It appears there’s going to be a bit of a Sherlock Holmes reunion, as Variety reports that Jude Law is likely to reunite with director Guy Ritchie for Knights Of The Round Table: King Arthur. However he won’t be on the good guy side this time, as he’s apparently up to play the villain.
There’s no news on exactly who Law will play. The hope is that this will be the first part of a six-film series, so Law could be in line to play a baddie just in this movie, or a threat that will be present throughout the franchise. If he’s the latter he will presumably be the traitor Mordred.
Charlie Hunnam is set to play Arthur, with Astrid Berges-Frisbey as Guinevere. Sadly while Idris Elba was previously attached to play Arthur’s mentor, he’s apparently no longer involved.
The plan is to shoot early next year, with a July 22nd, 2016 release planned.
