Farrell No “Lancelot”, Allen Wants Blanchett

Colin Farrell, who’d been in early talks to play Lancelot, has now bowed out of David Dobkin’s “Arthur and Lancelot” at Warner Bros. Pictures reports Deadline.

Farrell is no longer attached due to a scheduling conflict – the amount of prep and training required for the action heavy role was simply too much.

In news of another high-profile casting from the same site, Woody Allen is reportedly pursuing both Cate Blanchett and Bradley Cooper to be cast members in his next film project which is eyeing Copenhagen as the setting.

Allen’s reps however would not comment on casting.
