Are you ready to get Conquered!? God that’s a bad line. I hope they use it!

It looks like epic script-monger extraordinaire William Nicholson (Gladiator, Elizabeth: The Golden Age) will be blasting back to the past yet again to bring William the Conqueror and King Harold to the big screen. Time for a little Norman conquest drama.

The script allegedly “focuses on the relationship between the two great warriors of the age. King Harold of England and William The Conqueror were initially comrades, becoming bitter enemies destined to fight to the death at the climactic Battle of Hastings.”

Sounds interesting.

Nicholson unveiled the crux of his story: “In 1066, character is revealed above all in battle, which gives me the thrilling chance to craft an epic action story that delivers on a human scale.” Despite only being in the development stages, the film is being fast-tracked, with producers hoping to begin filming this year.

Sounds good! I personally like Nicholson’s epics. They’re big ORIGINAL movies based on history. Nicely done!

What do you think, are you game for a 1066 flashback? And who would you like to see play WillianWilliam the Conqueror m and Harold on screen?
