Millennium Films is developing a new adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ enduring tale of “The Three Musketeers,” reports Variety.
The film will trace how swordsmen Athos, Porthos and Aramis first banded together.
D’Artagnan, the last member of the eventual quartet, will either be introduced later in the first movie or in a second installment.
The Dumas novel is in the public domain.
Millennium is also reviving the Robert E. Howard-created Conan the Barbarian and Red Sonja characters, as well as Hercules and Buck Rogers. And after its Rambo revival grossed $100 million worldwide earlier this year, Millennium is working on another installment.
