Jim Caviezel is ready to take aim on this next project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Caviezel is set to star in William Tell: The Legend for Flagship Films.
Til Schweiger will also star in the film, which will recount the tale of how Caviezel's Tell challenged the Hapsburg monarch Hermann Gessler (Schweiger). This feud led to an uprising against the Austrian government and ultimately culminated with the formation of Switzerland.
Nick Hurran is directing from a script he co-wrote with Scott Reynolds. Shooting is scheduled to begin this September in Romania.
