BBC One/BBC America co-production The Musketeers is a 10-part drama that puts a new spin on the classic Alexandre Dumas tale. My Week With Marilyn scribe Adrian Hodges is penning the series that’s due to air next year. The ensemble cast now includes Peter Capaldi (The Hour, The Thick Of It) as the shadowy Cardinal Richelieu and Luke Pasqualiano (Skins, The Borgias) as D’Artagnan. Santiago Cabrera (Merlin, Heroes), Tom Burke (The Hour) and the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Howard Charles are the titular Musketeers. Also starring are Hugo Speer (next up in Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac), The Inbetweeners Movie and Being Human’s Tamla Kari and Maimie McCoy. Shooting starts next month. The Musketeers is a contemporary take on the classic story about a group of highly trained soldiers and bodyguards assigned to protect King and country. It’s set on the streets of 17th century »
