Anderson similar 3D project is being rounded out. Heat Vision Blog is reporting that Anderson's The Three Musketeers has added such names as Christoph Waltz, Ray Stevenson and Anderson's wife, Milla Jovovich to the cast.

Other confirmed cast members are Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans and Matthew Macfadyen as Porthos, Athos and Aramis, along with Mads Mikkelsen portraying Rochefort. Waltz will portray Cardinal Richelieu and Jovovich will portray Milady de Winter. The site also reports that an offer has gone out to Orlando Bloom for the role of the Duke of Buckingham.

Anderson will direct the film, which will be shot in 3D, from a script he co-wrote with Andrew Davies. Filming was said to begin in September.

    Waltz is a great actor, he proved that with Inglourious Basterds, but if Paul Anderson's directing it then there's no hope for the movie

    Thanks Todd. And I forgot to mention Waltz. All, I can say is Ohhh damn! He's going to tear it up like he did in Basterds. He was actually scary in that. He totally kept me on the edge of my seat. Literally!

    The cast is pretty kick-ass. Could use a better writer/director though.

    I like all of them but Anderson isn't that great as a director but he's better as a writer. Milla can be good at times but I agree with VanBoy. Bloom would be good in this.

    The cinematography should really be epic and explode in 3D. Bloom would be a great addition. After seeing him in Kingdom of Heaven he would fit in perfectly. Now that he's not involved with PotC, he needs something to keep him rolling in grand scale, credible, period piece films, which suit him so well.

    I really don't think Milla is suited for this. Would have rather seen Knightley, Portman, Beckinsale, Beil or even Seyfried in that role. Milla is an action only babe and she needs to keep rolling with that. One day, when she's maybe fifteen years older, she can switch to drama or suspense or something along those lines. I just won't believe in the character now. Who knows, maybe she'll surprise us.

    solid cast. I like Mads, Ray, and Luke a lot. Lerman is coming into his own. Hope he does well. Like Waltz being in it - even if he is becoming stereotyped as a villian. Bloom will pass. 3D - shockerrrrr. oh well, bring it on.

    Ha, ha. More 3D. Keep em comin'. Looks like it's more than a fad. YES!!!!

    Awe, you're gonna get a headache? Low mind power is what causes that. Like Leaslie Neilson and the ships doctor trying to use their mind power on that headset mind machine on Forbidden Planet.

    waiting for a trailer. hopefully bloom stays away - too similar a role for him. also - i have ZERO interest in seeing this in 3D. it's already expensive enough for me to get to the theater as it is, not paying $4 extra bucks to see a movie in 3D and get a headache in return.

    i'm not a wsanderson fan either, or a 3 musketeers fan, or a mill jovavich fan, but i do like that waltz guy. liking one member of a cast isn't really enough to get me to watch a movie i am otherwise not interesting in, though.
