BIRTH OF AN EMPIRE
CASTS MILOSH BIKOVICH AS TZAR PETER THE GREAT
After becoming pretty much a Tom Cruise type of blockbuster superstar over in good old Russia, it was rather logical that Serbian actor and panslavic star Milosh Bikovich will sooner or later get an imperial role. And now he
has! Hollywood Spy can exclusively announce that he is playing tzar Peter the Great in his younger years in new Russian historical epic movie THE BIRTH OF AN EMPIRE (Рождение империи) from director Aleksey Nuzhniy. It will cover 1698-1709 - ten years from the life of Peter the Great, during which he laid the foundations of the future Russian Empire. From the return of the great embassies from Europe to the Battle of Poltava. After the signing of a peace treaty with Sweden in 1721, Russia officially became an empire, and Peter became the first Russian emperor. The film, shot last autumn and winter, should premiere December 29th as the most beautiful New Year's present. The film will also include one of the actors from Western Europe as King Charles XII.
