Working Title Conjures Merlin

ON

Working Title has plans to develop a pitch based on the legendary character Merlin, reports Heat Vision.

Specifics on the film are unknown at this time, but the pitch comes from Jay Basu, writer of the 2005 film Song of Songs and author of the 2003 novel The Stars Can Wait.

Merlin, a key figure in Arthurian legend, has developed into a narrative archetype, referenced in cinema since its earliest days. Though there is currently a BBC television series with the title Merlin, also based on the character, it is unlikely that this film has any connection to that property.
