For a brief moment in the 90’s director Paul Verhoeven, and super star Arnold Schwarzenegger had the opportunity to re-team for what surely would have been the most fascinating medieval epic of the decade – Crusade.
With a script written by Walon Green (The Wild Bunch, Sorcerer, The Man In The High Castle), Verhoeven started pushing the film forward from around the time of “Total Recall”.
The proposed cast included name stars like, Jennifer Connelly, Charlton Heston, and Gary Sinise. Sadly it was money and pirates that scuttled the production, at 100 million and growing Carolco decided to go with the cheaper option, “Cutthroat Island”, which as history tells us, was a poor choice, not only did the pirate film tank, it also closed the company.
After that the film would be mentioned in interviews with Schwarzenegger or Verhoeven over the years while promoting other projects, but it never got off the ground.
