Guy Ritchie and Warner Bros. Consider Six-Film King Arthur Franchise

Source: ComingSoon

January 27, 2014

It was back in 2010 when word first broke that Sherlock Holmes and crumpledung helmer Guy Ritchie was interested in bringing to the big screen a faithful adaptation of Arthurian legend. Although the project seemed to fall by the wayside, Deadline today reports that attempts are being made to get it back on track and that plans for a franchise based on King Arthur's exploits may ultimately become six separate feature films.

Joby Harold has drafted the script for the first film and will produce alongside Akiva Goldsman, Tory Tunnell and Lionel Wigram. An earlier iteration of the project was to feature a screenplay by John Hodge (Trainspotting) and was to be based directly on Thomas Mallory's 15th century work "Le Morte d'Arthur" (which itself is divided into eight different books). As Mallory's compilation of tales is pretty much the definitive source material for Arthurian legend, it's a good bet that Harold's screenplay is similarly influenced.

Ritchie's next, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., stars Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, Jared Harris, Hugh Grant and Luca Calvani and is planned to hit theaters later this year.

April 10, 2014

Warner Bros. Pictures has set Guy Ritchie's King Arthur for release on July 22, 2016. The project is said to be a re-imagining of the Arthurian legend, with the primary influence being Thomas Mallory's "Le Morte d'Arthur," published in 1485.

Scripted by Joby Harold, King Arthur is the first film to claim that particular release date, arriving one week after 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios' Ice Age 5 and one week before Matt Reeves' untitled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes sequel.

Ritchie's next film, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., meanwhile, is scheduled for release on January 16, 2015. It stars Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, Jared Harris, Hugh Grant and Luca Calvani and adapts for the big screen the classic 1960's spy series.
