    Aidan Gillen has been cast opposite Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey and Djimon Hounsou in director Guy Ritchie's King Arthur.
    Hunnam is in the title role, with Gillen as Goosefat Bill, Bergès-Frisbey as Guinevere, Hounsou as Bedivere, Law as Vortigern and Bana as King Uther Pendragon.
    Filming has begun at Warner Bros Studios in Leavesden in the UK, with location shooting to take place in Wales and Scotland.

    No Merlin or Morgana cast yet (Gary Oldman has been rumoured for Merlin)


    I am looking forward to seeing what Ritchie's take on this tale will be

    Oy! Lancelot, get yer mitts off my missus you MUPPET!

    Is this not already filming? Kurt Sutter retweeted Richies pic of Charlie Hunnam as Arthur in a forest the other day.

    EDIT. So it has, from the article.

    Would they not want to hurry up and get the parts cast so?

    The blurb about Arthur being streetwise makes me cringe.

    Vinny Jones as Merlin I reckon ;)

    Film is called King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Didn't create new thread as this one already existed even though last post was over a year ago

    That's some cast!

    Looks like typical Guy Ritchie - style over substance.

    Out next March.

    Yeah my first reaction was that the effects looked a bit odd, cheap in some places, not in others. Then so many in the cast was what caught my attention.

    That trailer Does.Not.Look.Good. Highly reminiscent of Game of Thrones, but without the wit, ultraviolence and bewbs: sure, what good is that?

    You know nothing Guy Ritchie.

    Of course the actual finished film could be better than what is promised there - a long way and much post production is yet to come - but something about King Arthur sporting an oh so current undercut fills me with foreboding for the whole project.

    I think it looks kind of interesting actually. Looks like there is a bit of quirkiness there that I like in Ritchie's films even the ones that didnt fare so well over their complete running time. I don't really get the Game of Thrones feel about it either to be honest, I think every medieval or medieval-fantasy film is forever doomed to be compared to GOT, even in just look, regardless of content.

    The dialogue at the start is like 'Lock Stock and the Round Table' :pac:

    Guy Ritchie is directing. That's pretty much a guarantee its muck.

    For some reason I could have swore Guy Ritchie already made a King Arthur movie.

    Love the Zep song in it but jeezus it looks like Michael Bay and James Wan had an over 9,000 level child that wants all of the monies. Oh and that's a BIG Oliphant? Meh but will watch to see if it is as bad as that Last Airbender thingy......coz Arthur is now an Airbender yeah? Ammirite?

    The Clive Owen one was done by Antoine Fuqua and I think that was the one last one done

    I really enjoy the Fuqua / Owen version, I'll always watch it when it's on (doesn't seem to be often nowadays). Great cast too, Owen, Skarsgaard, Edgerton, Mikkelson, Stevenson, Winsome.

    The first reviews are out. Ow.

    How many sequels were they planning for this again?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,703 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    The impression I've gotten from reviews is that it's a bog standard King Arthur film. Nothing majorly new except Guy Ritchie adding his way of doing special effects and all that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,723 ✭✭✭ El Rifle


    Jesus what an absolutely horrible looking film. An American cast as Englands most famous King, still talking in an American accent, with gelled back hair. Loads of explosions before gunpowder was even invented, and teleporting sword fights.

    What a great thing for film the Chinese market is. We'll have Jesus driving muscle cars soon.

    As for Guy Ritchie he was on Rogans podcast the other day. Interesting guy, but he's phoning it in for cash now. Making films for his kids to enjoy. He said as much himself. Madonna must have sucked the life out of him

    Charlie Humman is English.

    Charlie Humman is English.

    Ha! He sounded like Jax Teller in the bit of dialogue in the trailer!

    Edit: Of course, that skit was made before Gibson actually announced a sequel to Passion of the Christ
