The movie gives me hope. It was entertaining (to me, anyway) and indicates there is still plenty of room in the market for a different take on the Dumas classic. I'd say, the new movie went in several directions that were designed to appeal to today's audiences. It was a cross between Sherlock Holmes, Pirates of the Caribbean and ... well, go and decide yourself. Then, buy my book once it's published. I've tried to track a little more closely to the classic novel while giving the characters more depth.
