The exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage (right) seems to be going from project to project–with very little down time between. So that means more choices for RA fans in what we see him in–surely something for everyone. Though a rom com would also be nice.
Next up for RA, filming is soon to begin on “Pilgrimage”, the tale of a group of monks moving a precious religious relic from point A to point B. I am sure that will be interesting. Uh huh. So we can only hope for some monk in-fighting, bawdy girls trying to get under their cassocks, and a skinny dipping scene at a lake to liven things up a bit. Ha! Just kidding! Me being facetious! But heck! This film is billed as “action-adventure”. So monks running amok come to mind. Again, meant facetiously. Sheesh!
Thanks to RA Bulgaria for the copy of RA’s Weibo tweet and image (left). Thanks to Servetus for pointing out the Norwegian contemporary painter as Odd Nerdrum.
“Pilgrimage” will film on location in Ireland and France. And here is some background about the historical period at Perry’s blog.
And for RA’s look as a monk, I’m thinking Sean Connery’s monk cassock in “In the Name of the Rose” mashed up manip with RA’s face (from Laura, Thanks!) and Cadfael’s hairstyle (right).
Finally, here are some RA tweets and other links about RIchard Armitage’s role in “Pilgrimage:
