Guy Ritchie’s ‘King Arthur’ Set for July 2016 Release

10 April 2014 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros.’ “King Arthur” is set to hit theaters on July 22, 2016, becoming the first title to land on that date.

There has been recent speculation that WB will move its still-untitled Batman-Superman project back from May 6, 2016, to the July 22 date to avoid going up against Marvel-Disney’s “Captain America 3.” But domestic distribution topper Dan Fellman recently said that there were no plans to move.

The yet-to-be-filmed “King Arthur” will be directed by Guy Ritchie from Joby Harold’s screenplay. Harold, Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell will produce.

Plot details are under wraps and no cast has been set.

Disney released a “King Arthur” movie in 2004 with Clive Owen in the title role and Jerry Bruckheimer producing. The film grossed $203 million worldwide.

Panel Discussion #30

21 March 2014 5:17 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

I’m flying solo again for this installment of Panel Discussion, taking a look at one of my most-anticipated mini-series in years, Revolutionary War, as well as a couple of new Titan Comics releases – Batman: Arkham #2 and Arrow #3; as well as the independent Irish sci-fi comic Leap.

Revolutionary War is split into a number of different one-shot issues, which tell the over-arching story from a number of perspectives, building into one big-picture of the return of the Marvel UK villains Mys-Tech. Yes, I did say Marvel UK. For those that haven’t been following the announcements regarding this series, Revolutionary War brings back the classic UK-created characters from the 80s and 90s (a number of which were in Marvel’s superb mini-series, Captain Britain and Mi-13) and pits them against their long-time foes – all with a little help from Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D.

London, March 20: Jrr Tolkien's translation of Beowulf, alongside a commentary taken from his lecture notes made throughout the 1930s, will be published in May.

'Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary', which is believed to have inspired Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, is set to be published for the first time almost 90 years after its completion, the Independent reported.

The epic poem marks the first new work by Tolkien published since The Fall of Arthur, an unfinished poem about the legend of King Arthur, published last year. (Ani) »

'Romeo & Juliet,' Robin Hood Musicals Prepping for TV (Exclusive)

26 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the March 7 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Romeo & Juliet: the pop musical? That's the plan for the Boardwalk Entertainment Group, which is partnering with RCA Records to produce classic stories simultaneously as event TV series and staged musicals. In addition to Romeo & Juliet, which is being developed for Fox, Boardwalk is preparing contemporary musical versions based on Robin Hood, King Arthur and Jack the Ripper. Given the success of such small-screen musicals as Fox's long-running Glee and NBC's one-off The Sound of Music Live!, the CAA-repped company,

Simon Cowell returns to save The X Factor - and it's about time

10 February 2014 5:50 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Many of us thought that televised singing competitions had had their day, but the homecoming of The X Factor's leader may change all that

The X Factor has its leader back. On Friday, Simon Cowell announced that his American adventure was over and that he would be returning to the UK to save his beloved singing competition from ruin. It's just like the story of King Arthur, if King Arthur had granny teeth and enjoyed being rude to vulnerable people. Truly, this is wonderful news.

Because, as the past three years have ably proved, a Cowell-free X Factor isn't really The X Factor at all. It's been a directionless mess, especially under the claggy rule of Gary Barlow; a man with a wrongly assumed sense of natural authority, presumably because he got to stand in front of Jason Orange in the dinner queue once. But with Simon Cowell back onboard, »

Ann Carter, Former 1940s Child Actress, Dies at 77

6 February 2014 5:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ann Carter, who was a tiny Veronica Lake lookalike, with similarly flowing blonde hair, when she appeared in two prominent supernatural-themed films of the 1940s, “Cat People” sequel “Curse of the Cat People” and Lake starrer “I Married a Witch,” before polio ended her career, died Jan. 27 in North Bend, Wash., after long bout with ovarian cancer. She was 77.

