Filming has begun in Galway, Ireland on Scott Free's Tristan & Isolde, directed by Kevin Reynolds.

Set in the Dark Ages, it is the story of a princess and young warrior's love affair which threatens to tear apart an uneasy peace between England and Ireland.

Written by Dean Georgaris (Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, Paycheck, Mission Impossible 3), Tristan & Isolde stars James Franco, Sophia Myles and Rufus Sewell.

The film is being produced for Scott Free by Lisa Ellzey (The Gathering Storm), Giannina Facio (Matchstick Men), Moshe Diamant (A Sound of Thunder) and Elie Samaha (The Whole Ten Yards).

Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Jim Lemley and Frank Hubner serve as executive producers. Co-producing are Anne Lai and Jan Fantl.
