There is a new movie that is in production called Mortis Rex that looks to have some serious sword & sanity potential. Directed and written by Peter Briggs (screenwritter for the first Hellboy movie), Mortis Rex is being dubbed a horror-thriller, and promises to deliver lots of Roman on Lovecraftian beast action!
From the website:
"MORTIS REX" is an Ancient Rome monster movie. In 123 AD, a disgraced Roman war hero is sent to defend a Roman garrison stationed in remote Scotland from a spate of mysterious killings. The hero reclaims his rightful warrior status by uniting with the local Druids and vanquishing a terrifying supernatural beast.
A terrifying, fantastical action movie in the vein of BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF.
