Im 16. Jahrhundert...
Solomon Kane (James Purefoy, u.a. "Resident Evil", "Rom"-Serie) ist ein Soldat, der wegen seiner brutalen und grausamen Taten verdammt wurde. Er schwört fortan ein friedvolles Leben zu führen, doch als eine dunkle Macht das Land bedroht, muss er ein letztes Mal in den Kampf ziehen...

"Solomon Kane" - der erste Teil einer geplanten Trilogie - kommt am 31. Dezember 2009 in die russischen Kinos... Der Rest der Welt wird wohl erst 2010 bedient..

[...] is exactly the type of mid-range action fantasy film we need right now, something that illustrates what sharp, young directors can do with some dusted off titles and characters. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. [...]

[21.09.2009] Bei B-D gibt es eine vernichtende Kritik (1/10)...
[...] While the set designs and wardrobe were beautifully done, there’s really nothing else good about the film. In fact, I would say that Solomon Kane is one of the worst movies of the year. An unfocused mythology, with underdeveloped characters and bad acting make this an unbearable theater experience. [...]

[...] "Kane," based on Robert Howard's early 20th-century pulp novels that blend fantasy and history, screened in the Cannes market in the spring, and Davis Films is hoping for new attention and offers at TIFF. The pic is set to play Wednesday in the Midnight Madness section.
"The cut is basically the same, but a lot of distributors wanted to see it with an audience, which could really affect how a film plays," Hadida said.
Despite the lesser-known cast -- James Purefoy, starring in the title role, is perhaps the best-known name -- the filmmakers believe "Kane" could sell on the brand value of the Howard creation.
"The property is the star," said Paul Berrow, who is producing with Hadida. [...]

[27.05.2009] Twitch hat kürzlich eine Kritik zu "Solomon Kane" verfasst...
[...] Despite a loyal fan following, sword and sorcery fantasy has always been a difficult genre to pull off convincingly and, as such, has largely been neglected in recent years. But with Kane we get a different sort of sword and sorcery hero, one dropped into the puritan era rather than the middle ages, and that simple change breathes new life into a tired beast. Though not a perfect film by any stretch - some of the fighting is shot too close and edited too fast while a couple of the digital effects land only just on the acceptable side of the spectrum - but it is a hugely entertaining one, one loaded with rich characters and strong players and stacks of quality set pieces. I can only hope that the producers of the soon-to-be-revived Conan franchise are paying attention to this one because Solomon Kane is one excellent primer on how to tackle Howard and make him work for today’s audiences. No theatrical release has been announced yet but seek it out when the time comes. This is a good one.

[16.05.2009] In Michael Bassett's Blog gibt es einen Bericht über die Vorführung in Cannes...
[...] Thankfully, the market screening for Kane was jam packed with buyers from all over the world. We’ve kept this so under the raider that everyone is totally jazzed to see what we’ve been up to. A room full of buyers is probably the world’s hardest, most cynical audience . These men and women are seeing at least three movies a day and have to decide where their increasingly diminished funds are heading. I’d been warned that people will just get up and walk out without a care. They’ll know within minutes if a film fits their profile or if they can afford it. I’d braced myself for an ego bruising of quite monumental proportions but as it turned out I lost just four people out of two hundred and that was only because we started the film late and they had to go. They sat, seemingly riveted throughout and very into the whole thing. Were they Kane fans before? Probably not but were they Kane fans after? You know, I think there are a few converts today. Certainly, I don’t think James Purefoy ever has to worry about getting a job again.
Some of the biggest hitters in the film world came out of the screening seeming almost astounded, the major comments revolved around; "Purefoy is awesome.", "It is just so intense" and "it’s just so big". [...]

[14.05.2009] Michael Bassett's Blog verkündet...
[...] Solomon Kane has a UK distributor attached - Entertainment Film Distributors. They’re the biggest indie distributor, having released Lord of the Rings and whole bunch of other huge films in the UK. This kind of material is right up their street and I know they’re really behind the movie. As we’ve only just delivered the movie we’re all waiting on them to decide on a release strategy, dates etc. But I think UK residents can certainly be confident that its going to get to your local multiplex sometime later in the year.

