WB Revives <i>Arthur & Lancelot</i> as Colin Farrell Circles Lead Role

Less than two months after Warner Bros. postponed Arthur & Lancelot because of budget problems, the studio is reportedly looking to resurrect David Dobkin’s drama with Colin Farrell in a lead role.

Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) and Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) has been set to star, respectively, as the legendary king and his most trusted knight before ballooning costs — they’re rumored to have grown from $90 million to $130 million — led executives to pull the plug. The delay created scheduling conflicts for the two young television actors which, according to Variety, works out well for Warner Bros.: With Farrell in negotiations for one of the lead roles, Arthur & Lancelot would have a recognizable star, easing concerns about that big budget.

Dobkin’s take on the Camelot legend reportedly depicts Arthur as an illegitimate son raised by a poor knight in a village who’ll grow up to be the ruler of England. Lancelot, on the other hand, is a rebellious noble with a distrust of government. Guinevere will play only a minor role in the film, but will be featured more prominently in potential sequels.
