So it seems the newest incarnation of the Three Musketeers will fuse the producer of Sherlock Holmes with the writer of the Men Who Stare At Goats. At least thatâ€™s what Variety is saying. They wouldnâ€™t lie to me, would they?
Oh, an apparently they are going to â€œupdate Dumas’ swashbuckling tale to appeal to young, contemporary [audiences].â€
Did they learn nothing from Teenage Mutant Ninja Musketeers?
Of course, Iâ€™m of the mind that no further adaptations need be done since Richard Lester made the perfect one in the form of two movies. If you have money to throw around, letâ€™s get better transfers and clean those movies up so we have as pristine a copy as possible, with commentary from everyone even tangently involved in the production.
But thatâ€™s just me. And if you donâ€™t agree, well, Iâ€™m sorry, but youâ€™re just wrong.
