According to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog,Ray Stevenson ('The Book of Eli'), Luke Evans ('Clash of the Titans') and Matthew Macfadyen ('Robin Hood') have been cast as Porthos, Athos and Aramis, respectively, while Logan Lerman (photo, right) ('Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief') is in negotiations to play D'Artagnan. The cast of villains includes Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz as Cardinal Richelieu and Mads Mikkelsen as Rochefort, and Anderson's real-life wife, Milla Jovovich, has been cast as Milady de Winter.
