King Arthur Begins Production, First On Set Photo!

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures’ announced production has begun on the epic King Arthur fantasy adventure with Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam as Arthur. The cast also includes Astrid Bergès-Frisbey as Guinevere, Djimon Hounsou as Resistance leader Bedivere, Aidan Gillen as Goosefat Bill, Jude Law as Vortigern, and Eric Bana as Arthur’s father, King Uther Pendragon.

Guy Ritchie is directing from a script by Joby Harold (Awake). Ritchie is also a producer on the action adventure film along with Harold, Lionel Wigram, Steve Clark-Hall, Akiva Goldsman, and Tory Tunnell.

Warner Bros Pictures is planning a July 22, 2016 theatrical release for the King Arthur film (previously known as Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur), with filming taking place in Wales, Scotland, and at Warner Bros Studios Leavesden.

The Plot:

“The bold new story introduces a streetwise young Arthur who runs the back alleys of Londonium with his gang, unaware of the life he was born for until he grasps hold of the sword Excalibur—and with it, his future. Instantly challenged by the power of Excalibur, Arthur is forced to make some hard choices. Throwing in with the Resistance and a mysterious young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern, who stole his crown and murdered his parents, and become King.”

Eric Bana to Play King Arthur’s Father in ‘Knights of the Round Table’

Eric Bana to Play King Arthur’s Father in ‘Knights of the Round Table’

Eric Bana is set to play Uther, the father of King Arthur, in Guy Ritchie’s “Knights of the Round Table” for Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow.

Charlie Hunnam will play Arthur, with Astrid Berges-Frisbey playing Guinevere. Jude Law is also in talks for the role of the villain.

Ritchie will direct with a script from Joby Harold. Ritchie and Harold are also producing along with Lionel Wigram, Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, though the pic is set to open on July 22, 2016. Niija Kuykendall and Cate Adams are overseeing for the studio.

The studio hopes the film can kick-start another franchise for Warner Bros., with the story to be told over six installments.

For Bana, the role isn’t the biggest, but the studio and Ritchie were always looking for a big name for the part to make a splash for the time he is onscreen, originally going to Liam Neeson before circling back with Bana.
