Logan Lerman will be leaping back onto the big screen this month in the 3D adventure 'The Three Musketeers.'

Logan also covers the new issue of DA MAN magazine, where opens up about taking on the role of D'Artagnan, his love of film, and more.

DA MAN: Tell us about The Three Musketeers? As a re-make, what makes this version different?
It's a version where the musketeers are portrayed as kind of like the James Bonds of their time. They are weaponry experts and have all of these gadgets and little details; fun little things they added.

DA MAN: D'Artagnan is a very different role for you-how did you approach it?
Yes, it was a different role for me. The character is cocky and impulsive, and different from any other character I'd played, but on top of that, it was just a really physically challenging movie to make. [It involved] months and months of training and detailed fight scenes that are constantly changing throughout the process; constantly staying on your toes and being ready to try something that scares you throughout the whole process. It was intense and nerve-racking, but in the end, you get such an adrenalin rush from doing it that, at the end of each day, you're glad that whatever you did went well and no one got hurt.

DA MAN: When you're not on set, how do you keep yourself fresh? What do you do to feed your artistic desires?
I see a lot of films. I'm constantly talking about future ideas or new ideas and pursuing them, writing them, creating loglines for stories. But in my free time I see a lot of films; I like to play music, I'd say that may be what keeps me most creatively stimulated.

DA MAN: As a student of film, what do you think about the recent obsession with 3-D?
I don't think it's a bad or good thing. It's just a new medium. Not even a new medium, really. I appreciate it when it's used well-when it's used intentionally.

DA MAN: If there was one thing you could do outside of film, what would it be?
It would be music. It would be the music industry. I've always had a huge passion for it, just as much as movies, actually. I love playing. I play the piano, guitar; I can also play other instruments: bass, drums, different types of guitars ... ukulele, but primarily guitar.

DA MAN: What's your next project?
It's called The Only Living Boy in New York. We don't have a start date. It's a cool project that I'm attached to, but it's a great story. It's a funny script about this young guy that sees his dad at a restaurant on a date with another woman-a younger co-worker-and in order to save his parents' marriage, he starts to stalk the woman that his father's seeing. Building up the courage to confront her, and tell her to stop seeing his father, he ends up having an affair with his father's mistress ... it's a funny little movie.
