It seems that Guy Ritchie is still interested in filming his version of the legendary King Arthur story, something that he has wanted to do for years.
Deadline have reported that Guy Ritchie still wants to make his King Arthur film. The British director is looking to adapt Joby Harold’s “fantasy retelling” of the King Arthur story, something that is expected to last six films.
Ritchie was supposed to make a King Arthur film based on a script by John Hodge (Trainspotting), but the project never came to fruition. Bryan Singer, director of X-Men, also wanted to develop a movie on Excalibur, yet that never happened too.
Ritchie, who is known for directing Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Sherlock Holmes, Revolver and Swept Away, is currently making the big screen version of The Man from UNCLE starring Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer and Hugh Grant.
More on his King Arthur film (if it ever happens) when we have it.
