After seeing some of the costumes in The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, I’ve been wanting to see Adam as the lead in a costume drama.
He’s been listed as a cast member on on a film called ‘The Last Duel’ on IMDB for a while now, but the character he was playing has never been revealed.
King Charles VI declares that Knight Jean de Carrouges settle his dispute with his squire by challenging him to a duel.
It has finally been announced that Adam will be playing the squire, Jacques LeGris opposite Matt Damon as Jean de Carrouges.
The film itself is based on a true story, so I decided to Google it.
Sir Jaques Le Gris was a french squire and knight who gained fame and infamy when he engaged in the last judicial duel permitted by the Parlement of Paris after he was accused of rape by the wife of his neighbour and rival Sir Jean de Carrouges. This all took place in the late 1300s in France.
Le Gris is described as a large and physically imposing character, which is spot on for Adam.
He is also said to have had a reputation for womanising! Something which he touched on in ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ and something I would love to see more of! Getting Adam totally out of his comfort zone.
Ben Affleck is also tied to the project, and Ridley Scott is Directing, so Adam is getting another great director under his belt!
So it looks like I am getting my wish to see Adam in historical costume com true. The only downside is that, having read the real story, I know how this one will turn out for Adam’s character. Why can’t he have a happy ending for once?!!!
All in all, I’m quite intrigued and look forward to see this one next Christmas.
