"Solomon Kane," the upcoming live-action film based on the evil-vanquishing adventures of Robert E. Howard's pulp-era hero, has received a fair share of buzz lately due to a well-received screening of footage during Comic-Con in San Diego. Thanks to a recent comic book series authored by Dark Horse Comics editor Scott Allie and a run of comics published by Marvel in the 1970s and '80s, the puritanical swordsman has a long history in the comics world—and if all goes as planned, it could have a long life on the big screen, too.
Starring James Purefoy and is written/directed by Michael J. Bassett, "Solomon Kane" will premiere Wednesday, September 16, at the Toronto International Film Festival. Check out an exclusive featurette from the film here on Splash Page:
