Anderson’s ‘Musketeers’ adds to cast

Christoph Waltz among thesps joining 3D project

With a pair of dueling “Three Musketeers” projects headed for fall starts, Paul W.S. Anderson’s version has tapped Christoph Waltz, Logan Lerman, Ray Stevenson, Milla Jovovich, Luke Evans and Madds Mikkelsen for key roles.

Anderson is producing and directing a 3D version of the classic tale, with shooting slated to begin in September. Anderson co-wrote the script with Andrew Davies.

Impact Pictures’ Jeremy Bolt and Constantin Film’s Robert Kulzer are producing with Constantin financing. Summit’s distributing domestically and handling foreign sales.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros. signed Doug Liman last week to direct its version of Alexandre Dumas’ adventure tale, which is being fast-tracked for a fall production start. “The Three Musketeers” centers on the impetuous D’Artagnan as he joins forces with three veteran musketeers — Athos, Porthos and Aramis — to battle the evil Cardinal Richelieu.

Waltz will portray Richelieu and is expected to be shooting on a compressed schedule, as he’s also signed for “Water for Elephants.” He’s also in “The Green Hornet.”

Lerman (“Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief”) is in talks to portray D’Artagnan. Stevenson (“Rome”) has been cast as Porthos and Evans (“Clash of the Titans,” “Immortals”) as Aramis.

Mikkelsen (“Clash of the Titans”) will portray the villainous Comte de Rochefort, and Jovovich will play the spy Milady de Winter.
