'BRITANNIA' EPIC SERIES
AVE! FIRST PHOTOS ARE HERE!
Years have passed since I've first announced that we will be getting a new Roman period epic series and now, after centuries of wait, we've got the first pictures from BRITANNIA epic series that will air at British Sky One and Amazon in the United States sometime later this year! Kelly Reilly, Stanley Weber and David Morrissey lead the cast of this ten part series which was shot in Wales and Czech Republic. I truly hope we get some kind of trailer soon!
BRITANNIA is set in 43 A.D. and charts the Roman invasion of what would become Great Britain. The determined, yet terrified, Roman Imperial Army returns to crush the Celtic heart of Britannia, a mysterious land ruled by wild warrior women and powerful druids who can channel the forces of the underworld. Kelly Reilly and Zoe Wanamaker play arch-rivals Kerra and Antedia who must set aside their differences to combat the invasion, led by the towering figure of Aulus Plautius (Morrissey). Hugo Speer, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Stanley Weber, Eleanor Worthington Cox and Ian McDiarmid also star! Our dear Trevor Morris is writing the music!
