I had no idea Neil Marshall (of “Descent” fame) was even doing “Centurion” until the production released that official pic of Olga in war paint a few weeks back (below).

Britain, A.D. 117. Quintus Dias, the sole survivor of a Pictish raid on a Roman frontier fort, marches north with General Virilus’ legendary Ninth Legion, under orders to wipe the Picts from the face of the Earth and destroy their leader, Gorlacon.
“Centurion” stars “300″ guys Dominic West and Michael Fassbender, with assist from “Hitman’s” Olga Kurylenko. Neil Marshall (“The Descent”, “Dog Soldiers”) writes and directs.
