Purefoy packs a long sword in 'Ironclad'

01.08.2010

James Purefoy is nice and bloody.

Empire got an exclusive photo from the film IRONCLAD starring Purefoy, Paul Giamatti, Robert Carlyle, Kate Mara, Bob Hoskins, Richard Attenborough, and Brian Cox.

The plot of the film takes place in the 13th century, centering around a group of Knights Templar who are defending Rochester Castle against the tyrannical King John (Giamatti). Anytime Giamatti wants to play a villain, I'm there. We haven't gotten a lot of news from this project, so it's great to see this first still.

I've been a fan of Purefoy's ever since A KNIGHT'S TALE. While doing signings for SOLOMON KANE at Comic-Con last year, he was one of the nicest guys. I just don't want to cross him when he's carrying that sword. Scary. Click on the pic to see his sword's full-length over at Empire.

Extra Tidbit: According to IMDB, Purefoy was cast as the lead in V FOR VENDETTA but departed halfway over creative differences with the makers of the film.

Oh, it's about the 1215 siege of Rochester Castle? Ouch, that's not going to end happily.

Crikey, that's one hell of a sword, isn't it?

Yeah, Fox doesn't show up on Imdb, but they aren't always so quick there. I've seen other reports that look fairly accurate. Anyway, its the rest of the cast and the story I'm exited about.

I love Giamatti as a villain. Tyrannical King this time? Should be as awesome as his Shoot 'Em Up character. But funnier.

As far as I know, it's still a rumor. She isn't on the cast list over at imdb. Last news on it was November. If I find out anything else on it, I'll let you know!

Also, if she is in it, I'd be less interested in the movie. Just let it be a surprise.
