Brendan Fraser will play the titular star of the family action adventure William Tell: 3D. Producer Todd Moyer announced the casting from Cannes, saying “There is no other actor who is more perfectly suited to be the patriot and family man that is William Tell.” Nick Hurran (The Prisoner, Doctor Who) is slated to direct, with production kicking off later this fall in Romania and Switzerland. In the meantime, Moyer hopes to lock in Anna Paquin to play Zora, Tell’s wife.
