Apparently there's a lot more to Neil Marshall than we ever thought! After scaring us all with The Descent, he went on to direct Doomsday, a mash-up of everything old and new, proving that he's got a lot of things going on in his mind besides just claustrophobic horror. Next up for Marshall is Centurion, an epic action adventure film set in 117 AD about a group of Roman soldiers who must fight for their lives behind enemy lines after their legion is decimated in a devastating guerrilla attack. Seen below via Empire is ex-Bond girl Olga Kurylenko as the character Etain, described as "a savage-looking Pict warrior woman."
"Etain is kind of revenge incarnate," Marshall tells Empire. "Her family were butchered by the Romans, she had her tongue cut out by the Romans, she's had a hell of a time and she's out for Roman blood." So does that mean she won't be speaking at all in the film? "She's quite furious, because one sense is not there - she can't speak - all the others are more developed. She sees very well and hears very well: she is an animal!" In addition to Kurylenko, Centurion stars Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, Noel Clarke, and David Morrisey. And of course, it is both written and directed by Neil Marshall. Stay tuned for more details!
