Back in January, we reported that Warner Bros. put their medieval adventure Arthur & Lancelot on the shelf, a project which was originally set for release March 15, 2013. Today we have word that Colin Farrell is in talks to star as one of the title characters.
Colin Farrell is in talks for Arthur & Lancelot
Kit Harington and Joel Kinnaman were previously attached to star, but both actors had to drop out due to schedule conflicts, once the project was put on hold. Insiders suggest that Kit Harington and Joel Kinnaman lacked the star power Warner Bros. was looking for, which may be one of the reasons Arthur & Lancelot was put on hold. It isn't known which of the title characters Colin Farrell will play.
David Dobkin is directing Arthur & Lancelot from his own screenplay. Little is known about the story, although it is said to be an action epic in the vein of Braveheart.
Although the project is moving forward once again, it still isn't known when shooting may start, or when Warner Bros. is targeting Arthur & Lancelot for release.
