DeAPlaneta Entertainment released first-look photos of the awaited blockbuster The Three Musketeers, produced by Dimitri Rassam (The Little Prince) and Pathé Films (Eiffel, the Asterix & Obelix franchise, Notre-Dame On Fire) and co-produced by DeAPlaneta Entertainment, Constantin Films and M6 Films.
In addition to the first images for the film, with main actors in costume as Alexandre Dumas’ legendary characters, we are also premiering the teaser for this adventure saga that will be released theatrically in 2023 as a two-parter: The Three Musketeers: d’Artagan and The Three Musketeers: Milady.
With a budget of more than 72 million Euros, this swashbuckling adventure is one of this year’s most ambitious European projects.
Director Martin Bourboulon delivers a historical, epic, and modern film driven by an exceptional cast, with writing duo Alexandre de la Patellière and Matthieu Delaporte penning the film adaptation of France’s most popular adventure novel, “The Three Musketeers” by Alexandre Dumas.
In addition to coproducing, DeAPlaneta Entertainment has been appointed global licensing agent for both features and is set to handle global licensing rights for most categories: from toys to stationery, gifts, food, and textiles.
Along the lines of US franchises, the international brand development will be carried out using a coordinated global strategy across all territories, with a 360º approach and a franchise roadmap when rolling out communications for both releases.
Since its publication 178 years ago, “The Three Musketeers” has been one of the most popular and acclaimed adventure novels in the world. Thanks to its iconic characters, from d’Artagnan, Athos, Aramis and Porthos to Cardinal Richelieu and spy Milady de Winter, the novel has permeated popular culture. The heroes of the story epitomize the values of loyalty and comradeship and have carried the legacy of novel through successive periods and generations.
The adventure will be split into two films to give the story the breathing room required to capture the richness and depth of the novel, The Three Musketeers: d’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers: Milady, both helmed by filmmaker Martin Bourboulon (director of hit movies including Eiffel and Daddy or Mommy). This new version of the movie will feature a star-studded cast including Vincent Cassel (Beauty and the Beast), Eva Green (Casino Royale), Romain Duris (Eiffel), Louis Garrel (Little Women) and Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread).
From the Louvre to Buckingham Palace, to the gutters of Paris to the siege of La Rochelle… in a kingdom divided by religious wars and under threat of British invasion, a handful of men and women will cross swords and tie their fate to that of France.
