Last Kingdom film in the works at Netflix
Seven Kings Must Die will see Alexander Dreymon return as Uhtred and Edward Bazalgette back in the director's chair.
The final season of historical drama The Last Kingdom will be followed up by a film.
Star Alexander Dreymon announced the project yesterday at London MCM Comic Con revealing that it’ll be titled Seven Kings Must Die and he's set to reprise his role as Uhtred, a saxon who was kidnapped as a child and raised by Vikings.
“It’s been such a privilege to tell Uhtred’s story for five seasons. I’m so grateful to our fans. They have been immensely loyal to The Last Kingdom and thanks to their support, the team is getting together for another round,” he said.
Edward Bazalgette, who has previously helmed several episodes of the show, will return to direct and is set to begin production in Budapest sometime in early 2022.
In his announcement, Dreymon confirmed that several existing cast members will also return for the film but didn’t specify who.
The Last Kingdom is adapted from Bernard Cornwell’s best-selling series the Saxon Chronicles and its upcoming fifth season will be based on entries nine and ten, Warriors of the Storm and The Flame Bearer.
Seven Kings Must Die will presumably take content from books eleven, twelve and thirteen, which are titled War of the Wolf, Sword of Kings and War Lord respectively.
The fifth season of The Last Kingdom will once again consist of ten episodes and is set to premiere on Netflix sometime in 2022
