New US TV show casting

  • GYAD

    Provided they don't make it politically correct, the Conquistador project sounds excellent. Hopefully FX has just ordered a DVD of AGUIRRE: THE WRATH OF GOD and a copy of William H. Prescott's books. If we're really lucky they'll get in touch with the ARMA and other exponents of historical European martial arts. It's one of those amazing subjects that no film or TV series has ever done justice to.

  • And probably won't, it being FX, unless they want to do an HBO. Fingers crossed, though, but I haven't been watching The History Channel's Vikings, which I guess would be the nearest comparable project
