Julius Caesar Gets A Film Trilogy

Producers Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton are developing the first in a proposed film trilogy adaptation of Conn Iggulden’s four-book ‘The Emperor Series’ about the life of Julius Caesar reports Screen Daily.

The first book in the series, ‘The Gates of Rome’, revolves around two boys named Gaius and Marcus who grow to adulthood in Rome two millennia ago as the Republic began to fall apart and political war was being played out in the senate.

Exclusive Media Group is considering co-financing with a U.S. studio, while no director or cast is yet attached. William Broyles (“Flags of Our Fathers”) has penned the script with shooting to kick off later this year.
