Orlando Bloom Dons Floppy Hat For ‘Three Musketeers’

Monday, May 24 by

Orlando Bloom won’t be shaving that weird facial hair anytime soon. The Elizabethtown actor has been cast as the Duke of Buckingham in Paul W.S. Anderson’s Th Three Musketeers. British comedian James Corden will also join the cast as the servant Planchet.

Previously cast are Christoph Waltz, Logan Lerman, Matthew MacFadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Mads Mikkelsen, and, of course, Anderson’s wife/zombie slayer Milla Jovovich. Considering Anderson’s film resume of mostly videogame adaptations, I’m really impressed by these casting announcements. It looks like this 3D take on the classic is picking up a lot of talented actors. And Milla Jovovich. (Variety)
