ROME movie gets script

Rome's producer and creator Bruno Heller has completed a script for a film set four years after the conclusion to the TV series. The film will apparently be set amongst the Germanic tribes and feature the continuing adventures of Titus Pullo (Ray Stevenson) and Lucius Vorenus (Kevin McKidd). Morning Light Productions will make the film in collaboration with HBO, who screened the original, brilliant series.

Excellent news :-)

That is great news Adam. ROME was brilliant. Do you know anything of the timing of production, or this still just an idea floating in Hollywood?

That seems to be a trend right now, but fortunately one I like.

Very pleased to hear that we have not seen the last of Pullo and Vorenus.

Sweet, sounds like an interesting idea. Hope they pull it off!

Hmm, so Vorenus wasn't dead after all?
I kinda hoped that the film (if it were made) would cover the bits of history that the TV series skipped, like the war between Octavian and Antony. But this sounds great...

25 BC. Hm, I wonder if they mean Germania Magna, or rather Raetia, because the latter would fit with the timeline of Augustus' conquest of that province.

Drusus' campaigns into Germania Magna started 16 BC, and for participating in the Varus battle 9 AD, our friends would be a bit too old.

So I guess rumoours of Lucius Vorenus' death were vastly exagerated? He seemed pretty dead at the end of the show. Hopefully they'll address that issue somehow.

Could work as backstory that's only mentioned: unspecified wounds, an excellent Roman physician ... Most people will glad to have him back and not ask too many questions. :)
