Distributor Pathé has revealed the full cast, release dates, and poster for the new Three Musketeers movies titled The Three Musketeers — D’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers — Milady. It seems like Alexandre Dumas' novel is finally getting another crack at the silver screen with a cast that will have audiences once more amazed by the adventures of these four friends.
The film is set to be directed by Martin Bourboulon and produced by Dimitri Rassam and Pathé. Matthieu Delaporte and Alexandre de La Patellière are slated to write the two films as well, with filming being set back-to-back for the end of this summer in France. The two films will be released in 2023 to French and Swiss theatres, with The Three Musketeers — D’Artagnan being released on April 5, 2023 and The Three Musketeers — Milady being released on December 13, 2023.
The cast for this film already has a few standout names from both the novel and French celebrities. Eva Green is set to be the cunning Milady DeWinter, alongside François Civil’s D’Artagnan, Vincent Cassel’s Athos, Romain Duris as Aramis, and Pio Marmaï as Porthos. Louis Garrel’s King Louis XIII will also feature in the film with Vicky Krieps working beside him as Queen Anne of Austria.
Alongside these staples of the novel, the two films will introduce a new character, Hannibal. The character will be played by Ralph Amoussou and will be based on the true story of Louis Anniaba, the first Black musketeer in history. With this new ally comes old enemies, with Eric Ruf as Cardinal Richelieu and Marc Barbé as Captain de Tréville. Jacob Fortune-Lloyd (The Queen's Gambit) will assume the role of the Duke of Buckingham, taking over for Oliver Jackson-Cohen whose casting was announced back in February of this year.
The casting for these new adaptations will definitely bring audiences further into Dumas’s world of sword fights, scandal, and intrigue as the novel continues to fascinate us with its twisting plots and timeless characters. The Three Musketeers — D’Artagnan will be released to theaters on April 5, 2023, with The Three Musketeers — Milady released on December 13, 2023. Check out the posters below:
