Doug Liman to Direct The Three Musketeers

The Three Musketeers

A couple months back, we told you that producer Lionel Wigram, a former Warner Bros creative executive who oversaw the first three Harry Potter films and went out to create/pitch/write Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes, was developing an adaptation of Alexandre Dumas‘ classic 17th-century adventure novel The Three Musketeers. Then last month we learned which filmmakers Warner Bros was courting for the project.

  • David Frankel, the director of the big screen adaptations of Marley & Me and The Devil Wears Prada.
  • Doug Liman, the director of Swingers, The Bourne Identity, Mr. And Mrs. Smith and Jumper

Heat Vision now reports that the project has been offered to Liman. We’ve also learned that this adaptation will also likely be shot or converted into 3D.

The Three Musketeers

Producer Lionel Wigram, a former Warner Bros creative executive who oversaw the first three Harry Potter films and went out to create/pitch/write Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes, has hired screenwriter Peter Straughan (The Men Who Stare at Goats) to adapt Alexandre Dumas‘ classic 17th-century adventure novel The Three Musketeers. The plan is to update the story to appeal to young, contemporary audiences, playing up the action/sexier elements. This project should not be confused with Paul W.S. Anderson’s planned 3D adaptation of the Three Musketeers. No director or cast has been attached to the project.

I’ve never really liked The Three Musketeers, and I’ve never really enjoyed any of the films in the swashbuckling action film genre. Can Wigram make The Three Musketeers cool again? Do you care?
