Kit Harington Joins 'Arthur and Lancelot'

The 'Games of Thrones' actor doesn't stray to far from his hit series in this Warner Bros. adaptation, starring as King Arthur.

Warner Bros. is collecting quite the interesting cast for their upcoming interpretation of the King Arthur legend Arthur & Lancelot. After nabbing The Killing's Joel Kinnaman as Sir Lancelot, they have now cast Game of Thrones' Kit Harington as King Arthur, himself.

This isn't a far stretch for Kit Harington, as he will once again be wielding a sword as he does on the popular HBO series, where he plays bastard Jon Snow. A few scheduling issues need to be worked out on Harington's side, but once those issues are resolved, filming will begin in early 2012.

The movie is being directed by David Dobkin, who is best known for his comedies, like the recent body-switch raunchfest The Change-Up and the extremely popular Wedding Crashers. Plot details for Arthur & Lancelot have yet to be divulged, but it will be a serious, action heavy adventure inline with Braveheart.

Arthur & Lancelot is in development and stars Colin Farrell. The film is directed by David Dobkin.

    Good for Harrington. Striking while the iron is hot is always smart, and as it concerns the Game of Thrones cast, that iron is scorching right now.