Carter made 18 films, beginning with a trio of roles, the first two uncredited, in 1941 and 1942: “Last of the Duanes”; “I Married a Witch,” the delightful comedic fantasy in which she briefly played the daughter of Lake and Fredric March; and Norway-set WWII pic “Commandos Strike at Dawn,” starring Paul Muni, for which she was appropriately Nordic-looking.

The 1944 Val Lewton horror film “Curse of the Cat People” was essentially focused on Carter’s character, and she had a substantial role as a child who befriends the dead first wife of her father. »

When hit genre movies become unlikely musicals

1 February 2014 9:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Mark Harrison 3 Feb 2014 - 06:26

Does The Evil Dead make you want to break into song? Can you hum Back To The Future? Why are so many genre films being turned into musicals?

As much as the 2015 of Back To The Future Part II has been lampooned in internet memes, truth can sometimes be stranger than fiction. Is it entirely unreasonable to expect that 30 years from right now, we'll have flying cars, hoverboards and 19 Jaws movies? Maybe, maybe not.

Given their track record for accuracy, it's doubtful that Robert Zemeckis and co could ever have foreseen themselves doing a stage musical version of Back To The Future around the time of the film's 30th anniversary, but sure enough, they announced one last week. It's coming to the West End next year, as we reported here.

The Power Of Love, Earth Angel and Johnny B. Goode are all essential musical moments from the original film, »

10 Biggest Movie And TV News This Week (Feb 1)

31 January 2014 10:55 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

What appeared to be another week of ho-hum news stories was once again dramatically changed by Warner Bros, who continued their tradition of releasing shocking casting information for Batman Vs. Superman on a Friday, giving fans everywhere something to talk about (and loudly debate) over the weekend.

On the other side of the superhero front, we have some Phase 3 news from Marvel, and got our first (albeit cringe-worthy) glimpses at some characters from X-Men: Days of Future past. And for those not interested in mutants and caped crusaders, we have word about several projects including yet another King Arthur adaptation (though this one is huge), a third kidnap spree for Liam Neeson, info about M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie, and our first glimpse at the costume Peter Capaldi will be donning as the Twelfth Doctor later this year.

Is Guy Ritchie the right director for the King Arthur epic?

31 January 2014 3:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Ritchie may be set to direct Warner Bros's six-film King Arthur saga, but could Peter Jackson, Guillermo del Toro or Kenneth Branagh bring something better to the table?

There are very few classic swords and sorcery properties that seem ripe for revival on the big screen: Peter Jackson's splendid Lord of the Rings trilogy finally wiped out memories of Ralph Bakshi's brave but half-finished 1978 effort. There will never be a Conan movie as fabulous as John Milius's Conan the Barbarian, from 1982, and it ought to be a good 20 years before we have to see another Harry Potter movie. But it's easy to argue that there has never been a definitive movie about King Arthur, so the news this week that we're about to get a six-film Arthurian saga from Warner Bros really ought to be cause for celebration.

The question, however, is whether Guy Ritchie is the »

Can historically inaccurate movies still win Oscars?

30 January 2014 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Most of this year's Oscar contenders are based on historical events – and there are academics waiting to pounce on every slip-up and blunder. But there is more to a great movie than getting the facts straight

• Top 10 biopics

Alex von Tunzelmann's Reel History series

It's Oscars time again, and this year many of the big contenders have one thing in common. Two thirds of the contenders for best film are based on historical events. History also picks up four out of five best actor nominations, two out of five best actresses, and three out of five directors. So fierce has the competition among historical films become that it was reported that academic "history assassins" were paid handsomely by marketing consultants to spot errors in other studios' films. These errors would then be filtered out subtly through blogs, undermining rivals' Oscar hopes.

