I love the tale of King Arthur. It's a great fantasy story with a rich history and potential. As such, I've been looking forward to seeing how Guy Ritchie would handle the tale, and what he would be changing. Today, cameras have started rolling on the film, and we're able to get a little more information on plot:

Kristen Stewart joins Untitled Kelly Reichardt Project (photo: Kristen Stewart in 'Clouds of Sils Maria') This news bit has been everywhere online, but just in case you've missed it: History-making César Award winner Kristen Stewart has joined three-time Oscar-nominee Michelle Williams and two-time Oscar nominee Laura Dern in an as yet untitled drama set in Montana and to be directed by Kelly Reichardt.* Deadline.com first broke the story last week (Feb. 27, 2015). If all goes as planned, Kristen Stewart will play Boise lawyer Beth, who, nervous after accepting a teaching position in a small Montana town, befriends a local woman, Jamie, auditing her class.† Kelly Reichardt's usual partners Neil Kopp and Anish Savjani are producing the project, which is supposed to consist of a series of vignettes based on short stories by Maile Meloy.

The sequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman" already won't feature Kristen Stewart's Snow White. Now, Deadline reports, most of her seven dwarves are getting axed, too. Only two dwarves will be in the "The Huntsman," though it's unclear exactly which two.
It is known that Nick Frost ("Cuban Fury"), Toby Jones ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier") and Eddie Marsan ("Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows") will definitely not be in the movie. Marsan has a scheduling conflict with his work on Showtime's "Ray Donovan." And Bob Hoskins died last year, so he won't be part of the project either.
"The Huntsman" is a prequel that will show the titular character (Chris Hemsworth) and Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) crossing paths before the events of the first movie. Emily Blunt is on board to play a villain, reportedly a Snow Queen who is Ravenna's sister.

Exclusive: It’s not just Snow White who’ll be missing from Universal’s The Huntsman. Most of the seven dwarves won’t be in the film either, Deadline has learned.
Nick Frost (Cuban Fury), Toby Jones (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows) won’t be reprising their roles as the pint-sized companions from 2012’s Snow White And The Huntsman. That’s partly due to the fact that The Huntsman will only feature two dwarves, and it is still unclear who they will be. Marsan never was in the mix to return due to scheduling conflicts with his role on Showtime’s Ray Donovan, while Frost and Jones appear not to have agreed on terms to return for the second installment.

Robert Downey Jr., Jonny Lee Miller, Ian McKellen and Benedict Cumberbatch have all played Sherlock Holmes in either film or television during the last four years. Now I know that people say that Hollywood reproduces the same shlock year on year, but when it is literally the same character stories recreated, within the time it takes to light a pipe, surely a sense of creativity is missing? As an interesting aside, the two TV Sherlock’s (Miller in Elementary and Cumberbatch in Sherlock) both swapped roles in 2011 throughout a production of Frankenstein, directed by Danny Boyle, at the National Theatre. Who’d have thought that a deformed and manufactured creature would turn into a monster? And I’m not talking about Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
