WTF is going on?!?!?!?

  5. I'm still not convinced that there will be two new versions of the Three Musketeers. Remember all that talk about two films about Alexander of Macedonia?

    Only when the principal photography starts we can be sure of that.
