Bear Grylls, famous for his work eating bugs on Man vs. Wild, is getting into the feature film business. Grylls will produce a new The Count of Monte Cristo movie, based on the classic novel by Alexandre Dumas. But this adaptation has a twist: it’s set in modern-day Afghanistan. Count of Monte Cristo has been adapted to the screen several times before, and recently, David Goyer was attached to write a version that was being touted as a “19th century Dark Knight,” but that project never came together.
