3 NEW KNIGHTS TEMPLAR EPIC TV SERIES 'KNIGHTFALL' AND 'KNIGHTS TEMPLAR' AT HISTORY, 'THE CRUSADERS' AT SPIKE TV! 'VERONA' TO REIMAGINE 'ROMEO & JULIET' IN '300' EPIC STYLE

THREE NEW EPIC TV SERIES
ON FAMED KNIGHTS TEMPLAR
Yet, another one in the whole line of upcoming series which will follow Knights Templar is KNIGHTFALL! History will make scripted series produced by Jeremy Renner and as 'Deadline' reports it will chronicle the actual events leading up to and following the persecution, downfall and burning at the stake of the Knights Templar on Friday the 13th, 1307. More than 700 years later, Friday the 13th is known as a cursed day because of this event.
CRUSA- DERS AND TEMPLARS
 I also informed you last summer that Spike TV will produce mini TV series  THE CRUSADERS  set during the Third Crusade, after the fall of Jerusalem to Saladin’s armies, which will follow two very different knights who journey from Scotland to the Holy Land for very different reasons. History has also announced previously their work on KNIGHTS TEMPLAR focusing on their origins. That one will bring the true story of three brothers, all knights, during the first Crusade, as they make the long journey through the Holy Lands to recapture Jerusalem, ultimately bringing rise to the Knights Templar. I'm not sure if that project is still on.

'VERONA' EPIC MOVIE TO
GIVE 'ROMEO AND JULIET' A '300' STYLE REIMAGINATION
Speaking of historical projects, here's one with an unexpected twist: William Shakespeare's ROMEO AND JULIET will get a 300 re-imagining  since Sony Pictures has bought the VERONA script from Neil Widener and Gavin James. With VERONA as the famed town in which the star crossed lovers fell in love with each other and died, the movie re-imagines the love story, set in a world similar to Zack Snyder's stylized action epic 300. The movie will be produced by Joe Roth who is currently working on THE HUNTSMAN and ALICE IN WONDERLAND II! As you might remember the latest ROMEO AND JULIET movie was two years ago and it was dreadfully uninspired even though it had a stunning cast lead by Douglas Bouth, Damien Lewis, Hailee Steinfeld and Tom Wisdom!

    6. gee..men in tights..is sure a sight...I am a romantic so I like the Romeo and Juliet saga, but do I really want to see yet another version. I think we need new star crossed lovers..you know she traveled through time to find him the love of her life then something tragic happens..he dies in her arms and with his last breath he says he will find her again..haha..the endless circle of time..
