So to be honest I'd never heard of Solomon Kane before today; and then all of a sudden while surfing over at ComingSoon.net I came across this fantastic new poster for the film. Click to enlarge.
The titular character comes to us from Robert E Howard, famed creator of Conan the Barbarian, and the film is set to star James Purefoy, best known as Mark Anthony on Rome. According to ComingSoon "Solomon Kane is a 16th Century soldier who learns that his brutal and cruel actions have damned him. Determined to redeem himself, Kane swears to live a life of peace and goodness but is forced to fight once more when a dark power threatens the land." The film is supposed to start shooting this month in Eastern Europe, and is being written and directed by Michael J. Bassett a man who's made a couple of films I've never heard of, but probably should have.
Have to keep our eyes open on this one, it might just turn out to be something good. I know I for one am already intrigued...
