‘Holmes’ Producer Doing “Three Musketeers”

“Sherlock Holmes” producer Lionel Wigram is setting up a similar period-set but modern-toned update of another great literary adventure, Alexandre Dumas’ “The Three Musketeers”, at Warner Bros. Pictures says Variety.

Peter Straughan (“The Men Who Stare at Goats”) has been hired to pen an adaptation that will play up the action, humor and ‘sexier’ elements of the story.

No director or cast has yet been announced. The project is not linked with Paul W. Anderson’s 3D version of the story currently in development.
