Warner Bros. Pictures is having another go at making a “King Arthur” film after several failed attempts, this time though the plan is more ambitious.
Guy Ritchie, who was linked once before, is again said to be in the director’s chair for this big-budget fantasy retelling of the Arthur legend.
The plan is for the project to run six films, with Joby Harold having penned the script for the first. Akiva Goldsman, Lionel Wigram and Harold and Tory Tunnell will produce.
Ritchie and Wigram previously developed a version which fell apart when David Dobkin’s “Arthur and Lancelot” looked much closer to production. Ultimately that project never came to fruition due to the expense involved.
