Jim Caviezel will star in "William Tell: The Legend" according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The producers plan to take a page from Ridley Scott's upcoming "Robin Hood", the idea here is a gritty fact-based version of the medieval legend.
The story follows how crossbow marksman William Tell challenged the Hapsburg monarch Albrecht Gessler Tell's defiance ignited an uprising against the Austrian government which led to the formation of Switzerland.
What's the point of the word "legend" in the title if the flick will not focus on that aspect of the story....?
Wonder if Caviezel likes apples?
Nick Hurran calls the shots from a script by himself and Scott Reynolds. Shooting kicks off this September in Romania.
