Though Charlie Hunnam is about to ride off into the sunset with the final season of his FX series Sons of Anarchy this fall, the actor has emerged as director Guy Ritchie's top choice to play the title character in Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur. We reported last month that Idris Elba is playing Bedivere, the right-hand man of Arthur's father who teaches the young man how to fight and how to lead an army.
Charlie Hunnam is in final negotiations for the project, which will be the first in a series of six movies that we first reported on back in January. Joby Harold (Edge of Tomorrow) wrote the script for the first movie, which lays the groundwork for this epic six-movie franchise. No story details have been released thus far.
As Sons of Anarchy enters its seventh and final season, star Charlie Hunnam continues to look towards the big screen to put himself on the map as a leading actor in Hollywood. After being courted for the role of Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey, the Pacific Rim star is now being eyed to lead a very different project.
According to Deadline, Hunnam is Guy Ritchie’s top choice to play King Arthur in the Warner Bros. movie which is being developed by Joby Harold as a franchise which could be made up of as many as six movies. Harold penned the movie and Akiva Goldsman is set to produce. Hunnam meanwhile is in final negotiations for the role.

The fourth and final season of the drama series The Killing, available exclusively on Netflix, wraps up previously unresolved story threads and takes viewers on a journey through a new crime. Detective Linden (Mireille Enos) and Detective Holder (Joel Kinnaman) struggle to manage the fall-out from their shocking actions at the end of last season, while also trying to solve the murder of a picture perfect family, survived only by the son, Kyle Stansbury (Tyler Ross), who was shot in the head during the massacre and left with no clear memory of what happened. The season also stars Joan Allen, as Colonel Margaret Rayne, the headmaster of the all-boys military academy that Kyle attends, Sterling Beaumon and Levi Meaden, as two of the other students there, and Gregg Henry. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Tyler Ross (who gives a terrific, heartbreaking and haunting performance as Kyle Stansbury »

Yes, "If I Stay" is yet another teen romance based on a young adult book. I will disclose that I read and loved Gayle Forman's best-selling book about a brilliant young cellist faced with the ultimate life-and-death decision after her entire family is involved in a devastating car accident. Mia Hall (Chloe Moretz in her first romantic lead role) is an invisible spirit watching over her unconscious body in an intensive care unit. As she ponders what the future holds for her (is she headed for Juilliard, as she once hoped, or should she just give in to the lure of letting go), Mia spends most of her time remembering what she loved most about her pre-crash life: her family, her best friend, and her rather amazing boyfriend Adam (Jamie Blackley).
Director R.J. Cutler's take on the supernatural teen romance changes a few things up while remaining faithful »

Wme has signed The Killing‘s Joel Kinnaman, the agency said in a wide announcement. The Stockholm-bred thesp crossed over stateside as the street-tough Detective Holder on AMC’s cop show and starred in MGM and Sony’s RoboCop reboot earlier this year. The Killing was revived for a fourth season on Netflix this month. Kinnaman, previously with CAA, stars opposite Liam Neeson in WB’s 2015 crime actioner Run All Night and has Summit/Lionsgate’s Child 44 with Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, and Noomi Rapace opening in April. The fast-ascending actor first broke out in his native Sweden thanks to roles in the Johan Falk film series and Daniel Espinosa’s Snabba Cash (Easy Money) trilogy. He also appeared in Espinosa’s English-language crime pic Safe House, Lola Versus, and David Fincher’s The Girl With THe Dragon Tattoo. Kinnaman continues to be repped by manager Shelley Browning at Magnolia and attorney Hansen Jacobson. »

DirecTV is coming Full Circle again, renewing the relationship drama for a 10-episode second season, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Each season follows a group of adults whose lives are unknowingly intertwined. The series’ first season, which was set at a restaurant and written by Neil Labute, featured a cast of TV vets that included David Boreanaz (Bones), Kate Walsh (Private Practice), Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), Billy Campbell (The Killing), Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) and Robin Weigert (Deadwood).
There are plenty of familiar Stephen King adaptations in the works (including a prequel and sequel to The Shining), but A Good Marriage somehow flew under all of our radars. It’s based on one of the author’s many short stories, and King actually adapted the story himself (as he did for Pet Semetary and Cell) for this movie.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, King had this to say about adapting his story:
“I’ve seen enough movies adapted from my work to know that the things that work the best are the things that aren’t too long and aren’t too short. Some of the stories, when they get expanded, they go in the wrong direction, and with the novels, if they’re really expansive, a lot of times it’s like sitting around a suitcase and trying to get everything in. A Good Marriage is about 100 pages long, »

Question: Anything at all on the final season of Sons of Anarchy? —Jennifer
Ausiello: Tara’s spirit will loom large throughout the final 13 episodes, but Maggie Siff won’t be embodying that spirit. Asked if the actress might appear in a recreated flashback or as a vision to her widowed hubby, series creator Kurt Sutter tells me, “I’ve never done flashbacks or dream sequences on this show. They tend to pull me out of the reality of a show like this. »
Screen Media Films has released the first A Good Marriage trailer and poster for the upcoming thriller, written by Stephen King. Based on King’s short story of the same name, the film stars Joan Allen and Anthony Lapaglia as a seemingly happily married couple whose relationship is tested when Allen discovers that her husband may in fact be a notorious serial killer. It looks like a decidedly Stephen King-esque story, which is fitting since he also wrote the screenplay. I was recently reminded of Joan Allen’s brilliance while finishing up the final season of The Killing on Netflix, and combined with the film’s pulpy premise, she provides a nice point of attraction for A Good Marriage. Hit the jump to check out the Good Marriage trailer and poster. Directed by Peter Askin, the film also stars Kristen Connolly and Stephen Lang. A Good Marriage will be »

More casting news has arrived for the Sony PlayStation Network adaptation of the Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming-created comic series Powers as Sharlto Copley and Michelle Forbes have signed on for active duty!
Variety reports that Copley (pictured) will play Christian Walker, described as a dapper and charismatic character with a darkness and violence right at the surface but with a sense of buried integrity. Walker has the dissolute air of a faded rock star and the body of a battered heavyweight.
Once possessed of super-powers, Walker lost those abilities in a battle with a super-human mass killer. A faded hero, he’s now a detective who works with law enforcement, using his singular expertise to investigate crimes in the Powers community.
