Centurion is the upcoming British historical thriller, directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Doomsday). The film revolves around the legendary Ninth Legion marching north to wipe out the Picts and their leader Gorlacon. The legion was joined by Quintus Dias, a survivor from a Roman frontier fort that the Picts originally raided. Historically, the Ninth Legion marched into Scotland from Hadrian’s Wall with over 4,000 men and disappeared. Historians dispute the fate of the legion; some believe they were disbanded, while others believe they were massacred in Germania years later. Marshall said of his take of the legend, “It’s not meant to be historically perfect. I’m picking up on a legend and exploring it… it’s an action thriller. The film will star Dominic West, Michael Fassbender and Olga Kurylenko.
