Director Guy Ritchie offers up the first picture of Charlie Hunnam (“Sons of Anarchy”, Pacific Rim) as the title star in Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur as production has just begun on what Warner Bros. hopes will be their very own medieval franchise. Astrid Berges-Frisbey stars as Guinevere and Jude Law will play the film’s villain, Vortigern. Additionally, Eric Bana will paly Arthur’s father Uther Pendragon, Djimon Hounsou is Resistance leader Bedivere, Aidan Gillen (“Game of Thrones”) is Goosefat Bill and Mikael Persbrandt is rumored for a role.
The official synopsis goes as follows:
Set for a July 22, 2016 release, the pic was written by Joby Harold whose only real film credit is the rather abysmal Awake, which I live blogged way back in the day if you’re interested in getting a glimpse at some of my earlier “work”.
