Medieval - Seven Warriors will play dirty

Recently many of the Hollywood studios where fighting over a screenplay called Medieval. It is written by newcomers Alex Litvak and Michael Finch. It eventually sold for over $1 million to New Regency Pictures.

The basic story is described as The Dirty Dozen set in medieval times. That's all I needed to hear to make me want to see this movie. The Dirty Dozen with swords and armour sounds good to me. First Showing say that it has been called a "badass script" about seven imprisoned men. That makes it The Dirty Dozen, Seven Samurai / The Magnificent Seven set in Medieval times.

These seven men are a gypsy, a thief, a samurai, a knight, a monk, an Arab and a Viking. That's a whole mix of armours, swords and fighting styles. New Regency is hoping to spin it into a "hyper-realistic action movie" similar to Zack Snyder's 300.

Production Weekly had stated that McG was attached as director. However, the Hollywood Reporter has no mention of McG. I can't wait to hear a bit more about the plot.

What actors would you like to see play the seven warriors and who could direct it?
