Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel is an upcoming historical drama film. Nicole Holofcener, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon wrote the script based on Eric Jager’s novel of the same name. Damon, Adam Driver, Jodie Comer, and Ben Affleck appear in the picture.
The book’s adaptation was initially mentioned in 2015, but it wasn’t formally greenlit until July 2019. That month, Affleck and Damon were announced as leads and co-writers, with Comer and Driver joining the ensemble later that year. From February to October 2020, filming was conducted in France and Ireland, with a brief pause owing to the continuing COVID-19 epidemic.
The Last Duel will have its global debut on September 10, 2021, at the Venice Film Festival, and will be distributed in the United States by 20th Century Studios on October 15, 2021.
Marguerite de Thibouville alleges she was raped by her husband’s best friend in 14th-century France. Her husband, knight Jean de Carrouges, challenges Jacques Le Gris, a friend, and squire, to a combat trial. In France’s history, it is the final officially sanctioned duel.
