Game Of Thrones' Kit Harrington Tapped For The Role Of King Arthur In Arthur And Lancelot

<i>Game Of Thrones</i>' Kit Harrington Tapped For The Role Of King Arthur In <i>Arthur And Lancelot</i>

It seems WB have signed up Jon Snow himself to swing a sword once again in their take on the Arthurian Legend. Variety broke the story, details past the jump..

"You know nothing Jon Snow". Well he knows he will be playing one of the most famous heroes in fantasy literature. And thanks to the lads at Variety we do too. Apparently Kit Harrington, who impressed as Eddard Stark's bastard in HBO's Game Of Thrones is Warner Bros' choice to armor up as King Arthur in Arthur And Lancelot.



From Showblitz..

Joel Kinniman is already in place to play Lancelot with David Dobkin on board to write and direct. Kinniman and Harrington were said to be the early front-runners for both roles, and while Kinniman’s test was good enough to get an early offer, Harrington had to re-test, eventually beating out the likes of Sam Claflin and his GAME OF THRONES co-star Richard Maddon.


WB acquired the Script for the movie for $2 million dollars after a bidding war with several other studios. The story is said to focus on how the legend of the Knights of the Round Table began, and centers on Arthur and Lancelot's friendship and the creation of the concept of Democracy by Arthur. The movie is being fast-tracked by Warners, which has shelved two other similar projects also in development: Bryan Singer's remake of John Boorman's 1981 movie Excalibur; and Guy Ritchie's reinvention of the myth alongside Warren Ellis, also titled Excalibur.

Arthur And Lancelot is set for release March 15, 2013.
