Every time we post something on Paul W.S. Anderson’s 3D reinvention of Alexandre Dumas’ classic swords and moustaches masterpiece The Three Musketeers there is a small pang of sadness that Hollywood hasn’t yet seized on the obvious big screen adaptaion of Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds, if only for the Moby reworking of the theme song.
Yet this serving of Resident Evil in Corsets is almost upon us and there’s a new TV spot and poster out which emboldeneds the view that Anderson and Co. are hoping for a Sherlock Holmes style reinvention of a literary classic.
Anderson’s trump card may lay in his cast, with Christoph Waltz looking likely to walk all over the rest of the mob* yet there’s one too many lingering shots of Milla Jovovich leaping through the air, engaging in some crazy swordplay for my liking.
Anyhoo, this may very well be the best adaptation of the tale ever, still – it’s no Dogtanian.
