Disney Plans “Sword in the Stone” Film

Disney is continuing its quest to seemingly remake all of its animated movies into live-action features with the announcement today of a new take on the 1963 animated fantasy “The Sword in the Stone”.

Loosely based on the T.H. White’s novel of the same name and part of White’s multi-book series “The Once and Future King,” ‘Stone’ follows a young King Arthur who is being mentored by Merlin.

“Game of Thrones” writer-producer Brian Cogman has been set to pen the script for the film which Brigham Taylor will produce. Taylor is also attached to the Jon Favreau-directed remake of “The Jungle Book” at the studio.
