Orlando Bloom is the latest addition to the cast of Paul W. S. Anderson’s The Three Musketeers. But instead of taking a dashing heroic role, the Lord Of The Rings and Pirates Of The Caribbean star will be playing the villainous Duke of Buckingham. Bloom joins Christoph Waltz as Cardinal Richelieu, Logan Lerman as D’Artagnan, Matthew MacFadyen as Athos, Ray Stevenson as Porthos, Luke Evans as Aramis, Milla Jovovich as M’lady De Winter and Mads Mikkelsen as Rochefort.
The Summit Entertainment is set for a 3D release next summer. Warner Brothers is also working on their own adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’s classic (and public domain) adventure novel with director Doug Liman.
