Have you watched Raised By Wolves yet? If not, go ahead and do that on HBO! However, if you have, you must be waiting for another Ridley Scott film/TV show. We have good news for you! Ridley Scott is directing The Last Duel, an upcoming historical drama thriller. It is based on Eric Jager’s book The Last Duel: A True Story of Trial by Combat in Medieval France. 

Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Nicole Holofcener wrote the screenplay for the movie, so we can expect great things from the movie! Especially since Affleck and Damon wrote the Oscar winning screenplay and story for Good Will Hunting and delivered great performances in the movie as well.

When does the movie come out? What is it all about? Well, read more to find out!

The Last Duel: Plot and Cast

The movie tells the story of the last officially recognised duel in France. On December 29, 1386, a trial by combat took place in France between Norman knight Jean de Carrouges and squire Jacques Le Gris. Jean de Carrouges accused Le Gris of raping his wife Marguerite de Carrouges née de Thibouville.

He first sought legal respite but with no avail. He also went to King Charles VI to seek an appeal for the decision by Count Pierre d’Alençon as he believed the latter favoured Le Gris. When it didn’t work out, they arranged the duel.

Whoever remained alive at the end will be declared the winner according to God’s will. If Jean de Carrouges lost, then Marguerite de Carrouges will be burnt at stake for making a ‘false statement’ about being raped.

Matt Damon plays Jean de Carrouges while Jodie Comer plays Marguerite de Carrouges. Adam Driver plays Jacques Le Gris while Ben Affleck plays King Charles VI.

The Last Duel: Release Date and Trailer

The film was originally supposed to be released on December 25, 2020. However, it was delayed to October 15, 2021 due to the pandemic. Watch the actors at an interview below:
