Ironclad Movie

Ironclad is an upcoming action movie directed by Jonathan English. The film chronicles the siege of Rochester Castle by King John in the year 1215. It is starring Paul Giamatti, James Purefoy, Brian Cox, Mackenzie Crook, Jason Flemyng, and Kate Mara. I

Here's a first look at James Purefoy as the Templar knight Marshall in the movie Ironclad:

James Purefoy - IroncladPlot:
"A ragtag group of Knights Templar hold out for months against the hard-fought siege of Rochester Castle in the thirteenth Century. Set in the time of King John's signing of the Magna Carta treaty, the group struggles against the King to defend the freedom of their country."

Judging from james Purefoy's bloody sword, the movie Ironclad is going to be a bloody feast! Well at least it is will be somewhat historically accurate because the Siege of Rochester Castle was a damn bloody mess, a really hard-fought battle!

Ironclad should be released sometime in 2010.
