Three Gun Blues (2002) by Josh Olson

Tried to search the site for this, but it disregards "three" and "gun" as being "too short or common."

This is the first big spec sale for Olson. His reworking of the Three Musketeers as LAPD cops. Purchased by New Line for Gale Anne Hurd/Valhalla for mid-six.

I'd love to read this as well. Three Musketeers is my favorite novel, and I'd be interested to read this take.

Have you read the book The Black Count? Pulitzer Prize-winning bio of Dumas' father, who lived the life Dumas wrote about.

Generations have been enthralled by Alexandre Dumas' characters, especially the wronged hero in The Count of Monte Cristo and the daring swordsmen in The Three Musketeers. Yet few realize that these memorable characters were inspired by Dumas' father, General Alex Dumas, the son of a French count and a black Haitian slave. Tom Reiss brings the elder Dumas alive with previously unpublished correspondence and meticulous research, providing the context necessary to understand how exceptional his life as a mulatto general in a slave-owning empire truly was. From single-handedly holding a bridge in the Alps against 20 enemies to spending years held captive in a fortress, Alex Dumas is a fascinating character that not even his son's vivid imagination could have dreamed up.

Don't suppose you found this at all?
