Ryan Phillippe Leads Viking Quest
Sean Bean and Abbie Cornish will also star
Written and directed by Menno Meyjes ("Max"), "Last Battle Dreamer" is set to be financed by Future Films, with production beginning later this year.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Phillippe will play Thorfinn, a seventh century Viking warrior who invades Britain with his "battle-scarred" brother Hakon (Bean).
Now where's Johnny Drama when you need him?
The busy Meyjes has the John Cusack vehicle "Martian Child" opening in October, with the matador biopic "Manolete," starring Adrien Brody, in post-production.
Phillippe ("Flags of Our Fathers") and Cornish ("A Good Year") star together in Kimberly Pierce's upcoming "Stop Loss."
Recent credits for Bean include "Flightplan," "Silent Hill" and "The Hitcher."
