Ridley Scott in talks for Merlin saga

Ridley Scott is a man who never takes breaks, and as such, he is always adding titles to his pile of films that are slated to be made. He proved himself to be a tireless filmmaker when he finished reshooting All The Money In The World after having to cut Kevin Spacey out of the film and replacing him with Christopher Plummer. Scott spent nine days effectively erasing the disgraced Spacey out of the film and substituting his scenes with that of Plummer’s. So as we wait to see what Scott has in store for us next, the director looks to be adding to his filmmaking slate with Disney.

According to new reports, Scott will be collaborating with Disney to work on an adaptation of The Merlin Saga, which centers on the legendary wizard’s early years before he became the advisor to King Arthur. More On the story below.

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword review header

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

The legend of King Arthur has existed for well over a millennia, and as such has given way to countless interpretations of stories, TV shows, and films. So while we may be familiar with the name, there will always be a new way to look at the legend, a new way to tell the story, and a new way to rake in the cash. So just as superheroes are popular now, Guy Ritchie is giving audiences a reason to look at iconic literary characters. But while his previous efforts from the Sherlock Holmes films to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. may have been richly stylized and highly entertaining, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword suffers from a serious case of style over substance.

Check out the full review below.

Every kid I knew grew up loving the Arthurian legends. I’m still a little enthralled by them, mainly because of the rousing adventures that dealt with swords and sorcery. From Sir Thomas Mallory to T.H. White to Mary Stewart to Marion Zimmer Bradley, these stories have been told and retold from a variety of viewpoints over the years. So it should come as no surprise that we now get an even more modern take in The Once and Future Queen #1.

Starz's Camelot - Sword in the Stone

King Arthur is going through a bit of a renaissance. The character will appear in three separate films in the next few years in Guy Richie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight, and Disney’s live-action reimagining of the The Sword in the Stone.

Each of these films will tell a different story of the legendary character, and being such a legend, his story also deserves to be told on the small screen. A new report confirms that Fox is currently developing a King Arthur procedural series called Camelot. Yup. TV is at that point of scraping the bottom of the barrel. More on the story below.
