PATHE TO MAKE EPIC SERIES
ON NAPOLEON,BLACK MUSKETEER
Most glorious of news, people! Our favourite movie studio Pathe is launching its TV branch and has already set ambitious first projects. To be headed by Aude Albano who gave us Versailles, their first series will mostly
include large scale period drama revolving around iconic French figures, as Variety reports. Jean François Richet is already preparing for them a series on NAPOLEON, the first episode has apparently already been written with the help of Thierry Lentz, who heads the Napoleon Foundation in Paris and has written several books about him. Meanwhile, Matthieu Delaporte and Alexandre de la Patelliere (who are also behind Pathé’ $73 million two part movie adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel The Three Musketeers) are creating THE BLACK MUSKETEER series inspired by the epic true story of the first Black Musketeer in French history, Louis Aniaba. The show will follow the adventures of this lesser known, yet truly heroic character who will be also be portrayed in the two-part film adaptation with Vincent Cassel, Romain Duris and Eva Green. Next two years Pathe plans to produce several upscale series of high quality.
