Now,this is a bit better and something new from the BBC i may actually be interested in(Joint BBC/BBC America)

Although TBH the Dick Lester films from the 70's are always Musketeer 'canon' for me Tongue

Future Doc Who star Peter Capaldi stars as Cardinal Richelieu,which sounds spot on perfect

The rest of the cast are unknown to me



The Three Musketeers is one of my favourite books,so i hope this won't piss on the book too much

Quote
Created by Adrian Hodges, The Musketeers is a new adaptation of the legendary tale of the three musketerrs. The series is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris where law and order is more an idea than reality and follows the three Musketeers: Athos, Aramis and Porthos who are far more than King Louis XIIIís personal bodyguards. They stand resolutely for social justice, for honour, for valour, for love and for the thrill of it. The drama series is being produced by BBC Drama Productions in association with BBC Worldwide & BBC America and stars Luke Pasqualino (Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome), Tom Burke (Great Expectations), Santiago Cabrera (Merlin), Howard Charles, Peter Capaldi (The Hour), Tamla Kari (Cuckoo), Maimie McCoy (Loving Miss Hatto), and Hugo Speer (Bedlam).

This first series is 10 episodes(60 minutes each)..i say first...

Not really sure when it starts,most are saying 2014 but this trailer showing new Drama on BBC is for 2013 shows

I wonder...if things go well for this series,it could even go on for quite awhile,Alexandre Dumas also wrote '20 Years After' which was based on the four of them,as well as The Vicomte of Bragelonne:10 years Later,which featured the Musketeers again(and also includes The Man in the Iron Mask)

A lot of content,but hopefully they will use the first book for now

My favorite book, but most of the movies suck, so I am hesitant to get excited. Still, I trust BBC to do something reasonably good with it (wish it was HBO though). Costumes look great if nothing else. Why isn't D'Artagnan mentioned in the write ups of this? I assume that is him in the picture.

Ill check it out, sounds entertaining.  I wonder if there is any other literary series that has been remade/rebooted in film or tv as much as the Musketeers have been.  I guess Sherlock Holmes has,  most likely.
