The Last Kingdom' film Seven Kings Must Die announced
Seven Kings Must Die will be directed by Ed Bazalgette and produced by Gareth Neame and Mat Chaplin
Netflix is set to produce a feature film continuation of the historical drama series The Last Kingdom. Titled Seven Kings Must Die, the two-hour feature will be backed by Carnival Films and filming will begin early next year in Budapest.
Actor Alexander Dreymon, who stars as the main character Uhtred and acts as executive producer on the show, made the announcement recently at London MCM Comic-Con. Dreymon will reprise his role and will be joined by many of the series' cast, along with some new faces.
The series is based on Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon Stories and began in 2015, first as a BBC series. Netflix joined the production team as co-producers for the show’s second season and finally acquired the full rights for the rest of the series. The show centers on a period of history around the year 866, just following the Great Heathen Army’s arrival in Britain and the Kingdom of Wessex’s resistance to ongoing Viking attacks in Southern England at the time.
Seven Kings Must Die will be directed by Ed Bazalgette and produced by Gareth Neame and Mat Chaplin.
