Slowly, but surely, Guy Ritchie's vision of King Arthur is moving toward production, and Warner Bros. is in talks with Thor star Idris Elba to star in the film. The movie is called Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, and it's a reimagining of the story of Arthur and his knights of Camelot.
If cast, Elba will play a character named Bedivere, who is Arthur's father's right-hand man. He will be the one who teaches Arthur how to lead an army. The studio is still on the hunt for an actor to play Arthur.
Elba and Ritchie previously worked together on RocknRolla back in 2008. This would be their second collaboration. Elba is a great actor, and Ritchie has such a cool, unique style that I'm really excited to see how he handles this legend.
