The Third Crusade, the 12th century clash between Islam and Christianity will be the subject of a new HBO mini-series, co-produced with Britain's Channel 4, and be told through the eyes of their respective leaders, Saladin and Richard the Lionheart. The new miniseries' first four hours will be written by Kario Salem. Salem said: "This is not some dry historical costume drama. This is a personal story. I think it of it as a medieval gangster epic." The original 10-hour version has been cut by two hours. Don McPherson will write the final four episodes.