[11.05.2009] Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik zu "Solomon Kane" von Harry Knowles...
[...] When you go to see this film - and you definitely should (when a distributor smart enough picks it up) - go in knowing this is the first film. This is the film they made before any American studio was smart enough to buy into Bassett's vision for Howard's world. Before they knew James Purefoy could carry a film like fucking Atlas. And at the end, you'll hope for the next adventure - hoping for a straight adaptation - where perhaps he'll finally get his Staff of Solomon. This is the adventure that hypes us up for more and that's the best I could have hoped for the first SOLOMON KANE adaptation. A desire to see more from this same team!

[28.04.2009] In Michael Bassett's Blog gibt es ein Update in Sachen "Solomon Kane"...
[...] Creatively Kane is finished (at least the theatrical version is.) but there’s still things that need to be done to make ‘delivery’ of the film. You see, the finishing line for a movie is never quite as clearly defined as you might imagine. In theory I should walk away when the cut is locked but there’s all the sound to supervise - to me, the mix of a movie is 40% of the theatrical experience. I like big, rich, detailed sound with a towering score and that’s not easy to achieve even on a bottomless budget and believe me we are at the very limits of our budget at this stage. So, weeks go by to make the sound as perfect as possible and once that is done the labs take over to make the 35mm print of the film from the digitally created negative. I’ve spent hours pouring over every frame of the movie with a brilliant colourist and the director of photography, trying to ensure that it looks as rich, detailed and cinematic as possible. [...]
Kane isn’t a studio movie with a release date already ring-fenced, it’s an independent production made outside the system. Admittedly it’s a pretty big indie but that’s just what it is. So there’s no one place to hand the film to. As it turns out, the sales agent, is the place where it goes because these guys are the ones who, quite literally, negotiate the sale and delivery of the film to each country that buys it. They are responsible for getting it to the places that matter. Many countries have already bought the film but a few other countries are waiting to see the final film in all its magnificence before reaching for their wallets. It’s a nerve wracking time, especially for the producers and financiers but I feel a huge responsibility to them as well. But when all is said and done, I know I’ve delivered a rock-solid movie that is really pretty unique in fantasy film making. [...]

[...] picture is locked. No more cutting, no more changes for the theatrical version of the film. Every visual effect is finalised and cut in. Editorial department has been reduced to a one man operation to oversee the negative, print and delivery.
Digital Grade is done - so the look is established and, it is gorgeous.
Titles and credits are being designed over the next couple of weeks.
Sound - I’m back in the sound mix next week to put the polish on the dynamics of the sound. Atmospheres, dialogue, score... just tweaking it all for the best, big, theatrical sound. It’s my last chance to do this before signing off so I’m grabbing this chance.
Trailer - this is being worked on by a specialist company.
Website and other promo material - this is less of a priority but I’ve seen a mock-up of a website and some online materials which is pretty decent. I don’t want stupid games and gimmicks online for this movie; it’s too classy and intense for that but since one of the producers has web business interests, I’m sure this will be handled well.
What else? Release dates? No idea about those, sorry. [...]

Max Von Sydow and Pete Postlethwaite are joining star James Purefoy in the cast of "Solomon Kane." Relative neophytes Rachel Hurd-Wood ("Perfume: the Story of a Murderer"), Alice Krige ("Silent Hill") and Mackenzie Crook (the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films) have also been cast, according to Paris-based producer-distributor Samuel Hadida, head of Davis Films.
Planned as the first in a trilogy, "Solomon Kane" is an epic tale of a 16th century soldier tormented by his past evil deeds, seeking redemption by battling a sinister power threatening the kingdom.
Pic is adapted from the pulp novels of Robert E. Howard, author of "Conan the Barbarian," first serialized in the 1920s and '30s.
Helmer Michael J. Bassett ("Deathwatch") will direct from his own script for co-producers Hadida ("Domino") and Paul Berrow, head of Epic Tales.
Shooting is due to begin in Prague this month.
International sales will be handled by Los Angeles-based Essential Entertainment and by Metropolitan Filmexport in France.
