Purefoy, Carlyle, Hoskins Are “Ironclad”

James Purefoy (HBO’s “Rome”), Robert Carlyle (“The Full Monty”), Bob Hoskins (“”) and William Moseley (“The Chronicles of Narnia”) have joined the cast of medieval action thriller “Ironclad” for ContentFilm International says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on a legendary story, “Ironclad” is set in 13th century England and tells the story of a formidable Knight Templar (Purefoy) and his “Magnificent Seven” who defended historic Rochester Castle against the tyrant, King John (Paul Giamatti), and his mercenary army.

Pete Postlethwaite, Lord Richard Attenborough, Colm Meany and Angus McFayden also star.

The film was initially to start production but got held up due to financing issues. Now it’s raring to go again with a Summer start of production planned. Rick Benattar and Andrew Curtis are producing.
