A few weeks ago, I gave you a long list of young actors (Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylo Kitsch, Kellan Lutz, Tobey Maguire,  Shia LaBeouf) who could take the lead role in THE BOURNE LEGACY (which probably won't have Matt Damon, who apparently isn't happy with being kicked aside by some younger actor), but now there are new names in the game. Actors invited for the screen testing to be held in a few weeks in USA include names such as Luke Evans, Joel Edgerton, Garrett Hedlund and Dominic Cooper. The whole film is coming to cinemas in summer 2012 directed by Tony Gilroy.

SHORT HEADLINES *Breck Eisner will direct BLOOD OF THE INNOCENT, a Victorian horror adventure in which Dracula has a nasty clash with Jack The Ripper on the streets of 19th century London.
The film is based on a comic book. *Talented director Tom Hooper, Academy Award winner this year for THE KING'S SPEECH might do a film adaptation of LES MISERABLES as his next project. The famous Victor Hugo novel could be done in the form of a musical.

And here it is finally, the first trailer for Paul W. S. Anderson's THE THREE MUSKETEERS. With quite a big cast including Logan Lerman, Christoph Waltz, Orlando Bloom, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Matthew Macfadyen, Mads Mikkelsen, Milla Jovovich ... the film premieres this October. In the 3D updated film adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ classic adventure the hot-headed young D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman)
joins forces with three rogue Musketeers (Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson). They must stop the evil Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz) and face off with lord Buckingham (Orlando Bloom) and the treacherous Milady De Winter (Milla Jovovich).


  1. I don’t know what is happening, but when I try to play that trailer my browser crashes. I’ll have to try again later.

  2. everything is fine with the trailer, Holly, it must be your computer. Hope you'll manage to see it, I wasn't excited about the film until I saw the great trailer.

  3. Guess I missed the news about Matt Damon being replaced as Bourne. That's not good. Not good.

  4. well, it's time for new boys to take on the job :)

  5. Before I watched the trailer I was planning on teasing you and saying "Ha! False advertising! That trailer didn't blow my mind!" ... but it did. Darn!

  6. Again, thank you for keeping us updated! I always know where to go when I want to go out to the movies! *GRIN*

    Enjoy your weekend.

  7. I doubt I'll like it in 3D, but I know I'll like it. Loved the scene with her skidding on her knees and the dress billowing out around her.

    I really can't see Toby McGuire as Bourne; but who knows. Stranger things have been known to work.


  8. Damon no longer as Bourne ain't all bad. He had a good run and gave us some nice films (ultimatum was my favorite).

  9. I've always been a fan of McFayden and can't wait to see him in this movie!

  10. Dracula versus Jack the Ripper???
    This sounds incredible!

    And I absolutely worship Milla Jovovich.

  11. It's Dumas, steampunk style. A fun film that makes no pretense whatsoever about historical accuracy. Ladies could have never moved like that in 17th century dresses. ;) I can't wait to see it.

    Dracula and Jack, I'm there. Like all on the new Bourne list, but Garrett.

  12. Not too impressed by the Captain America trailer. y

  13. Kind of happy about The Three Musketeers. The trailer looked pretty good!! I adore Milla Jovovich she is so beautiful!! : )

  14. The Three Muskies Steampunk looks amazing - but enough with the 3D already.

  15. @Lyndy
    that was my reaction as well, darling. I thought I wouldn't like it, since I've seen the story countless times and plus I don't like Mila, but they really did put a lot of stunning scenes in it!

    thank you, Liz, glad to keep you informed ;)

    there really were a lot of cool scenes in the trailer, I wasn't expecting so many of them!
    Yep, Tobey would be a bit weird, but as you said, we shall wait and see :)

  16. @Matty
    he he ... I know you love Damon unlike me, so I mention him from time to time just to indulge you :)

    ooooh, we love McFadyen too... such a charming and kind actor!

    he he it's totally your cup of tea :)))I shall tell Milla that she has a worshiper.

  17. @Melsy
    it's true, it does look steampunk and totally historically inaccurate, but that's what makes it so cool I guess :) I'm not sure that even gents were able to run and move in those frilly outfits and boots, not to mention the ladies in their crinolines and ball gowns :) Garrett hasn't earned my love too, yet, I didn't like him in ERAGON, and he was nothing special in TRON, so he still has to amaze me.

    ah, sorry to hear that, hope you'll like MUSKETEERS trailers better

  18. @Nicole
    the trailer really was great, wasn't it? One of the very few trailers which managed to surprise me this year.

    not sure they will quit 3D any time soon, you should get used to it :)))

    glad you like it, Summer ;)

  19. Bourne Legacy without Damon? Not sure I'll like it!

    Cool trailer, lots of action...Pirates of the Caribbean style. Looks like fun!

  20. glad you like the trailer, Summer ;)

  21. A BOURNE MOVIE WITHOUT MATT DAMON???? My entire day is thrown out of orbit with how WRONG that is. WRONG WRONG WRONG! I may never recover.

    (but you almost make up for it with that awesome trailer. almost.)

  22. I don't know how I feel about this .. I think they did an excellent job with the first Musketeers movie, and I don't know how they could try to tell the same story and still make it interesting to watch again. But who knows, maybe it will blow my mind :)

  23. Milla Jovovich in an old classic, can't wait to see it.
    Okay, I can see why they don't take Matt Damon, but why adding so many lads to the list. What is taking them so long to make a decision.

  24. @Terry
    he he he ... why so sad, Terry, it's not like he's some great actor or something :P

    which first film, there were at least a dozen of MUSKETEER flicks :)This might look great since we now have some very modern special effects and technology.

    well, the want to find an actor who will be able to carry the whole franchise, it won't be just one film.

  25. I'm coming back to watch the trailer when I really have time to savor it...will probably bring chocolate with me. Will miss Damon in BOURNE!

  26. don't be selfish and bring some chocolate for Dezzy too ;)

  27. I don't know if even Matthew Macfayden will get me to watch The Three Musketeers...

  28. I wasn't into the film at all either, until I saw the trailer which totally surprised me, it's really refreshing and exciting.

  29. I never really liked the Three Muskateers, but that trailer looks pretty badass. Swashbuckling seems to be the way forward :P

  30. I totally agree with you, Jamie!

  31. Hello Dezmond :)
    I just saw this 3Musk Trailer and my question is who made this movie? Guy Ritchie? Well only his Sherlock Holmes is punching somebody.

  32. Jonia, as it says in the post, the film is directed by Paul W. S. Anderson :)

  33. Paul W.S. Anderson yeh... No plot and even grandma can shoot. What's happend with cinema today? Where are movies like To Kill a Mockingbird or Citizen Kane or The Graduate or Midnight Cowboy? Where is something more? :/
    Hugs Dezz.

    I'm sorry I have bad day today and I'm hungry :/

  34. Ok I'm not hungry :) but still I can't see plot in 3Musk.

  35. well, maybe there will be some plot, we have to wait and see.
    Hope you ate something in the meantime ;)
