Paul Giamatti Is King In “Ironclad”

Paul Giamatti is set to play the tyrannical King John in the medieval action film “Ironclad” for Variety.

The story follows one of the Knights Templar (James Purefoy) and his “Magnificent Seven” cohorts who defend Rochester Castle against King John and his army in 13th century England.

Erick Kastel and English penned the script with Jonathan English (“Minotaur”) set to direct.

Rick Benattar and Andrew Curtis will produce while shooting begins next month in Wales.
