Arthur and Lancelot may be dead at Warner Bros. but the history-rich film studio is not abandoning their quest to turn the legend of King Arthur to a bankable film franchise. Deadline reports that Guy Ritchie is currently considering a lead role in getting a 6-part King Arthur fantasy series for WB. The genesis of the project comes from the mind of Joby Harold (Awake, Edge of Tomorrow) who has already written the script for the first movie. Little is known about the project but it will reportedly reintroduce the magical elements of Arthurian lore after prior films sought to tell a more realistic version of the legend. Prior to this current attempt, WB had Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) and Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) starring as the leads in Arthur and Lancelot and was close to securing Gary Oldamn (The Dark Knight Rises) to play Merlin. »
