Pirates Mermaid To Become Guinevere

“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and “I Origins” actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey has signed on to play Guinevere in Guy Ritchie’s “Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur” at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Frisbey beat out a number of other famed names vying for the role including Elizabeth Olsen, Felicity Jones and Alicia Vikander.

Guinevere is of course the lover of Arthur (Charlie Hunnam) who ultimately betrays him for Lancelot. It’s not known how much of the story will be incorporated here.

Idris Elba is also onboard the project as Bedivere, the right-hand man to Arthur’s father who serves as a mentor to the young Knight. Joby Harold penned the script and the film is slated for a July 22nd 2016 release.
