Currently filming, the films “The Three Musketeers” include Eva Green in the cast, in the skin of Milady. A tailor-made role yet very different from the character in Alexandre Dumas’ novel. The actress revealed some surprising details.
The Three Musketeers: the big cinema piece of 2023
Currently, what will be the cinematic event of 2023 is filming in France. The two films adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas The three Musketeers will be released on April 5 (D’Artagnan) and December 13, 2023 (Milady). Directed by Martin Bourboulon (eiffel), they feature a five-star cast. Indeed, we find, among others, François Civil (D’Artagnan), Eva Green (Milady), Vincent Cassel (Athos), Romain Duris (Aramis) and Pio Marmaï (Porthos).
The official synopsis promises an epic saga, as we have rarely seen in French cinema:
From the Louvre to Buckingham Palace, from the slums of Paris to the siege of La Rochelle… In a Kingdom divided by the wars of religion and threatened with invasion by England, a handful of men and women will cross their swords and link their destiny to that of France.
Eva Green announces a warlike Milady
Accustomed to complex roles, sometimes poisonous, Eva Green seems to be made for the role of Milady. In an interview given to our colleagues at Première for their May 2022 issue, the actress revealed the outlines of his character. She explains in particular why it is very different from Dumas’s novel.
“Milady has a psychopathic side, she betrays since the dawn of time. But the films allow us to better understand why: it is a love wound that made her ultra-feminist and driven by this permanent desire to take revenge on men. She was a very human woman before she became this femme fatale. An anti-heroine whose script explains why she became insensitive, diabolical and unscrupulous. She seems to me more carnal in the films than in the books. And that’s obviously what made me want to embody it. Because once this wickedness is installed, the two films will not stop digging a humanity that did not really appear in Dumas”
declared Eva Green before evoking the warrior dimension of Milady:
The storylines also made her much more of a warrior. She has real fight scenes where she appears stronger than the others. La Milady by Martin Bourboulon has traveled to many countries, particularly in Asia. She has ways of fighting different from those of the musketeers, close to what we can see in Tiger and Dragon. Her look goes with it all.
See you in 2023 to discover Eva Green in the skin of Milady. We are already looking forward!
