Guy Ritchie's KING ARTHUR Coming In 2016
We had word that Warner Bros. wanted the Sherlock Holmes director for a 6-movie King Arthur saga back in January, and now Variety confirm that we'll be getting a first one at any rate, as a 2016 release date has been set. Read on for more.
According to Variety, Warner Bros.’ King Arthur is set to hit theaters on July 22, 2016. Guy Ritchie (Snatch, Sherlock Holmes, Swept Away) will direct, with Joby Harold (Awake, Edge Of Tomorrow) on script duty. It was rumored that WB were looking at Ritchie to bring a six-film take on the classic tale to the screen, but Variety make no mention of that in their report. There have been various movies, comics and tv shows based around Arthurian legend over the years, including the underrated Camelot and the mediocre Disney produced flick with Clive Owen in the title role. The most successful take was arguably John Boorman's Excalibur back in 1981. Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell will produce, no cast is in place yet.
