Merlin Comes To Movies, 21st Century

You can't keep a good wizard down. King Arthur's favored mage, Merlin, is about to come back - back to cinema screens, back to life and back to a century he'd never made - in a mysterious new movie project.

Novelist and screenwriter Jay Basu is behind the pitch that's been picked up by Working Title Productions that will see the wizard arrive in the 21st century, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Details about the project are unknown, but it wouldn't be outside the realms of possibility that it'll be some kind of family-friendly franchise to take advantage of distraught Potter fans wondering what to watch now that the movies are almost over.
