As for the story – well where do I begin? It tells the story of a young Roman officer, played by Channing Tatum in the film, who has the death of his father hanging over his head like a Klingon dishonour. He wants to know the truth about the disappearance of his father’s legion (the Ninth) and so goes north over Hadrian’s wall with his trusted slave Esca (played by Jamie Bell). As they travel further north the two have to exchange roles in order to pass safely through savage Pictish territory. At its heart the story is one of a clash of cultures and a search for familial redemption. And it is very, very exciting. Loads of battles and blood ensue, but the book has a heart that I hope will not be ripped out by a bunch of Hollywood executives.
The Eagle Of The Ninth will be realeased in mid 2010.
