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.

Now comes word that Singer is piling projects on to his plate wit the announcement that he is also developing a remake of the 1981 film Excalibur for Warner Brothers. Just the same as with the the Galactica project, Singer will produce the remake, with the opportunity to direct on the table.

The film will be another one of the countless takes on the tale of King Arthur, the legendary sword set in stone, the love affair between his wife Guenevere and Sir Lancelot, the Knights of the Round Table and their quest for the fabled Holy Grail, and the arrival of Arthur’s evil son Mordred, birthed by his half-sister, Morgana. All of this overseen by the powerful wizard Merlin.

An extended preview of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ran on Sunday night during the premiere of the NBC miniseries Merlin.

The clip focuses on the dark elements of this sixth Harry Potter story, which sees the dark forces of the magical world crossover in our world, revealing themselves to “Muggles.” There’s also an emphasis on Harry himself as the “chosen one.” Those who know the story, know there’s a entire subplot on the light side, with all the romance amongst the teenagers of Hogwarts. There’s only a touch of that in this preview, which contains new footage from the film.

Video: Want More Fantasy On TV? ‘Merlin’ Miniseries Comes To NBC This Month

The Movie God   |  @   |

On June 21, 2009 at 8PM EST, the hit BBC miniseries Merlin premieres in the U.S. on NBC — and not a moment too soon. We live in a world where TV is ruled by disgusting amounts of cop/authority dramas and hospital dramas and what we really need, is some good old fantasy! With Merlin, we will get just that.

As it is known, Merlin is the legendary wizard who is most-often associated with the tales of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table in Camelot. The truth to the character is hard to even put into words. He was first written about in the year 1136 and has shown up in an infinite amount of movies, TV shows, cartoons, games, artworks, and who knows how many other things. Quite simply put: when you think of a wizard, you most likely think of the greatest wizard of them all: Merlin.

So as not to be unoriginal, the creators of this 13-part miniseries, starring Buffy‘s Anthony Head and Michelle Ryan (from the Bionic Woman reboot), have basically rebooted the world and the character to offer many fresh, wonderful new adventures to existing fans, and any new ones that may come.

Click on over to the other side for the miniseries description and to watch the show’s trailer and a bunch of video previews, behind-the-scenes looks, and cast videos.
