It’s been 11 years since the 2002 version of The Count of Monte Cristo thrilled audiences with the adventures of the intrepid Edmond Dantes. An enduring classic novel penned by The Three Musketeers author Alexandre Dumas in 1844, the upcoming new version of Monte Cristo has the film’s director David S. Goyer amped up about bringing a new take on an old tale.
“During my career I’ve enjoyed re-invigorating and contextualizing classic characters that are relatable to contemporary audiences. Michael has written an excellent script and I’m going to enjoy bringing our take of the rich and textured world of Monte Cristo to the big screen," said David S. Goyer when talking about the upcoming project.
Set in France during the 19th century, the character Edmond Dantes is wrongly accused of high treason and is imprisoned in a barbaric prison on an isolated island, robbed of liberty, youth and love. »
