Doug Liman (Fair Game) will soon direct a 3D Three Musketeers — apparently intended to be a kind of goofball japey Eloi-friendly version in the vein of Sherlock Holmes. This is a futile endeavor in the sense that no one — no one! — will ever out-score or out-attitude Richard Lester‘s The Three Musketeers (’73), which is coming out on a new DVD on 6.1.10. So Liman’s film is double-doomed by way of comparison and the cousin-of-Sherlock Holmes continuity factor. Okay, he’ll probably make a better Musketeers than Stephen Herek‘s version — big deal.
