Journey to the Center of the Earth director will take on Brendan Fraser's William Tell 3D

09.09.2011
The combination of sometimes bloated actor Brendan Fraser and director Eric Brevig in 2008's 3D adventure film JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH must've made some suits in Hollywood happy (i.e. money). A press release from Arclight Films reveals that Brevig will take over for "Doctor Who" vet Nick Hurran and reunite with Fraser once more for TELL 3D, a movie about William Tell that's looking to mimic both the "family thrills" of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and the "stylized action" of SHERLOCK HOLMES. Hmmm.

Here's the film's synopsis, per Arclight's press release:

In an age of oppression and tyranny, Tell (Fraser) is forced to rise up against those who threaten his lands and family. The governor of Switzerland lies dying, and Austrian Hermann Gessler is waiting to take his place. Try as he might, Tell cannot keep himself out of the conflict that ensues, and soon finds his own wife and children embroiled in it. Refusing to bow to a tyrant, he is forced to shoot an apple off the head of his own son – and then he swears revenge. It is the inspiration of a nation, and the stuff of legend.

At one point, tne project had attached both Anna Paquin and Til Schweiger in the roles of Tell’s wife and Hermann Gessler respectively. The new press release, however, makes no mention of the pair.

TELL 3D is tentatively looking at a 2012 release.
