In Arthur he gets to play Batman for a spell, complete with those ire-inspiring nipples, rippling muscles, and a pimped out Batmobile. But now Russell Brand is looking for a different type of action -- a role where the thrills are front and center. He wants a story replete with history, action, and adventure. He yearns to play a mercenary of the early renaissance -- a sword that served the Pope.

Forget Sarah Marshall, weird music videos, and dashes for the Greek. Prepare yourselves, because Brand is going to play a fourteenth century hero -- Sir John Hawkwood.
