The Musketeers: First Look

The-Musketeers-2013-cast

With filming well underway for the forthcoming BBC One drama, The Musketeers, the first official image of the cast together has been released.

Written by Adrian Hodges, the series charts the fortunes of The Musketeers, an elite band of soldiers operating in 17th century Paris. D’Artagnan (Luke Pasqualino), Athos (Tom Burke), Aramis (Santiago Cabrera) and Porthos (Howard Charles) fight for what is just, and are heroes in the truest and most abiding sense – men we can trust and believe in to do the right thing, regardless of personal risk.

Adrian Hodges, creator of the series, said: “The four actors look brilliant together and it seems like they have been working together for years. The camaraderie between them makes each action-packed scene exciting and authentic, and the image we have released today really encapsulates that.”

The accomplished cast also includes Peter Capaldi, Tamla Kari, Maimie McCoy and Hugo Speer.

The 10-part drama (10×60-minute) for transmission in 2014 is a BBC Drama Production for BBC One, co-produced by BBC WorldWide and BBC America.

Jessica Pope is the BBC executive producer, Adrian Hodges is an executive producer and lead writer, and Colin Wratten is producer.

            Gee, take a joke, I only referred to them as 3 Musketeers because such is the name of the book.

            I was, er, being sarcastic. Responding to sarcasm with sarcasm…

    As long as it’s better than that horrendous 3D movie that came out a few years ago, then it’s bound to be at least worth watching. On a side note, Peter Capaldi as Cardinal Richeliu is nearly perfect casting.

    Hope if BBC America is producing it, it will be shown in the US — hope hope!
    Also hope it is as good as the one done way back in the 70’s (?) with Richard Chamberlain as Aramis; Raquel Welch was in it too. That movie was funny and a classic. I think I’m going to have to buy it on amazon……

    Has anyone ever read the classic by Dumas? It is actually a really good read.
