Top movie man signed for Island film

The quest for the holy grail will come to the Island later this year, at least in cinematic form.

Seven Arts Pictures and Valhalla Motion Pictures have announced they have signed a director for Mortal Armour: The Legend of Galahad, an epic period romance.

Director Mikael Salomon will take charge of the movie, which will start production in late summer.

Salomon directed episodes of Band of Brothers and Rome but is best-known as the Oscar-nominated director of photography on James Cameron’s The Abyss.
