Knightfall, the series history drama filmed last year in Dubrovnik, will finally have a premiere in December.
This latest historical series from the History channel, deals with medieval politics and the conflicts of the Templars, the most powerful and richest military order in the Middle Ages. Their order was founded after the First Crusade, and they were committed to defending the paths that lead to Jerusalem.
Knightfall was directed by Don Handfield and Richard Rayner, and the main role was played by Tom Cullen, who appears as the Knight Landry. Jim Carter, Olivia Ross, Ed Stoppard, Julian Ovenden, Sabrina Bartlett, Pádraic Delaney, Bobby Schofield and Sarah-Sofie Boussnina also appear in the series too.
Knightfall was partly filmed in Dubrovnik in the summer of 2016. The bay of Pile directly in front of the Old City walls of Dubrovnik was chosen as a location for an all-action scene with Templar Knights fighting and escaping on waiting ships.
The premiere will be on Wednesday, December 6th. It will be fun to see Dubrovnik in its new role!
