Wigram has already brought on The Men Who Stare at Goats screenwriter Peter Straughan to update Dumas' swashbuckling tale to appeal to young, contemporary audiences.
Straughan's script will play up the action and sexier elements of the story much the same way that Wigram, who co-wrote and produced Sherlock Holmes, reimagined the detective as a bare-knuckle boxing, martial-arts savvy sleuth molded by Robert Downey Jr.
The story follows D'Artagnan as he joins forces with three veteran musketeers to stop the evil machinations of the villainous Cardinal Richelieu. So maybe this time around they will make The Three Musketeers a team of underground martial arts experts who have studied samurai sword fighting.
Wigram is a former Warners creative executive who oversaw the first three Harry Potter movies. He now has a first-look deal with the studio, and has set the project up at Warner Bros. There is no director attached to the project yet.
So sometime here in the future we're all going to be Three Musketeered out. Thoughts?
