Knights is a big-budget film adaptation of the British author Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling novel, and the new movie will star Mandy Patinkin, who starred in the first film and has been in several other adaptations of the book.
In a statement to The Canadian Press, the company said it was “extremely grateful” for the support of the Patinkins.
The film has received a slew of awards including best picture and best actress at the Oscars, but the first trailer has garnered mixed reviews from critics.
“We have been working very closely with the Patinskis on the script, and we have great faith in the script,” said Chris Aronson, Knight’s CEO and co-founder.
“The Patinskins have done a tremendous job and we are very proud of them for that.”
Aronson said that he expects the film will have “a very diverse cast.”
The new film will star Kate Winslet, who plays a former British spy who’s recruited to spy on her husband and their daughter, as well as Liam Hemsworth as the leader of the Knights, the secret police of London who have been at war with the British for decades.
The film is expected to come out this summer.
