Apparently a new role for Colin. Recently cast as The Duke of Blackwood in the forthcoming Universal Pictures film, The Huntsman, scheduled for release in April 2016.
It appears some filming has already been done on this production, which started out as a sequel to the 2012 film Snow White and the Huntsman. After a few hiccups, it was announced on July 31, 2014, that there would not be a sequel, but a prequel. Principal photography on the film began on April 6, 2015. Filming also occurred from May to July 2015, as well as July 2015.
It is not clear what role The Duke of Blackwood has to play in the story, or how they may plan to insert it in the filming that has already been done. This being a Universal Pictures film it may not, and probably won’t, have the emotional elements we find so engaging in Colin’s performances. Of course, it is always a treat to watch him, regardless of the role. And perhaps in Period costuming, as well.
Here is a link to the trailer for the 2012 production, to which this endeavor aspires to be a prequel. It will give you some idea of the storyline and what to expect from the production.