This Short Film Just Won Sundance And It Wants to Change Your Life

29 January 2014 12:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Why Watch? Robbin is out to change lives, admire great skylights and assure you that the snake attacking you isn’t poisonous. Simply put, he’s a good dude. All he wants to do is show you a brief presentation about his religion and expose you to the truth about your personal DNA structure. You’d let him in your house, right? He seems legit. This wondrously bizarre short film goes door to door in a Captain Eo costume, offering a bit of psychedelia and a dent for skepticism. Matthew Lessner’s Chapel Perilous (which may be a reference to King Arthur or an occult psychological state) takes an inch to move forward, but once the wacky ball starts rolling, it explores some radical, hilarious territory while grabbing you by the jaw. A literal crowd pleaser, it won the Audience Award at Sundance this year. Check it out while you still can: What Will It Cost? About »

Guy Ritchie to Spend Extended Amount of Time LARPing in Forest With 6-Film King Arthur Franchise

28 January 2014 12:30 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Long ago, in a time called 2011, development began at Warner Bros. on a film called Arthur & Lancelot. Set to star Game of Thrones‘ Kit Harrington and Robocop‘s Joel Kinnaman in the leads alongside Colin Farrell and directed by David Dobkin, it was to be a retelling of the King Arthur tale, but the project ultimately fell through due to budgetary problems; $130m was a bit much for the sword in the stone. Even prior to that, Warner Bros. gave the go ahead on a 2010 remake of the 1981 film Excalibur, with Bryan Singer at the helm — which also failed to get off the ground. Now Guy Ritchie, who had once attempted to make his own film with a script by Trainspotting writer John Hodge (it fell through when Dobkin’s movie looked like it was going to get made), is teaming with the studio to get back in the sword business with a King Arthur story on »

Is Guy Ritchie Doing a Six-Film Series About King Arthur?

28 January 2014 9:45 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Maybe. Maybe not. According to Deadline, they’re “hearing” that Guy Ritchie, the man who gave us kooky British gangsters and Robert Downey Jr.’s “Sherlock Holmes,” may or may not be teaming up with his buds at Warner Bros. for a “tentpole fantasy retelling of the Arthur legend, meant to span six films.” Sheesh. That’s pretty ambitious. Hollywood can barely make one good movie, they’re already going for six? That’s a tad stretching it, doncha think, Hollywood? Lalaland has been hot for King Arthur for a while now, but I don’t recall anyone getting anything up and running since Antoine Fuqua’s “King Arthur” in 2004. That movie starred Keira Knightley and Clive Owen. One Arthurian tale that almost happened was “Arthur & Lancelot,” which for some time had “Game of Thrones’” Kit Harington and Joel Kinnaman attached, but the budget was too high for Warner and the movie was scrapped. »

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 to Direct First of Six King Arthur Films

28 January 2014 5:32 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Four year ago it was reported that Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch) signed on to direct a "King Arthur" film for Warner Bros. At the time, Ritchie was working on the script with John Hodge (The Beach). The project eventually fell apart, but now comes word that it's back and has a new ambitious plan associated with it. According to Deadline, Ritchie is once again attached to direct "King Arthur," which will be a big-budget movie that's means to span six films. Joby Harold (Awake) already wrote the script for the first installment. Project aims to be a re-imagining of the legend of Arthur, believed to have been a 6th century king who defended Britain against Saxon invaders. Key source material will be Thomas Mallory's "Le Morte d'Arthur," published in 1485 as a compilation of French and English tales. »

Camelot, stocks and two smoking cauldrons: Guy Ritchie set for King Arthur film

28 January 2014 3:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Sherlock Holmes director is said to be eyeing a new attempt to turn the Arthurian legends into a movie franchise

Guy Ritchie is in talks to direct a film based on the legend of King Arthur which could be the first of a planned double trilogy of movies, reports Deadline.

Ritchie, these days considered a safe pair of hands in Hollywood following the blockbuster success of his pair of Sherlock Holmes movies, would work from a screenplay by Awake's Joby Harold. The project is being put together at studio Warner Bros, which has been trying to deliver an Arthurian film franchise for a number of years.

One take, titled Arthur and Lancelot, would have seen Game of Thrones' Kit Harington and the Us The Killing's Joel Kinnaman in the title roles. It was shelved over budget concerns. Another idea was to remake 1981's Excalibur, with X-Men »

WB Wants Guy Ritchie For A Six Film King Arthur Tentpole

28 January 2014 1:55 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

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. »
