Guy Ritchie has enough Sherlock Holmes things to keep him busy for a while, but Pajiba says he’s getting another big project at Warner Bros. After WB reassigned him to the hurried-up Holmes sequel, Ritchie has now landed in the court of Camelot. A second Excalibur tale will soon be upon us, joining the remake of the 1981 film currently in development with director Bryan Singer. Both films are being produced at Warner Bros.
Comics scribe Warren Ellis is adapting the script; said to be a ‘Star Wars-like version’. ‘It differs from the prior 751 King Arthur movies in many ways, but perhaps most obviously in that it is very specifically about the gathering of the Knights,’ said Ellis.
