While we wait for Guy Ritchie's take on the spy genre with THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E., Entertainment Weekly had some details to share regarding the upcoming KING ARTHUR film starring Charlie Hunnam (PACIFIC RIM). As Hunnam puts it, "[Arthur's] a little bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler. He’s a street kid. There’s definitely a harder edge to him than people would imagine. It’s sort of classic Guy Ritchie stuff.” If you think this will follow in the footsteps of his SHERLOCK HOLMES flicks, you can expect some of that mixed with some fantastical elements. EW states that the film will feature " giant snakes, massive war elephants, and a monstrous viking-like creature known as The Nemesis." Check out Hunnam as the titular Arthur on EW's cover!

Guy Ritchie on his take for King Arthur:

I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland. The two qualities make rather compatible bed companions. Unfortunately, they’re not interesting to watch. Luke Skywalker was always the most uninteresting character in Star Wars because he’s the good guy. Good guys are boring.

Alright Ritchie, you lost me at the "Skywalker was always the most uninteresting character." Whiny? Sure, I'll give ya that, but his arc from the first movie to JEDI always struck me as a great spin on the coming-of-age tale. Ya know, with the inclusion of space battles and lazer swords and whatnot. It's been some time since Ritchie has really impressed but to his credit, THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. looks like a lot of fun. Let's see what he can do with this Arthur business.

I see his sword is as big as mine!

I am just glad it is not another realistic take and we get Giant snakes, war elephants, and a monstrous viking-like creature.

He's not wrong. Luke IS the least interesting character in the original Star Wars. But that's like saying Papa Ron's pizza is not as good as Pizza Hut. It's still pizza, not a pile of turd with ketchup and cheese on it. Which, is probably the most accurate description of Hayden Christensen's Anakin Skywalker.

Ever since I saw John Boorman's Excalibur, that is the bar against which all King Arthur movies and TV shows will be measured. So much of the legend made it into that story, Uthor, Morgana, Lancelot's affair with Guinevere, the Lady in the Lake, and the Holy Grail. Not to mention Nigel Terry (who passed away earlier this year) convincingly played Arthur at three different stages of his life. That said, Excalibur is still quite dated, and it's been my hope that one day someone could come along

That said, Excalibur is still quite dated, and it's been my hope that one day someone could come along and do a revisionist Arthurian movie that still hit all the mandatory points Boorman did. Guy Ritchie's movie sounds quite a bit different, but he's got a planned six, and Charlie Hunnam looks like a battle-hardened king, so I'm very curious what could be in store for us with this one.

Interesting take on the sword, but he looks more Viking then Knightly, but I guess if you really did go back to the 6th century that would be the case.
