Whatever your opinion on the last King Arthur ten years ago, it seems the old story is getting another rejig, this time by ‘Snatch’ director Guy Ritchie.
The film, which will be released in 3D and 2D, was penned by Joby Harold. Ritchie is also acting as producer with his partner Lionel Wigram, Akiva Goldsman via his Weed Road shingle and Harold and Tory Tunnell through Safehouse Pictures.
Ritchie has been working on a King Arthur film with Warner Bros. since 2010. While it looked like that project had fallen by the wayside, it now seems that things are back on track. Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures have set a July 22, 2016.
A nice change of direction for Ritchie, should be interesting…
