28 August 2014 6:53 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Charlie Hunnam, star of "Sons of Anarchy" and "Pacific Rim," is in final negotiations for the title role in director Guy Ritchie’s "King Arthur" (aka "Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur"), Deadline reports. Warner Bros. is said to envision an epic six-movie fantasy retelling of the Arthurian saga, conceived by "Awake" screenwriter Joby Harold, who penned the first installment. Ritchie had been developing his own King Arthur project with his partner Lionel Wigram before boarding this film. Hunnam’s "Pacific Rim" co-star Idris Elba is in the running to play Bedivere, the right-hand man of Arthur’s father who becomes the young king’s mentor. "King Arthur" is set for release July 22, 2016. »

New Poster and Trailer Released for Seventh Son

28 August 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

After a few release date shuffles, and one really fun looking trailer, marketing for Seventh Son is finally kicking back in.  Today brings an all new trailer for the fantasy film, along with a poster to boot.  Come inside to check them both out! 

About this time last year, marketing on Seventh Son began in earnest and people were preparing themselves for the sword and sorcery film in October 2013...Then the film got pushed to January 2014.  No big deal, but then all of a sudden Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. parted ways.  The film was in flux and it was pulled from the release schedule (because no one knew what to do with it).  Along came Universal Pictures who became Legendary's new partner and the film was given a new release date of February 6, 2015.  

Many fans were disheartened by the fact the film was being pushed back by over a year and, »

Charlie Hunnam Is "King Arthur" For Guy Ritchie

27 August 2014 6:44 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam has apparently emerged as director Guy Ritchie’s choice and is said to be in final negotiations play King Arthur in Ritchie's film about the Arthurian legend at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Jamie Dornan was previously suggested as a potential candidate a few weeks ago, but his commitment to the "Fifty Shades Of Grey" franchise may have gotten in the way of his casting. If that report was true then it's an interesting bit of irony considering Dornan replaced Hunnam in the lead role in 'Grey'. It has also been reported that Henry Cavill and Jai Courtney read for the part.

Joby Harold wrote the current version of the script for what is being seen as a potential franchise. Akiva Goldsman, Tory Tunnell and Lionel Wigram are producing.

"Luther" and "Thor" actor Idris Elba is also reportedly circling the role of Merlin, whilst Elizabeth Olsen »

Charlie Hunnam Will Play King Arthur for Guy Ritchie; Elizabeth Olsen Female Frontrunner

27 August 2014 6:04 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve known for a while that Guy Ritchie has been trying to get his version of King Arthur going (though perhaps not as the six feature films originally intended).  Things got a bit more real last month when Idris Elba was cast as a “Merlin-esque figure who trains and mentors Arthur.”  Now it appears as though they may have cast Arthur himself in the form of Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, Sons of Anarchy).  In addition, Elizabeth Olsen (Godzilla, Martha Marcy May Marlene) is said to be the frontrunner for the female lead. The film was written by Joby Harold and will be produced by Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnel.  Warner Bros. will be releasing the film in 2D and 3D on July 22, 2016.  Hit the jump for more on Charlie Hunnam (and maybe Elizabeth Olsen) joining King Arthur. Per Deadline, Hunnam is in "final negotiations" for the role.  Ritchie seems »

Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur Might Be Trained by Idris Elba

21 July 2014 11:56 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

About three months ago it appeared that Guy Ritchie had firmed up King Arthur as his next project with the possibility of the tale stretching into six feature films (which sounds absolutely insane and near impossible to me, but whatever).  There’s still no word on this six movie business (which at this point I’m taking as a sign that this will be a standalone film that will leave the option for sequels open).  But now we have our first bit of casting news. Idris Elba is in talks to join the film, which was written by Joby Harold and will be produced by Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnel.  Warner Bros. will be releasing the film in 2D and 3D on July 22, 2016.  Hit the jump for more on Idris Elba possibly joining King Arthur.

Guy Ritchie's 'King Arthur' Gets Summer 2016 Release Date

10 April 2014 6:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has handed out a July 22, 2016 release date for director Guy Ritchie's King Arthur project. As of now, no other movies have been slated for that date, but it comes right between two 20th Century Fox movies, Ice Age 5 (July 15, 2016) and Planet of the Apes 3 (July 29, 2016).

Back in January, we reported that Guy Ritchie signed on to direct this fantasy re-telling of the King Arthur legend, which will be the first in a proposed six-movie franchise. Joby Harold (Edge of Tomorrow) wrote the script for this first movie, although no plot details were revealed.

The director was actually attached to this project back in 2010, when John Hodge was attached to write the script, but it fell apart when the studio focused its efforts on a similar project, Arthur & Lancelot, which has since been shelved.

Guy Ritchie and Joby Harold are also producing alongside Lionel Wigram, Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell. »

Guy Ritchie to Develop Six-Part King Arthur Film Series for WB

28 January 2014 7:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Art by sandara

Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie is looking to develop an epic King Arthur story that will span the course of six movies for Warner Bros. The studio has been trying to get a King Arthur  film into production for years, but it never went anywhere. Now they are looking to develop it into six films, which would be pretty incredible! 

