Though it’s still eight months away, we are getting a first look at Guy Ritchie’s upcoming film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. The film stars Charlie Hunnam as Arthur Pendragon, Eric Bana as his father Uther and Jude Law in the role of Vortigern, the bad guy who kills both Arthur’s father and brother. Vortigern is Arthur’s uncle and has some black magic on his side… so things don’t look good for the future king.
Ritchie gets to check off another English Literary Icon from his to-do list, having already worked on Sherlock Holmes twice with Law. I wonder if we’ll see a James Bond film from him in the future.
