Liebesman To Helm Old "King Arthur" Film

20 March 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Recent "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot director Jonathan Liebesman is reportedly attached to direct "Man At Arms" for Thunder Road Pictures.

Though a King Arthur story, this is not to be confused with Guy Ritchie's upcoming 'King Arthur' franchise launching effort "Knights of the Round Table" starring Charlie Hunnam and Eric Bana.

'Arms' is said to be much more akin to Clint Eastwood's "Unforgiven," and follows a now elderly Lancelot who seeks to make amends due to his love affair with Guinevere destroying Camelot.

Jeremy Lott penned the script. Basil Iwanyk, who worked with Liebesman on "Wrath of the Titans," will produce.

Lionsgate Takes Robin Hood: Origins

20 March 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joby Harold is quickly becoming the go-to guy for medieval adventures. Guy Ritchie is currently shooting Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur from his screenplay, and now Lionsgate has acquired another promising reimagining from the up-and-coming scribe – Robin Hood: Origins.

No plot details yet, though Harold’s take will of course follow the famed thief who stole from the rich and gave to the poor.

Appian Way will produce thepic alongside Safehouse Pictures’ Harold and Tory Tunnell.

Robin Hood may be making a comeback. Though the last major title to bear that name was Ridley Scott’s ill-received 2010 take, Sony has acquired a pitch for Hood, while Disney is working on turning Nottingham & Hood into a movie. Whether Harold’s take will be dark and brooding or take a lighter approach to the material is one key question. Origin stories for classic characters are all the rage these days, from »

Lionsgate

“I'm nervous and excited because I've never seen my face that large on a screen before,” said Lonsdale. “This is definitely the biggest thing I've ever done, so it was just kind of trying to wrap my head around working with so many great people -- but in another sense, it was just so exciting because I was kind of this small fish in this big pond.”

By “big pond” he means working with some of the biggest names in Hollywood like Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, Miles Teller, and Shailene Woodley »
