Brendan Fraser will reunite with his “Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D” director Eric Brevig for another three-dimensional family flick, “William Tell”.
Nick Hurran was originally set to direct the adventure flick, set to lens shortly in the cost-effective terrain of Romania.
Producer Todd Moyer tells Deadline, “Family action adventure is exactly what Brendan and Eric do best,” he said. “Eric’s skills and experience will make this film compete with any studio film.”
Chad and Evan Law are tweaking their script for the $27 million dollar pic.
The site says “according to the producers, Tell is a revered historical figure in Europe. Hermann Gessler, the local potentate of the Hapsburg monarch, forces Tell to shoot the apple off his son’s head because he refused to bow before Gessler’s hat. Tell drills the apple cleanly and wins both his and his son’s freedom. When Gessler asked Tell why he had two arrows in his quiver, Tell informed him that the second was for Gessler, had Tell missed with the first arrow. His defiance ignited an uprising against the Austrian government that led to the formation of Switzerland.”
Gary Hamilton’s Arclight Pictures are selling “William Tell : 3D” in Toronto.