The script for the first film was written by Toby Harold, and he will also produce alongside Akiva Goldsman, Tory Tunnell, and Lionel Wigram. One of the earlier versions of the script was written by John Hodge (Trainspotting) and it was be based directly on Thomas Mallory's 15th century work Le Morte d'Arthur, which was divided into eight different books. Ritchie was previously attached to that project as well before it fell apart. The fact that Mallory's stories are basically the definitive source material for the legend of Arthur, »

Guy Ritchie eyeing King Arthur for Warner Bros. with Potential for 6-Film Franchise

27 January 2014 3:35 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Hands down one of my favourite directors of all time, Guy Ritchie might well be looking to set up a new franchise with Warner Bros., with the now-frequent collaborators reportedly looking to launch a King Arthur adaptation.

Deadline reports that, after numerous attempts from Warner Bros.’ part to get the film off the ground, Ritchie is now looking to make the movie, which is a very ambitious project for the studio with the potential to launch a long-lasting new franchise.

The movie is set to be a tentpole fantasy retelling of King Arthur, intended to span an impressive six films.

The first script has been written by Joby Harold, writer/director of the crime-thriller, Awake, and more recently executive producer on this year’s Tom Cruise- and Emily Blunt-led blockbuster, Edge of Tomorrow.

Ritchie and producing partner Lionel Wigram had previously been developing a version based on the »

Guy Ritchie Revives A "King Arthur" Saga

27 January 2014 3:30 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. Pictures is having another go at making a "King Arthur" film after several failed attempts, this time though the plan is more ambitious.

Guy Ritchie, who was linked once before, is again said to be in the director's chair for this big-budget fantasy retelling of the Arthur legend.

The plan is for the project to run six films, with Joby Harold having penned the script for the first. Akiva Goldsman, Lionel Wigram and Harold and Tory Tunnell will produce.

Ritchie and Wigram previously developed a version which fell apart when David Dobkin's "Arthur and Lancelot" looked much closer to production. Ultimately that project never came to fruition due to the expense involved.

Guy Ritchie Eyed to Direct King Arthur Franchise Spanning Six Movies

27 January 2014 12:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nearly four years after director Guy Ritchie first became attached to direct a new King Arthur movie for Warner Bros., the project is coming together once again, with the studio eyeing a six-movie franchise.

The original project was written by John Hodge, but it fell apart when Warner Bros. focused its efforts on a different King Arthur project dubbed Arthur & Lancelot for director David Dobkin. Arthur & Lancelot once had Joel Kinnaman and Kit Harington attached to star, but it was shelved when the studio deemed that the $130 million budget was $20 million too high. The studio tried to revive the project again in 2012, when Colin Farrell was attached to star, but we haven't heard anything about Arthur & Lancelot since then.

The studio has also previously considered other King Arthur stories such as a remake of the 1981 adventure Excalibur that had Bryan Singer attached to direct, and a "Harry Potter-syle" take on »

Guy Ritchie Attached To The First Of Six King Arthur Movies

27 January 2014 12:30 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What.s going on at Warner Bros. isn.t very different from what.s happening at every studio. Basically, everything is a franchise, and everything must be stretched to multiple films that allow for one tentpole per year, at the very least. The WB had series. like The Hangover, The Matrix and The Dark Knight reach logical conclusions, but that era is over. Now, everything is a franchise, and the next one is King Arthur, a legend that, for the first time, will be called "interminable." Deadline claims that Guy Ritchie is looking to relaunch a previously-abandoned fantasy retelling of the King Arthur legacy, one that Ritchie, producer Lionel Wigram and writer John Hodge (Trainspotting) departed years ago due to a competing project. This time, the pitch is from writer Joby Harold, an executive producer on the upcoming Edge of Tomorrow who has a number of projects in gestation. This »

Guy Ritchie To Direct The First Of A 6-Movie ‘King Arthur’ Franchise?

27 January 2014 11:56 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Guy Ritchie is currently in production on the massive big-screen adaptation of the TV show The Man From U.N.C.L.E., but it looks like he’s already setting his sights on something even bigger next. The Lock, Stock and Snatch helmer is looking to at least helm the first in a proposed series of six films over at Warner Brothers, the studio where he found huge success with the Sherlock Holmes films.

The first film is written by Joby Harold (Awake), and revolves around the legend of English knight King Arthur, a character that has featured in many movies, most recently in the Jerry Bruckheimer produced film of 2004 starring Clive Owen as the title character. Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman is producing the new film alongside Ritchie’s partner Lionel Wigram.

Guy Ritchie Looking to Revive King Arthur Adaptation at Warner Bros. with Potential 6-Film Franchise

27 January 2014 11:24 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Director Guy Ritchie is looking to kick off another franchise at Warner Bros., and this is one that the studio has been trying to get off the ground for years.  If you’ll remember, Warner Bros. developed a take on the King Arthur legend called Arthur & Lancelot a couple of years ago with David Dobkin (The Change-Up) attached to direct.  The project went so far as to cast Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) and Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) in the lead roles, but WB pulled the plug when the budget got two high.  It looked as if things might pick up when Colin Farrell then entered talks to take on a lead role, but that casting didn’t work out and Dobkin went on to direct Robert Downey Jr. in the upcoming drama The Judge. Now Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie is looking to revive a King Arthur film at the studio, »
