If the perfect mix for a film is action-adventure, mystical characters and some ancient legends thrown in, then the History Channel have succeeded with their upcoming show scheduled for fall 2017. Jeremy Renner (‘Thor’, ‘Avenger’s’) is the executive producer, and sometime cast member. According to ‘The Hollywood Reporter’, ‘We thought since Star Wars began at the end, with the end of the Jedi Knights, and since George Lucas used the Knights Templar as an inspiration for the Jedi, we could start at the end as well,” said Richard Rayner, who co-created the series with Don Handfield’. A 10-episode season, filmed in the Czech republic and boasting a multi-million dollar budget promises a ‘Game of Thrones’ extravaganza Templar-style.
‘Knightfall’ is set in the medieval world of the most famous Crusaders of all time. The elite force that made up the warrior-monks of the Order of Solomon’s Temple, or as most people know them, the Knights Templars.
