Sexy actor Charlie Hunnam will star as the legendary King Arthur in the upcoming film ‘Knights of the Round Table’ by Guy Ritchie. The film also stars Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey as Guinevere, Jude Law, Djimon Honsou and Katie McGrath.
Recently, the film has seen its release date pushed forward from July 22, 2016, to February 17, 2017. Why? What’s the reason?
The ambitious film wants to portray a different Arthur. “I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make the character of King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland,” Guy Ritchie commented to EW, and he added that “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.”
Are good boys boring? What do you think? Charlie Hunnam also said that this new version of Arthur is going to be “a little bit rough around the edges.” “He’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler,”
The source material for this movie is Thomas Mallory’s “Le Morte d’Arthur,” published in 1485. And they have planned a series of six movies. Of course, the success of the first film will determine the destiny of this plan.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
