There are some groups whose names are so iconic, you just recognize them.
Robin Hood and his Merry Men, King Arthur and his Round Table, the Avengers, the Justice League, all groups of people fighting for what’s right.
And, of course, there are the Musketeers.
It’s about time we give this story another shot in film, isn’t it?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has picked up a pitch from Harrison Query (Warparty) for what is described as a “modern take” on the The Three Musketeers. This modern take will, reportedly, have a Mission Impossible tone to it.
The project will be produced by Eric Newman and Bryan Unkeless, who produced Bright, along with Scott Glassgold.
Created by author Alexandre Dumas in 1844, this classic adventure novel follows the exploits of three members of the elite Musketeers of the Guard to the King. Athos, Porthos, and Aramis are the titular Muskeeters, but there is a fourth d’Artagnan, who has a letter of introduction but cannot be inducted into the group right away.
Query has also penned Warparty for Netflix, which will star Tom Hardy with Andrew Dominik directing and co-writing. Ridley Scott will produce that project.
There’s currently no release for the project.
