Bond villain Mads Mikkelsen speaks about the upcoming 'The Three Musketeers'
Already a star in his native land, Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen slowly is establishing his presence in American cinema. It started with his villainous role as Le Chiffre in the James Bond reboot, âCasino Royale.â Earlier this year, he appeared alongside Sam Worthington in âClash of the Titans.â -- reports Hollywood News
But itâs a film Mikkelsen has yet to begin that has audiences salivating. He will co-star alongside Orlando Bloom, Logan Lerman, Matthew Macfayden and Milla Jovovich in a re-imagining of âThe Three Musketeers.â In the film, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, Mikkelsen plays Rochefort, a character who makes like difficult for the three heroes.
Mikkelsen spoke with Hollywood News today about another project, âCoco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky,â in which he plays the famed Russian composer. But we asked him about the tone of âMusketeersâ at the end of the interview, and received insight into Andersonâs approach.
âI think it will be lighthearted,â he said. âThe script is very close to the original (films) that we remember. Itâs very charming. Itâs funny and very lighthearted.â
Mikkelsen said theyâll start filming âThree Musketeersâ in August, with hopes of hitting an April 15, 2011 release date.
