As we mentioned in an storyearlier today, Warner Bros. is keen to get Gary Oldman onboard its live-action version of Akira, but that’s not the only thing they’d like him in, as Deadline reports that they’re also offering him a role in their new take on Arthurian legend, Arthur & Lancelot.
Oldman is wanted for the role of Merlin in the movie, opposite the recently cast Joel Kinnaman as Lancelot. David Dobkin is directing Arthur & Lancelot from his own screenplay, which is a reimagined version of the King Arthur and Sir Lancelot tales (although it’s not known exactly how things have been reimagined).
As yet it isn’t known if Oldman will accept the role.
