According to The Hollywood Reporter‘s Heat Vision blog, Doug Liman is now in negotiations to direct an adaptation of the swashbuckling Alexandre Dumas novel for Warner Bros., which will compete with the film Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil) has been prepping for Summit. The trade says Liman’s film would likely be in 3-D, and will be produced by Lionel Wigram, who worked on Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes update. What do you think?

Taking into account the levels of cleverness Liman is capable of (The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Swingers, Go) — and bearing in mind the tagline from the 1993 film, “They’re Scoundrels, Playboys, Outlaws…The Greatest Heroes Who Ever Lived” — I’m in. And ready to talk casting. Suggestions? I’m thinking Sons of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam…
