Rex Features

Rome star James Purefoy has signed up for the lead role in medieval action thriller Ironclad.

Taking place in 13th century England, the story centres on the renowned Knight Templar (Purefoy) who defended Rochester Castle against King John and his ruthless army.

Joining Purefoy in the cast are Paul Giamatti as King John, Robert Carlyle, Bob Hoskins, Pete Postlethwaite, Lord Richard Attenborough, William Moseley, Colm Meany and Angus McFayden.

The film had been scheduled to go into production last year until financing fell through. ContentFilm International has put together a package to revive the project, which may film as early as this summer.
