Fraser set to play William Tell?

Brendan Fraser could be playing legendary marksman William Tell in a forthcoming 3D film.

The Mummy star is set to reunite with director Eric Brevig, whom he previously worked with on Journey To The Centre Of The Earth, for a historical action adventure titled William Tell: 3D, reported Deadline.

The film about the Swiss folk hero is scheduled to start shooting next March in Romania and Switzerland.

Producer Todd Moyer told the website he wanted to pair Brendan with Eric again.

"Family action adventure is exactly what Brendan and Eric do best. Eric's skills and experience will make this film compete with any studio film," he said.

Following roles in Extraordinary Measures and Furry Vengeance, Brendan's next big-screen outing is in drama Gimme Shelter, where he portrays the dad to Vanessa Hudgen's character, and Northern Irish film Whole Lotta Sole.
