INTERVIEW: Petr Jákl on Adapting the Life of Czech National Hero Jan Žižka for the Big Screen in ‘MEDIEVAL’

Czech actor, director, producer, and former stuntman Petr Jákl’s (Ghoul) spectacular action drama Medieval, an enthralling depiction of one man’s battle to the ultimate victory is all set to release this Friday, 28 October in UK cinemas and On Demand.

Directed by Jákl, from a screenplay he adapted from an original story by Marek Dobes, Medieval stars Ben Foster (Hell or Highwater, 3:10 to Yuma), Matthew Goode (Stoker, The Imitation Game), Sophie Lowe (Blow the Man Down, Beautiful Kate), Til Schweiger (Inglorious Bastards, Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door), William Moseley (The Royals), Rolland Møller (Atomic Blonde), Karel Roden (Orphan), and Oscar-winning actor Sir Michael Caine (The Dark Knight, Cider House Rules). The film is a fearsome retelling of the story of fifteenth-century Czech icon and warlord Jan Žižka, who defeated armies of the Teutonic Order and the Holy Roman Empire.

In anticipation of the film releasing under Vertical Entertainment on 28th October in UK cinemas and On Demand on Sky Store, Amazon, Rakuten, Virgin, iTunes, Microsoft Store, Google Play, and Chili, CinemaChords sat down with Jákl to discuss retelling the story of Bohemian military commander Jan Žižka with a jaw-dropping ensemble cast of heavy-hitters.
