Warner Bros. is looking to make an epic Roman Empire versus Han Dynasty film called The Last Legion. The movie is being written by Kurt Johnstad who is the same guy that wrote 300 and the upcoming sequel 300: Rise of an Empire.
I guess the studio felt they need another high testosterone period war film. The film will tell the story about the "first encounter between two of the most powerful forces in the history of civilization, the Roman Empire and the Han Dynasty of ancient China. In 53 BC, a Roman legion was defeated in the Middle East and the surviving Roman soldiers were sold into slavery in the far east, North of China in what is now known as Mongolia. An intrepid band of Chinese warriors freed the legionnaires from captivity, and teamed up to defend China from the fiercest army in history."
Sounds like it will be a pretty freakin awesome movie! I'll be lookig forward to seeing how this movie comes together.
