Universal prepares Musketeer

The high action adaptation of the classic Alexandre Dumas tale, Universal Studios Home Entertainment is preparing a new DVD for Musketeer.

Set in Eighteenth Century France, when his parents are slaughtered by Cardinal Richelieu’s man, Febre (Tim Roth), the young D’Artagnan is raised to be a musketeer by the loyal Planchet (Jean-Pierre Castaldi). Fourteen years later, Planchet takes the now-grown D’Artagnan (Justin Chambers) to Paris. There, they discover that the king’s musketeers have been disbanded, that Richelieu (Stephen Rea) is plotting to undermine the monarchy, and that Febre is barely under control. So, the upstart D’Artagnan boldly sets out to reinvigorate the musketeers and save the monarchy–while taking revenge on Febre.

With audio mixes in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1, “The Musketeer” will be given an anamorphic widescreen transfer. The disc is simple, but contains some interesting features including cast and crew filmographies, production notes, a theatrical trailer and something called News Raps. The disc will also feature DVD-ROM content.

Priced at $26.98, “Musketeer” will come to DVD on February 26th.
