Guy Ritchie tweeted the first photo of himself and Hunnam from the Knights of the Round Table set in the U.K. According to the official synopsis, it’s a “surprisingly gritty take on the classic tales.” Hmmm. I’m kind of giving that the side-eye, but whatever. Charlie Hunnam! Guy Ritchie! Period costumes! I’m still totally down. Here’s what IMDB has to say:
The bold new story introduces a streetwise young Arthur who runs the back alleys of Londonium with his gang, unaware of the life he was born for until he grasps hold of the sword Excalibur—and with it, his future. Instantly challenged by the power of Excalibur, Arthur is forced to make some hard choices. Throwing in with the Resistance and a mysterious young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern, who stole his crown and murdered his parents, and become King.
Hunnam is the only actor in that particular still, but the cast has a lot of notable names. Astrid Bergès-Frisbey (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) is Guinevere; Jude Law is villainous Vortigern; Eric Bana is Arthur’s dad Uther Pendragon; Djimon Hounsou is Resistance leader Bedivere; and Aidan Gillen is Goosefat Bill.
