BOUDICA Artwork Lends Multiple Looks At Olga Kurylenko In Jesse V. Johnson’s Celtic Sword Epic
I’m told that Bleiberg/Dimbort scored some great sales during EFM this month on upcoming period sword epic, Boudica, the details of which remain under wraps until the trades speak further on the matter. In the meantime, one of the biggest reveals was the key sales art which also appeared in Screendaily’s Digital Magazine over the weekend, and now we have some new sample art courtesy of the creators behind the initial artwork, MOT Creative, which you can spool through via Instagram in the embed below.
Written and directed by Jesse V. Johnson, Boudica marks a reunion for the director with White Elephant actress Olga Kurylenko whose recent credits also partly include Marvel’s Black Widow, and Hulu period actioner The Princess. Set in A.D. 60 and inspired by true events, Kurylenko takes the mantle as the titular trained Celtic warrior who rules modernized and cultured Iceni alongside her husband Prastagus (Clive Standen). Following his death at the hands of Roman soldiers, Boudica’s kingdom is without a male heir and the Romans seize her land and property. Taken to the edge of madness and determined for revenge, she successfully rallies the different Celtic and British tribes to combine forces and wage an epic, unprecedented war against the insurgent Roman empire.
Boudica is produced by Ehud Bleiberg along with Lucinda Rhodes Thakrar and Mark Vennis and is exec produced by Nicholas C. Bennett, Ariel Bleiberg, Danny Dimbort and Julie Kroll.
